The Best Stocks to Own in a Stock Market Crash

There's been no shortage of scary headlines recently. 

Some "experts" are calling for a market meltdown by the end of the year, there's the ongoing trade war between the U.S. and China, the U.S. stock market is near all-time highs, and something called a yield curve inverted and is signalling there could be problems ahead. 

Taken together, it's a bit dizzying. And it's the kind of thing that could make investors like you and me do the absolute worst thing for our long-term wealth.

Our analysts know a thing or two about investing during periods of uncertainty -- they successfully weathered the Great Recession and have spent years studying how all the fancy economic indicators come together. They want to make sure you and your portfolio are ready when the market crashes because history has shown us it's a matter of when not if it will happen. 

Live on our YouTube channel, they're going to explain how investors should prepare for a crash and some stocks they think will perform well, even during a downturn.
