Three from Barclays charged.

The on-going Libor drama on Wall Street added a new chapter as three traders were criminally charged for alleged fraud by British prosecutors.

In this segment of The Motley Fool's financials-focused show, Where the Money Is, banking analysts Matt Koppenheffer and David Hanson debate the impact of these arrests on bank investors. David argues that these issues can highlight a company's culture problems but as long as the stock is discounted appropriately, investors shouldn't shy away.
