OK, so that headline didn't really make much sense.  But doesn't it feel good to start the day with a little John Denver?  The point of the headline was to say that another area that I have been focusing on looking for investment opportunities in, U.S. companies that are heavily involved in exporting their goods (see my blog from 1/24 http://caps.fool.com/Blogs/ViewPost.aspx?bpid=31274&t=01001019292467236494), is playing out perfectly.  Today the government announced that U.S. exports rose 1.5% in December to $144.32 billion.

Too bad I haven't purchased more companies in this area yet.  One that I did buy is Hurco (HURC).  Its stock has pulled back significantly over the past several months and a large portion of its business comes from overseas.  I will keep my eyes open for more opportunities along these lines.

You might look at BEAV which I've owned for 2 years and whose stock price has pulled back from 54 in December to about 41.5 The largest supplier of stuff that goes into airplane interiors, 70% of it's business is overseas. Recently, the CEO stated that 2008-2010 earnings will increase 40%, 25%, and 25% on confirmed orders which doesn't include any 787 #'s.

Thanks for the suggestion, wolfhounds.  I'll definitely look into that one.
