The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor and analyst Brendan Byrnes and consumer-goods editor and analyst Austin Smith discuss topics around the investing world.
In today's edition, Brendan and Austin discuss three dividend producers that they agree with Jim Cramer on. Cramer recently put out buy ratings on 3M, Honeywell, and GE. Brendan agrees that 3M is a buy based on its high margins, pricing power, and expanding international presence. Honeywell rates as a buy because of its recently raised full-year guidance, improved margins, and exposure to the rapidly growing aerospace market. Brendan agrees that GE is a buy as well, because of its emphasis on its energy infrastructure segment, which has great growth prospects; its lower-risk GE Capital unit; and its solid 3.4% dividend.
GE, 3M, and Honeywell all look like solid long-term dividend bets, but if you're interested in taking a look at some other high yielders, The Motley Fool has compiled a special free report outlining our nine top dependable dividend-paying stocks.
