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

The online-streaming game continues to heat up. Today it's Comcast that's throwing its hat into the ring by rolling out its own Netflix-like streaming service. This move puts the No. 1 and No. 2 video subscription services firmly in the arena of streaming content. If nothing else, it cements streaming video's position as the content-delivery medium of the future, and investors need to take note today.

While investing in the streaming arena is certainly exciting, with so many players it can be hard to pin down the winners. That's not the case with one stock our chief investment officer has dubbed "The Motley Fool's Top Stock for 2012." This emerging-market retailer is the biggest fish in a growing pond of profits, and we believe it will handsomely reward investors that get in in the early stages of this growth story.
