10 Stocks Looking Cheap Now During The Cycle

The S&P 500 is already off more than 8%, which means the benchmark index has lost more than 1.7% per week on average for every full week of trading.

If anything, it’s highly unlikely that markets will keep falling so quickly — at that pace, most of the stock market would evaporate by the end of the year.

But any continued losses are unwelcome losses, so investors are rapidly fleeing to more risk-light assets. The problem is the 10-year Treasury yield now yields a mere 1.74%, and many traditional safe-haven stocks have actually enjoyed buying amid the downturn, helping to drive down their yields.

Investors do have a few options for meaningful yield, though. The very downturn that has investors scurrying to find safe-havens has created a bevy of cheap dividend stocks to buy, most of which yield about two or three times the miserable yield on the 10-year.

Here are the results...
