1 Dividend Stock to Love Today

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer-goods editor and analyst Austin Smith and energy editor Joel South discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Austin talks about one of his favorite dividend-paying retailers: Macy's. He looks at this company's responsible management of discounting during the holiday season as just one indication of a disciplined and calculating management team. Coupled with other great investor-friendly moves like a recent doubling of the dividend, and a major share repurchase plan, he thinks this company is one of the few out there that will survive what is being labeled as "The Death of Retail."

You can learn more about that trend in a report penned by our top analysts, and you can click here to read more. The report is a must-read for the retail investor today -- and it's totally free.
