9 Best Stocks to Buy Amid Market Turmoil

Thinkstock

Finding the best stocks to buy is never easy, but investors have had a particularly difficult time finding trades they can have confidence in during the presidential contest of 2016. The stark differences between the economic plans of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump mean it’s hard to know for certain what the next four years will hold.

On top of that, the market has been stuck in a rut since July. And the non-action by the Federal Reserve at a highly anticipated September meeting has many investors on pins and needles about what comes next.

It’s safe to say that as 2016 draws to a close, then, that many folks are looking for stability and protection instead of high-growth opportunities to take to the bank. And if this describes you, you’re probably looking for three things in your stocks:

    1. A large, entrenched company that’s not going anywhere
    2. A reliable stream of income via dividends
    3. A company that isn’t just defensive but also poised for future growth and success

I’ve compiled a list of 9 picks that meet all three of these measures. Every one of them would be a great fit for investors looking to weather the volatility in the coming months.
