NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Companies such as iPhone maker Apple (AAPL - Get Report) and search firm Google (GOOG) capture investors' attention because they do business in wildly growing markets. What happens when a company is tapped into two fast-growing fields?Cubic Corp. (CUB - Get Report), a small-cap stock, is just such a company. San Diego, Calif.-based Cubic is benefiting from two trends: providing military products and services, particularly in the areas of training and communications, as well as developing, installing and, in many cases, operating the fare-collection systems of mass-transit systems for 40 major markets on five continents, including New York and Washington, D.C. While defense offerings account for about 70% of revenue, operating profits are split almost 50/50 between defense and mass transit.
