The 2 Safest Blue-Chip Stocks to Trade in a Volatile Market

by | Feb 7, 2022 | Stocks

This past January was one of the worst months the stock market’s seen since the global financial crisis of the late 2000s, with the S&P 500 ending the month down 5.3% as investors flinched over things like rising interest rates and slowing corporate profits…  

These two things sent stocks tumbling across the board! 

But the past few weeks have also added an additional complication: the threat of war! 

Geopolitical risks are notoriously hard to price into the market. But several analysts have said 

rising tensions over Russia potentially invading Ukraine has spread weakness from tech stocks to the broader market…  

Which is why I’ve decided to give away my top blue-chip stocks for 2022 that will help weather the storm.

2 Top Blue-Chip Stocks for 2022

Before we hop into the top blue-chip stocks for 2022, I want you to know that I’m still bullish on the overall market. 

I see the U.S. economy overcoming this storm either by generating stable economic data, or by the Federal Reserve pushing back its grand scheme to aggressively raise rates. 

I mean, this is why I’ve been recommending stable blue chips like Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT) to my readers for months now! 

I suggested this stock back in November when it was trading around $320 per share… 

But last time I checked Monday morning, LMT was trading around the $392 level! 

So that means while the Nasdaq dropped almost 10% during that time, this stock actually gained nearly $70 in value. 

And the best part is there’s plenty more meat on the bones, for lack of a better phrase, for defensive blue-chip stocks just like LMT.  

Check out my short video below to learn more about LMT and the next top blue-chip stock for 2022 on my list.

P.S. It’s no secret that we just experienced one of the worst market shakeouts since the COVID-19 crash in March 2020… 

The reality of it is that these volatile market conditions are becoming the new normal. 

And not just for the remainder of the year, either! 

But while most traders think massive sell-offs are something to fear, I see them as an opportunity… 

That’s especially true for swing traders who know exactly where to look — like me!
