This video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst Austin Smith discusses topics around the investing world.
Jim Cramer, the storied investor and host of CNBC's Mad Money, makes a lot of buy and sell recs on stocks. Sometimes they're right, sometimes they're wrong. In today's edition, Austin discusses three dividend stocks on which Cramer recently put a buy rating that he agrees with: Cummins, Caterpillar, and IBM. While all three of these companies may yield a bit less than the broad market, all are great buys today. Cummins has relationships in place with natural-gas dynamo Wesport, Caterpillar has seen big growth abroad, and IBM is surprisingly bullish for a tech company of its age and maturity. All three of these stocks are strong additions to most portfolios.
Of course, these aren't the only great dividends you can buy, in fact, they aren't even close. You can learn more in our report: "Secure Your Future With 9 Rock-Solid Dividend Stocks." You can access your complimentary copy today at no cost! Just click here to discover the winners we've picked.
