This video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which senior analyst Anand Chokkavelu, CFA, and technology and media editor/analyst Andrew Tonner discuss topics across the investing world.
As part of the Motley Fool Madness series, Anand and Andrew go head-to-head analyzing two Dow titans. In today's showdown, we look at two companies Warren Buffett's talked about recently: IBM and JPMorgan Chase. He's bought shares of IBM for his holding company, Berkshire Hathaway, and bought shares of JPMorgan in his personal account. Anand makes the case for JPMorgan's stock over the next year while Andrew advocates for IBM.
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 has featured it in its brand-new free report: "The Stocks Only the Smartest Investors Are Buying." We invite you to download a free copy. To find out the name of the bank Buffett would probably be interested in if he could still invest in small banks, just click here.
