Why This Big Acquisition Should Still Succeed

This video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes and technology and media editor/analyst Andrew Tonner discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Brendan discusses the recent announcement that European regulators will be taking a more in-depth look at United Technologies' acquisition of Goodrich. Brendan doesn't think investors have a whole lot to worry about, and thinks the deal will ultimately go through. While United Tech certainly paid a lot for Goodrich ($16.5 billion), Brendan thinks this will be great for the company long-term, as it will give it greater exposure to the booming commercial aviation market, estimated by Boeing to total $4 trillion in new orders through 2030.

United Technologies gets about 20% of its revenues from emerging markets, but it's certainly not the only company capitalizing on this opportunity. There are three companies whose international growth stories we're particularly bullish on. If the trend continues, investors could be looking at internationally fueled new stock highs.
