In this episode of State of the Market, Chief Income Strategist Marc Lichtenfeld is getting into the holiday spirit.

“This year is a little different than Christmases past,” Marc says. “We have inflation raging and an economy that is recovering from recession that could very well tip back into recession if interest rates continue to rise.”

Find out which three companies are at the top of Marc’s “nice” list in this week’s State of the Market.
