The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor and analyst Isaac Pino and health-care editor and analyst David Williamson discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Isaac discusses the world's leading online retailer, Amazon.com. While the company has posted a 40% top-line growth rate in successive years, many investors are concerned with the razor-thin profit margins generated by the company. Isaac takes a look at the strategy Jeff Bezos has outlined and discusses the competitive advantage created by Amazon's Prime service. The company has definitely disrupted the retailing industry, but is it poised for success in mobile computing and streaming video as well?

Amazon's looming presence in retail is growing, but there's another company blazing a new retail trail in Latin America. In fact, it's been referred to as "The Costco of Latin America." This stock has so much promise we've dubbed it: "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.
