The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and analyst Jason Moser discuss topics across the investing world.

A recent study by The Wall Street Journal found that big, American companies have emerged from the Great Recession stronger than ever. They're more productive, more profitable, and they have more cash and less debt. John and Jason discuss how these companies were able to bounce back from the market low in early 2009. The video concludes with John's favorite idea from this group of stocks.

One factor that allowed some companies to rebound more quickly was global demand. There are three 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."
