The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which senior analyst Matt Argersinger and analyst Paul Chi discuss topics across the investing world.

Watch the video below to see what Matt is watching for and to see if MercadoLibre still makes sense even at today's lofty price.
