The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino discusses topics across the investing world.

In this edition, Isaac addresses three critical factors that will drive growth for Dow Jones Industrial component GE. First off, the industrial conglomerate has positioned itself to profit from infrastructure growth as urbanization takes off around the world. Second, the company intends to focus on "resource-rich" countries with access to energy and minerals that are in high demand but scarce supply. Finally, GE's natural gas exposure is critical. In the U.S., GE has teamed up with Chesapeake to create "CNG in a Box" fueling stations. On top of this, the company plans to sell 140 natural gas turbines in 2012, 135 of which will be sold outside of the U.S.

International expansion remains critical for GE, but there are other American companies making waves in foreign markets. If the trend continues, investors could be looking at internationally fueled new stock highs. Uncover three additional companies in our special free report: "3 Companies Set to Dominate the World."
