Better Buy in the Dow: GE vs. Kraft

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which research analyst Catherine Baab-Muguira and industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Isaac and Cat take a look at two Dow stocks: General Electric and Kraft Foods. GE's finance unit, GE Capital, just announced that it will again pay a dividend to the parent company, revealing a stronger capital position overall. Meanwhile, Kraft is gearing up to split into two separate companies later this year, spinning off its North American grocery business from its growing global snacks business. Recently, both Bill Ackman and Warren Buffett have reduced their positions in Kraft. Which is a better bet for your investment dollars: GE or Kraft?

Dow companies continue to eye emerging markets for growth, and GE and Kraft are no exception. However, 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 Companies Set to Dominate the World."
