The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which editor and analyst Isaac Pino and industrials editor and analyst Brendan Byrnes discuss topics across the investing world.
In today's edition, Isaac and Brendan discuss European industrial giant Siemens, which kicked off the first quarter with mediocre earnings results. The company noted another write-down, this time primarily due to wind turbine grid connection delays. The 200-million-euro charge hit Siemens' profits and share price, but overall Siemens' order backlog is robust and will continue to grow. Perhaps this is a stock that could be significantly undervalued when the shadow hanging over Europe disappears.
While Siemens searches for growth outside of Europe, another company has already cornered much of the Latin American market.
