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

In a continuation of our series, two of the Fool's analysts talk about one dividend to buy and one dividend to sell in 2012. Brendan likes Waste Management for its high dividend and competitive advantages. Austin dislikes Vector Group for its unsustainable payout ratio and inability to compete with its peers.

Waste Management looks to be a solid dividend stock going forward, but if you want some ideas for high-yielding companies, you're in luck.
