International nuts and bolts:
(NYSE:HAL) finished 2012 on a high note internationally, setting quarterly revenue records in all three of its international segments. Which markets led the pack? Motley Fool energy and materials analyst Taylor Muckerman provides coloring in the video below.

In the past, some had worried that the company's increased concentration on deepwater and international markets could lead to deterioration in its North American strength. This quarter's performance is proof that this foresight was well-warranted, but the growth shows few signs of slowing, and management expects an even brighter international performance in 2013.
