Why You Should Buy the McDonald's of Latin America

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which senior analyst Matt Argersinger and analyst Paul Chi discuss topics across the investing world. Last fall, Matt and Paul bought shares in Arcos Dorados -- the so-called McDonald's of Latin America -- for their Streetfighter portfolio, a real-money portfolio on Fool.com. Despite good earnings and solid growth projections, Arcos has been crushed along with many other emerging market stocks during the recent rout.

But Matt and Paul are as convinced as ever that this is a company investors should think about investing in for the next five years and beyond, and so they're adding to their position. Get their full take on Arcos Dorados by watching the video below.  

With Europe in shambles, many investors may be nervous about investing in a company that's internationally focused, but they shouldn't be. Emerging markets are giving new life to established American companies with deep pockets. As these industry titans look abroad for more sales, they aren't starting with a blank slate -- they're bringing their operational excellence to new markets and thriving. To uncover these picks today, we invite you to read a copy of our free report: "3 American Companies Set to Dominate the World."

    I love the emerging market story of Arcos Dorados. Nobody is in much of a mood for anything from emerging market at the moment, so might be the great time to pick some up on the cheap.
