3 No-Brainer Stocks to Buy in a Downturn


Despite the market's sluggishness this year, it is too early to determine if we are in a recession. A subsequent bad quarter will help decide this result. 


Until then, it makes prudent to prepare for a potential economic slowdown by purchasing equities that can prosper in such a climate. 


Let us examine these three mainstays. Due to their business structures, healthcare behemoth Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ), discount retailer Dollar General (NYSE: DG), 


and storage and moving rental provider Amerco (NASDAQ: UHAL) all perform well during a recession.

Johnson & Johnson's reliability in a recession

In the past year, Johnson & Johnson's stock has increased by more than 3%, while the S&P 500 has declined by 20%. 

Dollar General's results have been on the money

Dollar General not only thrives throughout recessions, but also shows no signs of slowing down. The stock has gained over 11% during the past year.

Amerco's revenue is on the move

The company's stock has down 29% over the past year, but because it manages storage units, it is a unique firm that is a solid option if a recession should occur.
