Dow Showdown: Intel vs. AT&T

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor and analyst Austin Smith and technology and media editor/analyst Andrew Tonner discuss topics across the investing world.

As part of The Motley Fool Madness series, Andrew and Austin go head-to-head analyzing two Dow titans of industry. In today's showdown, Intel collides with AT&T. Intel is the 800-pound gorilla in the semiconductor sphere, looks ridiculously cheap right now, and pays the rare tech dividend. Intel's yield is almost half that of dividend dynamo AT&T, though, which rewards shareholders with close to 6% in annual payments.

Both of these companies pay high-dividends, but they aren't the best ones out there.
