The following video is from this week's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with Jeff Fischer and Bryan Hinmon, discuss the latest business news. In this segment the guys analyze discount retailers like Dollar General and Family Dollar, the competitive threat they face from companies like Big Lots and CVS, and why investors seeking value should steer clear.

One of the keys for retailers like Starbucks is being able to expand into, and eventually dominate, emerging markets.
