The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Motley Fool editors Austin Smith and Brendan Byrnes search for value in the market.

In today's edition, Brendan and Austin look at China and examine which automakers are best positioned in the world's most populous country and biggest auto market. GM and industry executives expect overall growth next year of between 7% and 10% for the Chinese auto market, which is increasing from 2011 but down significantly from 2010. Even though GM and other foreign automakers split their profits in China through joint ventures, this is still a massively important market for these companies. Watch as we analyze which companies are poised to take advantage of Chinese auto growth in the future.

Ford and GM both could begin issuing a dividend next year.
