The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and analyst Jason Moser discuss topics across the investing world.
Mike Mayo, a leading bank analyst, recently floated the idea that JPMorgan Chase should consider selling off some of its business lines. He felt that the bank was not best-in-breed across the breadth of its businesses, and that it needed to do something about that. John and Jason discuss this bold recommendation, and then offer their outlook on JPMorgan.
The financial heavies, like JPMorgan, 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."
