Ford's Ambitious Emerging Market Strategy

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series in which consumer goods editor and analyst Austin Smith and industrials editor and analyst Brendan Byrnes discuss topics across the investing world.

Ford (NYS: F) has made a remarkable comeback in the U.S. over the past few years, and now it will look to focus more on emerging markets -- specifically India and China. The India market is one that Ford has high hopes for in the future, with its low penetration, rising wages, and huge young population. What is Ford's strategy in these markets, and can the Blue Oval pull it off?

General Motors (NYS: GM) and Ford will use emerging markets to drive growth in the future, and we believe that we have uncovered another company that will take advantage of these huge opportunities as well. Our chief investment officer hand-picked this company and details it in The Motley Fool's free report, "Top Stock for 2012." In it you'll discover the company best positioned to realize tremendous growth in Latin America. You can access the report -- 100% free of charge -- by clicking here. Fool on!
