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

In today's edition, Austin and Andrew again assess two dividends, one they like and one they dislike. Andrew likes telecom stalwart AT&T. He thinks its strong cash-flow position will enable the company to continue to dominate telecom for years into the future. Austin dislikes Avon because of recent turmoil on its executive team and emerging threats from stronger competitors overseas.
