I've worked at companies that did ground-related things. They tend to lose big when people realize that third-world nations (an incredibly dated expression, eh?) have lots of ground and people willing to take things out of it or put things in.
My personal bias has been towards medical companies, but too many other people have followed the same chain of logic.

My new investment theory for the New New Market:
If the company doesn't take something out of the ground, put something in the
ground, make stuff that facilitates either putting stuff in or taking stuff out
of the ground, or make something out of something that's either put into or
taken out of the ground, it's not a good investment at this time.
