Keep track of the stocks that matter to you.

Help yourself with the Fool's FREE and easy new watchlist service today.

With our domestic market largely saturated, most stalwart blue chip stocks have had to look internationally for their growth. Many have set their sights on Europe, and with good reason. The region is developed, wealthy, and stable. However, a collapsing euro has meant that those blue chips are bringing fewer dollars home and many are seeing big pressure on their earnings as a result. 

Watch the video below to get some perspective on those companies that are most troubled by this trend today. (Some of the data cited is from a Factset Earnings Insight Report.)

The important thing to remember is that currencies wax and wane, and if you're a real investor, you don't mind waiting out some rough waters for future riches. We'll help you sort through the best and worst ideas today and offer up three tier 1 investments in our free report "The 3 Dow Stocks Dividend Investors Need." It's absolutely free, so just click here and get your copy today.
