Motley Fool analyst Anand Chokkavelu highlights a possible buying opportunity in tobacco giant Philip Morris International
U.S. investors normally only have two choices when picking up international exposure in individual stocks: ADRs (foreign companies listed on U.S. exchanges) or U.S.-based companies that do a bunch of business in foreign countries, like Coca-Cola. Coca-Cola does well over half its business outside the United States.

And it's starting to look darn tempting at today's prices.
