Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC) has underperformed the financial sector for years, and for good reasons. From its numerous scandals to the asset-cap penalty that prevents the bank from growing, Wells Fargo was hurting before the pandemic. And as the only big bank without a large investment banking operation to help offset the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, Wells Fargo got hit harder than most in 2020. 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.

The Federal Reserve recently released the results of 2020 bank stress tests, and while no banks are in serious danger, some would see capital levels fall a bit too low for comfort in a prolonged and deep COVID-19 recession.
