The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor and analyst Isaac Pino and industrials editor and analyst Brendan Byrnes discuss topics across the investing world.
In today's edition, Isaac and Brendan focus on the auto sector, assessing the major players in this industry and picking the companies that will prosper down the road, with close scrutiny given to Goodyear's earnings. When compared to the tire supply business, original equipment manufacturers appear attractive. The big players like Ford and GM produce more differentiated products that drive higher margins, and also seem to be resonating with customers.
Upon closer inspection, Ford appears more attractive than many of the auto companies, and one reason in particular is the announcement of a dividend payment.
