With big banks being notoriously opaque to investors, it can often be difficult to decide whether or not a bank is a buy based on valuation alone. In this video, Motley Fool financial analyst Matt Koppenheffer takes investors through five big banks that have low valuations at the moment, takes a look at the fundamentals of each, and tells investors which ones are a buy today.

One of the banks Matt tells us about is Regions Financial. With big finance firms still trading at deep discounts to their historic norms, investors everywhere are wondering if this is the new normal, or whether finance stocks are a screaming buy today. The answer depends on the company, so to help figure out whether Regions Financial is a buy today, I invite you to read our premium research report on the company. Click here now for instant access!
