Bush at the White House. Concerns about Chinese barriers to U.S. exports are expected to be high on the agenda for the April 20 meeting.The biggest of the 27 deals is for $1 billion with Flextronics (FLEX.O: Quote, Profile, Research), which helps automotive, industrial, medical and technology companies design and build electronics products... http://tinyurl.com/pk2k9FLEX shares had been weak until just recently, the last several days have shown some surprising strength! Perhaps news of this possible contract signing is responsible?JT :-)
