This video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which advisor Charly Travers and analyst Jason Moser discuss topics across the investing world.

In his Investment Outlook earlier this month, bond king Bill Gross said that one of the investment options he currently favors is "dividend paying stocks with a preference for developing over developed markets." Charly and Jason agree with this strategy and discuss five wide-moat businesses that are benefiting from the attractive growth of emerging markets while sharing their riches with shareholders through steady dividend increases.
