1. Bank of Canada kept interest rates at 2.5% as expected and seemed to suggest that it is no hurry to raise rates.
  2. BMO earned $1.04 per share (vs. expectations of $1.09) and CIBC earned $1.20 well shy of analyst expectations of $1.44. CIBC closed 2.25% lower today.
  3. JLP at AllThingsFinancial alerts that many iShares ETFs are splitting. I’ll have to update the Sleepy Portfolio holdings.
  4. I checked out the new My Google portal. Unlike other innovative Google offerings like Blogger, Picasa, Maps and Gmail, the portal seems to be a me-too service. I use My Yahoo! all the time and I see little reason to switch.
