Europe’s Financial Woes A Good Thing?

It appears weakness in Europe might not be an equal opportunity albatross. In fact, some may find the situation somewhat welcoming.

Who could possibly benefit from the weakness overseas? Exporters - especially German exporters!

According to Fast Money trader Tim Seymour, Germany is quite healthy. And they generate two and half times more exports than the combined PIIGS to Asia. In fact, until recently Germany was the number 1 exporting country in the world.

And weakness in the euro means goods and services produced in Germany are cheaper to buyers using other currencies.

So what names could see the biggest boost?

Siemen’s , Daimler , BMW , BASF, FMS are all names for your radar, says Tim Seymour. They’re all fantastic export stories.
