The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor and analyst Austin Smith and industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes discuss topics across the investing world.
In today's edition, Austin and Brendan recap their recent discussion of International Paper. The global paper and packaging company may elicit yawns from some investors, but this high-yielder is a stable and growing company that dovetails nicely with most portfolios. Austin touches on IP's international ambitions, and some of the trends he will be watching to gauge what potential success they may have coming down the pipeline. Don't judge this book by its cover: International Paper pays a decent dividend and has made the right moves in expanding internationally.
