Exporters Are Beating the S&P 500 as Sales Increase

Don't Miss Out —
Follow us on:

U.S. companies are selling more products abroad than ever before. Exports rose in June to $191 billion, driven by higher sales of food and beverages, industrial supplies, capital goods and consumer goods. Only autos and auto parts declined versus the previous month.

Insight & Action

Exports are essential to growth here at home. Non-U.S. sales account for roughly two thirds of total sales for the S&P 500 -- one reason why Bernanke & Co. has been moving in lock-step with central bankers abroad. Of this group, we can further identify the biggest exporters: sixty-two companies in the S&P 500 get more than half their sales abroad.

Insight & Action

So, companies with higher exports and with exports as a high percentage of total sales -- so far so good. What are these companies saying? In fact, fifteen of these 62 exporters have raised their forward earnings guidance since June 30. Here's the list:

Insight & Action

The shares of this group have added 30 percent this year, significantly outperforming the S&P 500 as a whole.

Insight & Action

As an added bonus for blog readers, note the following large exporters that are expected to report earnings in the next two weeks: Analog Devices Inc. (ADI ), Autodesk Inc. (ADSK ), AES Corp. (AES ), Applied Materials Inc. (AMAT ), Estee Lauder Cos. (EL ), Expeditors International of Washington Inc. (EXPD ), Molex Inc. (MOLX ), Nvidia Corp. (NVDA ), Priceline.com Inc. (PCLN ).
