The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor Charly Travers discuss topics around the investing world.

Wal-Mart just announced that it has increased its stake in Yihaodian, a leading Chinese e-commerce website, to 51%. Charly thinks this is a smart move, and he discusses what this might mean for investors. John and Charly then discuss a few companies that are looking to profit from China's tremendous growth.

With the domestic markets yielding largely lackluster returns for many companies, investors can often be left wondering where the growth is. Fortunately, there are three companies, in addition to Wal-Mart, whose international growth stories we're particularly bullish on. If the trend continues, investors could be looking at internationally fueled new stock highs. Uncover them in our special free report:  "3 Companies Set to Dominate the World."
