The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor/analyst Austin Smith discusses topics across the investing world.
In today's edition, Austin discusses Yum! Brands' recent woes and response to its ailing Taco Bell line. The company has left a lot to be desired by neglecting its domestic business, but the recent accusations that its beef wasn't actually beef could be the spark that was needed for the company to revamp the Taco Bell chain.
Yum! Brands' Chinese growth is old news, so it's tough to get an edge over other investors looking to play that angle. That's good news for investors of one still-undiscovered international retailer, though. We like this one stock so much we've dubbed it: "The Death of Wal-Mart: The Real Cash Kings Changing the Face of Retail." In it, you'll see which retailers are able to consistently outperform and how two cash kings are planning to ride the waves of retail's changing tide. You can access it by clicking here.
