Why This Deal Is Dynamite

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

In today's edition, Brendan and Austin analyze UPS' deal to purchase TNT Express. The deal, if approved, would put UPS on essentially equal footing with DHL in Europe, and give it more exposure to important markets in Latin America and China. Brendan thinks that the 9.50 euro price per share is fair, and believes it's a solid deal for both companies. UPS will generate millions in synergies, and extend its lead as the leading shipping and logistics company, an industry in which size and volume matter.

This deal will help UPS expand its international footprint even further, but there are plenty of other companies also poised to capitalize from this trend in the future. In particular, there are three other companies whose international growth stories we're particularly bullish on. If the trend continues, investors could be looking at internationally fueled new stock highs. Uncover them in our special free report: "3 American Companies Set to Dominate the World."
