Volatile markets might keep you up at night, but long-term investors would do well to remember that they're also a chance to get high-quality stocks at bargain prices. Hey, any time blue-chip stocks go on sale, investors should be ready to pounce.

Wall Street analysts certainly think that way. The blue-chip Dow Jones Industrial Average fell more than 4% in the first quarter of 2018. The broader Standard & Poor's 500-stock index lost nearly 3%, while the technology-heavy Nasdaq Composite declined 2%. And the general retreat in share prices has analysts licking their chops over all the great buys to be found.
