The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Brendan Byrnes, industrials editor and analyst, and Andrew Tonner, technology editor and analyst, discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, they continue their series of looking at one dividend stock to buy and one to sell in 2012. Brendan likes the impressive same-store-sales growth and the reliable and steady revenue stream at McDonald's. Andrew dislikes Hewlwtt-Packard, which is struggling after some questionable decisions.
