35 Conservative Stocks To Keep Your Portfolio Safe Today

When the recent stock market volatility started, I predicted we would see a quick reversal. Typically, the sharper the downturn, the swifter the recovery. And although things are still a bit choppy out there, I believe that’s exactly what we’re seeing right now. Now, a big factor in the market’s ability to rebound is often earnings. This earnings season has been very strong, and today, I want to reveal to you 35 A-rated conservative stocks worth taking a second look at…

These stocks have either submitted positive earnings guidance already this quarter, or else they’re still riding a wave from last quarter’s earnings report. Either way, every single one of these stocks are a safe bet for your money right now:

But remember, always check your stock ratings in Portfolio Grader. When you run your holdings through this screening tool, take note of each stock’s Quantitative Grade (the current level of institutional buying pressure) and each stock’s Fundamental Grade (a weighted blend of eight financial metrics). Also check which of your stocks are rated as Conservative, Moderately Aggressive or Aggressive. Shoot to have 60% of your holdings in Conservative stocks, 30% in Moderately Aggressive and only 10% in Aggressive. I can’t stress this last point enough because aggressive stocks will almost always be the first ones to take a beating during a correction, which is precisely why I chose to focus on more conservative investment options today.

Until tomorrow,
