Where the Money Is - August 12, 2013

The following video is Monday's edition of the Motley Fool's all-financials show, Where the Money Is, with host Alison Southwick and Motley Fool financial and banking analyst Matt Koppenheffer.

In today's edition, Matt starts with a look at some of today's biggest headlines. First up is the big news out of BlackBerry and what it -- along with other big deal announcements -- means for the mergers and acquisitions market and M&A leaders like JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs. Also on tap are more metals-warehousing scrutiny for the big banks and what looks like some IPO shenanigans.

Matt then goes on to discuss what fantasy football taught him about investing, and gives viewers a preview of what's to come on Thursday, when a group of Fool analysts will give their top picks for which stocks they're drafting from the financial sector.

Finally, a look into the Twitterverse, at some of Matt's favorite tweets of the day, and a discussion of why talking about a company "missing analysts' estimates" is just silly.

Many investors are terrified about investing in big banking stocks after the crash, but the sector has one notable stand-out. In a sea of mismanaged and dangerous peers, it rises above as "The Only Big Bank Built to Last." You can uncover the top pick that Warren Buffett loves in The Motley Fool's new report.
