Is Honeywell a Buy Today?

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which editor and analyst Isaac Pino and technology editor and analyst Andrew Tonner discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Isaac and Andrew discusses industrial giant Honeywell's recent earnings report.
