15 Conservative Stocks to Help Ground Your Portfolio Today

With all the recent stock market volatility, we all want to keep our portfolios safe. Now, even though the major indexes have been taking some hard hits, our best bet is still big, stable, conservative companies to ground our portfolios. In today’s blog, I’ll reveal to you 15 conservative companies that should be able to ground your portfolio today…

These stocks are all expected to put forward positive earnings guidance this quarter, and they’re each a safe bet for your money right now:

Symbol Company Name Quantitative
Grade
Fundamental
Grade
Total
Grade
ADBE Adobe Systems Incorporated A B A
BA Boeing Company A B A
BBU Brookfield Business Partners LP A C A
EL Estee Lauder Companies Inc. A C A
MA Mastercard Incorporated A C A
NEE NextEra Energy, Inc. A C A
NOC Northrop Grumman Corporation A C A
OPBK OP Bancorp A C A
PSX Phillips 66 A B A
PYPL PayPal Holdings Inc A B A
RTN Raytheon Company A C A
SNE Sony Corporation A B A
SPGI S&P Global, Inc. A C A

And 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,
