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

Amazon.com could surpass Wal-Mart in the next few years as the largest online retailer in the world. Recent developments point to the various opportunities that will propel that growth, notably Amazon Supply, add-on transaction items, and a substantial contract with Paramount Pictures. Investors might wince at Amazon's margins, but this company continues to disrupt industry after industry and looks more attractive as a long-term investment every day.

Amazon might provide the most story lines in the retail sector, but it's not most attractive retailer on our radar. That belongs to another operator that we've also deemed "The Motley Fool's Top Stock for 2012." We've created a special free report for investors to uncover this soon-to-be rock star. The report highlights a company that is revolutionizing commerce in Latin America, and you can get instant access to the name of this company by clicking here to download it now.
