1 Company You Should Watch Today

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

In today's edition, Austin talks about a company that investors need to put on their watchlist: Coinstar. This company has grown way beyond its namesake kiosks; its Redbox service has eclipsed its coin-counting service in terms of scale and profitability. But, the company isn't content to rest on its laurels. Coinstar is inking deals with Verizon to stream content, and venturing into selling refurbished electronics and gourmet coffee. It's that sort of forward vision we like to invest in here at The Motley Fool, and just one of the reasons you should watch this company today.

While investing in the streaming arena is certainly exciting, with so many players it can be hard to pin down the winners. That's not the case with one stock our chief investment officer has dubbed: "The Motley Fool's Top Stock for 2012." This emerging market retailer is the biggest fish in a growing pond of profits, and we believe they will handsomely reward investors that get in in the early stages of this growth story.
