With the results of the new Dodd-Frank stress test coming out tonight after the market closes, many investors are wondering how the big banks are going to perform, and if they should be worried. In this video, Motley Fool financial analysts Matt Koppenheffer and David Hanson describe how this test differs from the upcoming CCAR stress test that releases results next week. The guys also tell investors which banks should come through this easily, and why Citigroup will be a bank to watch closely in these reports. 

Citigroup's stock looks tantalizingly cheap. Yet the bank's balance sheet is still in need of more repair, and there's a considerable amount of uncertainty after a shocking management shakeup. Should investors be treading carefully, or jumping on an opportunity to buy? To help figure out whether Citigroup deserves a spot on your watchlist, I invite you to read our premium research report on the bank today. We'll fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Citigroup, and what areas Citigroup investors need to watch going forward. Click here now for instant access to our best expert's take on Citigroup.
