CCL…classic “spending stock.” If the economy is in the tank, folks won’t have much money to spend on Caribbean cruises.

Copper – Indication of economic activity. Maybe skewed though since supposedly JPM has cornered the market??

CMICummins is the world’s largest independent maker of high-horsepower diesel engines… the kind that power bulldozers, cranes, heavy trucks, mining shovels, and electrical generators. This makes its share price rise and fall with the pace of economic and infrastructure activity.

HOGSince many of the company’s motorcycles carry a price tag of over $15,000, HOG’s fortunes are tied to America’s ability to drop extra money on “toys.”
