The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer-goods editor and analyst Austin Smith and senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker discuss topics around the investing world.
In today's edition, Austin discusses one high-yielding dividend that investors shouldn't be tempted by: Avon. The company yields an impressive 5.5%, but its yield looks artificially higher after share prices got chopped following the company's foot-dragging response to potential suitor Coty. Austin thinks Coty was right to walk the other way, and Avon's delay is yet another indication of a dysfunctional company.
There are still incredible dividends out there, though, like those highlighted in our report, "Secure Your Future With 9 Rock-Solid Dividend Stocks." You can access your complimentary copy today at no cost! Just click here to discover the winners we've picked.
