Are Big Banks Fighting for Your Mortgage?

Tuesday - 4/9/2013, 4:40pm  ET

Wells Fargo and JPMorgan are the two biggest players in the mortgage origination business. This Friday, both megabanks will report earnings and hold conference calls. After dominating the mortgage business for the past couple of years, competition from the likes of Bank of America may be heating up.

In this video, Motley Fool banking analysts David Hanson and Matt Koppenheffer tell investors what to watch for in these releases and where the banks may pivot their focus. 

Wells Fargo's dedication to solid, conservative banking helped it vastly outperform its peers during the financial meltdown. Today, Wells is the same great bank as ever, but with its stock trading at a premium to the rest of the industry, is there still room to buy, or is it time to cash in your gains?
