Thanks in large part to the ongoing Eurozone debt crisis, this was the worst week for stocks in two months.
The S&P 500 fell 4.7%… the Dow fell 4.8%… and the Nasdaq fell 5.1%.
With this in mind, we thought it’d be a good time to reiterate what we believe are the best stocks to own in ANY kind of market.
The analysts we follow at Stansberry Research call them “world dominating” stocks.
They have the best brand names, fat profit margins, pricing power, and stable cash flows.
And since they have little or no debt, a credit crisis isn’t a serious concern for them — making them the safest of long-term investment vehicles.
As Dan Ferris explains, when you own “world dominating” stocks at the right price, you don’t need to worry about where the S&P 500 is going to be in one week, one month, or even one year.
You don’t have to try to guess the future — you just know that you own a valuable company at an unbeatable price… and you can hold on to the stock through whatever kind of market comes its way.
And as Brett Eversole explains, not only do “world dominating” stocks tend to hold up better than the overall market during a downturn, but they typically offer higher returns with less risk during “normal” times as well.
For this reason, if you’re investing for the long-haul, these stocks should be at the top of your list.
Below are a list of seven of our favorite “world dominators” that Stansberry Research analysts have identified in the past.
Each of these stocks are named in our list of “The 10 Best Dividend Stocks to Own Right Now.”
Tomorrow we’ll give you the names of two of these “world dominators” that (by one standard of measure) are flashing a “BUY” signal right now.
In short, thanks to a combination of dividend hikes and a pullback in the market, these stocks are now offering some of their highest yields in history. You’ll get the details tomorrow.
