10 Stable Stocks to Buy Now for a Wobbly Market

The past several weeks have been frustrating for investors. While an eight-day win streak for the Dow Jones Industrial Average showed we’re clearly not in the throes of a bear market, things largely still aren’t very bullish, either. We’re still in the midst of a garden-variety correction, and as many traders have been reminded, corrections are a process rather than a short-lived event.

The current process might not be completed just yet. Indeed, after an incredible unfettered runup over the course of 2017, it could be weeks before the market finds a true floor and is able to rekindle its former bullishness.

That doesn’t necessarily mean investors must simply ride it out with what they have. The right stocks can minimize market volatility, and maybe even drive gains at a time of year that’s lethargic, at best.
