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

In today's edition, Brendan and Austin discuss two conglomerates with a big presence in the aerospace industry, United Technologies and Honeywell.
