Investing in Banks: 3 Things You Must Know

It's no secret: Investing in banks can be intimidating. It's a sector with some of the most moving parts on the market, and after the financial crisis of 2008, many investors are staying away from banks altogether. But, not all banks are created equal. In this video, Motley Fool financial analyst Matt Koppenheffer gives those who are new to investing in the banking sector some ideas on the most important things to watch to know what banks you want to have a stake in, and when the right time to buy is. 

Wells Fargo's dedication to solid, conservative banking helped it vastly outperform its peers during the financial meltdown. Today, Wells is the same great bank as ever, but with its stock trading at a premium to the rest of the industry, is there still room to buy, or is it time to cash in your gains? To help figure out whether Wells Fargo is a buy today, I invite you to download our premium research report from one of The Motley Fool's top banking analysts.
