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

In today's edition, Austin helps investors decide whether they should buy Jarden today. The company recently announced a dividend suspension in favor of a share-repurchase program. Although normally a dividend suspension is bad news, there is a compelling reason to support the move in this case.

Although Austin is thumbs-down on Jarden, he's decidedly thumbs-up on  "The Motley Fool's Top Stock for 2012." We've created a special free report for investors to uncover this soon-to-be rock star. The report highlights a company that is revolutionizing commerce in Latin America, and you can get instant access to the name of this company by clicking here to download it now.

This article represents the opinion of the writer, who may disagree with the “official” recommendation position of a Motley Fool premium advisory service. We’re motley! Questioning an investing thesis -- even one of our own -- helps us all think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.
