Stocks For The Next Decade Each Safe Haven Investor Need To Know

When it comes to times of uncertainty and volatility, nothing beats safe haven stocks. What are they? They are dividend stocks with high yields and minimal risk as compared to other stocks.

You might have noticed that the federal banks flooding the markets with cheap money and investors started to get greedy by taking more and more debt to buy stocks higher and bonds extraordinary higher.

Those times come to an end if rates rise or something else crosses like weak economic data. This time, the strong dollar could bring the rally to an end.

Today I like to show you 13 stocks with cheap price ratios and an extremely stable business model that can resist the greatest market storm. It does not mean that the stock price goes down but with every recession those stocks become stronger and stronger.

These are my ideas. What do you guess?

  1. Nice list. Wondering on your judgement of GAP. They are closing stores and could be unreliable due to fashion styles etc ?

    1. Thanks for your comment. In general, it is good when a company or retailer closes stores that produce losses. In the end, sales will decrease but earnings grow. GPS is an iconic American brand with only a small amount of debt. The P/E's for 16 and 17 is 14 and 12.6. That's a good figure especially when you look at the cash flow strength and current yields of 2.3%

    1. You're right. Retail or Store Business is a difficult industry where new comers can hurt the deeply grown structures of the existing market makers. But as long as no competitors available, you can make big profits.
