The following is a list of LA based companies that I
found using MSN Investor (it is now free!).  I
sorted the list by industry name as opposed to
alphabetically by company name.

*Avondale Industries is a bit of a ringer, when I
first found it it was listed as above, I checked a few
days later and found it missing from the screen that I
use, doing further research I had found that Avondale
has been bought out by Litton, so it may no longer be
considered a LA based company.
