2 Dividend Stocks, but Only 1 Worth Buying

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series in which consumer goods editor/analyst Austin Smith discusses topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Austin looks at two very similar, but ultimately different companies, Campbell Soup and Heinz. Despite looking very similar on paper, there are fundamental and macro factors that cause Austin to pick one over the other. Campbell looks slightly cheaper than Heinz, and offers a nearly identical dividend. Both companies are looking to emerging markets for growth, though Campbell's recent earnings look gloomy next to Heinz's. Watch the video below to see which dividend is a buy today

Yielding 3.5%, these companies are big into rewarding shareholders, but they aren't the only ones. In fact, we've uncovered 11 even better dividends.
