CAPS member akbarcaskey678 elaborates on the bull case:

TD bank is a great bank, customer service is unparalleled and they are expanding all around the United States not to mention, expanding their business model from just a bank to brokerage accounts and insurance arms. The Canadian banking system, in my opinion is the finest in the world, thus I can see this bank approaching 100 . Sort of like the Goldman Sachs of Canada.
