The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino and research analyst Lyons George discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Isaac reacts to General Motors' earnings call, which revealed nominal domestic growth and lackluster profitability figures. Operationally, GM has made significant strides over the past few years, but the company fails to measure up to Ford and Toyota in many respects. As a result, GM dropped 2 percentage points of domestic market share to competitors and provided a rather dismal outlook for North American growth and profitability for the rest of 2012. Shareholders are hoping that GM's investments in China more than make up for some of the slack in the U.S. and Europe.

GM and Ford are accelerating into foreign markets, but they're not the only companies making inroads abroad. There are three more companies whose international growth stories we're particularly bullish on. Uncover them in our special free report: "3 Companies Set to Dominate the World."
