Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC) has underperformed the financial sector for years, and for good reasons.

But on this week's installment of Industry Focus: Financials, Fool.com contributor Matt Frankel, CFP, tells host Jason Moser why he thinks this could be a great value investment as we head into the New Year.
