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, they continue their series of looking at one dividend stock to buy and one to sell in 2012. Austin is giving Garmin a thumbs-down because of its recent dividend cut, competition from smartphones, and lack of entrance into the automotive sector. Andrew thinks China Mobile is a compelling buy. Its subscriber base is twice the U.S. population, it has a massive amount of cash, and it continues to put up steady growth figures.
