Combat Market Volatility With These 2 Top Defensive Stocks

by | Oct 11, 2021 | Stocks

If you study the stock market like I do, then you already know that investors tend to bail out of stocks when they go south…. I mean, I get it. 

But you probably also know that sometimes it’s best to combat market volatility with top defensive stocks.

I say that because most major indexes are trading in what I like to call the “twilight zone,” which occurs when they’re hovering between their 50- and 200-day moving averages. This is usually when markets get choppy and lose directional bias, by the way. 

The best thing we can do is start to shift our money into top defensive stocks to combat volatility, which go up during both bullish and bearish cycles. 

So it doesn’t matter if stocks are up or down, hence the word defensive

2 Top Defensive Stocks to Combat Market Volatility This Fall 

Now, top defensive stocks to combat volatility typically lead in their space and are some of the largest companies on Wall Street. 

They offer solid dividend yield and cash flows, which makes investors and traders want to hold onto them during various market climates… Including the one we’re in right now.  

These stocks also have the tendency to outperform the broader market.

That means if the market stabilizes and starts moving higher, there’s a great chance the top defensive stocks to combat volatility on my list will show strong relative strength in relation to the overall market. 

So check out my short video below to get the top defensive stocks I’m using to beat market volatility this fall.

A friend of mine sent me this chart about three months ago. I should probably print it and keep it in my wallet next to a photo of my daughter. Given the sheer number of questions I’ve fielded lately, I’ll probably end up showing this chart more than her picture.
