This video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes and technology and media editor/analyst Andrew Tonner discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Brendan and Andrew continue their series "1 Dividend to Buy, 1 Dividend to Sell." Today, the guys look at two companies in seemingly polar opposite industries: Qualcomm and Pitney Bowes. Andrew thinks Qualcomm is a great buy for its incredible future growth prospects and its exposure to the "mobile revolution." Brendan is wary about Pitney Bowes because of its exposure to a dying printing industry, and because of its dividend, which he believes will start declining in the future. The company was also late making its foray into the software market, which could hurt Pitney Bowes long-term.

We think Qualcomm is a solid play for the future, but if you're looking for companies with a higher yield, you're in luck. Our all-star team of analysts has compiled a special free report outlining our nine top, dependable, dividend-paying stocks. It's called "Secure Your Future With 9 Rock-Solid Dividend Stocks."
