How Big Is $25 Billion for the Big Banks?

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which senior analyst Anand Chokkavelu, CFA, discusses topics around the investing world.

Twenty-five billion is a huge number. But it's not that big to the nation's largest banks, which were part of a recent banking settlement. Anand puts it all in perspective.

The financial heavies are getting a lot of press these days. And much of it is negative. But there's one small bank that's flying under the radar. It has some of the best operational numbers you'll ever see. The Motley Fool featured it in its brand-new free report: "The Stocks Only the Smartest Investors Are Buying." We invite you to download a free copy and find out the name of the bank Warren Buffett would probably be interested in if he could still invest in small banks. Access the report by clicking here.
