In this segment from today's Where the Money Is, Motley Fool financial analysts David Hanson and Matt Koppenheffer take a question from a WTMI listener with a question about First Niagara Financial Group (NASDAQ:FNFG). The bank expanded rapidly by making several acquisitions of failing banks during the crisis, but has underperformed since then. Was the expansion too overzealous? Has this bank now finally reached a place where it is ready to perform for investors?

In the video, David dives into the story behind First Niagara, and tells investors whether he's interested in this bank stock today.
