Over on CAPS, 383 of the 405 members who have rated TD Bank -- or 95% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include sahmednj and shaileshnita.

Last month, sahmednj listed several of the stock's strong points: "TD being a Canadian bank more regulated, low PE, increased ownership in [TD Ameritrade], owned [Commerce Bank] which was a huge success in North America. Will easily outperform S&P 500.”

In a pitch from January, shaileshnita also tapped TD Bank as a refreshingly safe way to get into banking:

It is a Canadian bank with a very attractive dividend. I know that their day-to-day banking business is very good as I am one of its customers. The banking sector in Canada has not been hammered as badly as in US primarily because they have been very conservative in their lending practices. The P/E is very attractive and I feel that the downside risk is very low.
