    • Raven Industries' (RAVN +4.8%) shares could fly higher, writes David Englander in Barron's, stating that the company is looking for new ways to profit even as falling oil and corn prices hurt its traditional customers.
    • One such area is building balloon's for Google’s Project Loon.
    • Raven has seen its stock slide 50% since the end of 2013 as demand for its products dried up. But that sell-off looks like an opportunity for investors, as much of the bad news appears to be in the price.
