Where This Dow Powerhouse Finds Growth

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

In the next installment of "Following the Money With This Dow Stock," Austin takes a look at mammoth media company Disney (NYSE: DIS  ) . Many investors are surprised to hear how diverse the company's revenue really is. It's grown to be so much more than Mickey Mouse and kids' cartoons -- it's a media empire that's growing internationally and into new segments. Despite its size, though, the company remains nimble and has inked content deals with Google to stay current as the nature of media consumption changes.

Disney has made huge strides in its international growth story, but for many, the move just simply isn't bold enough.
