The Closest Thing to a Recession-Proof Stock I Can Find

Keith Fitz-Gerald Jun 22, 2019

Good morning and welcome to another edition of your Total Wealth Weekender. I’m Keith Fitz-Gerald, Chief Investment Strategist for Money Map Press.

Thanks, as always, for spending a few minutes of your valuable time with me today.

I’m often asked to recommend stocks that will “beat the market” or “withstand a trade war with China” or – as of late – be “recession-proof” – a thought on the minds of many given the prospect of a Fed rate cut.

    That got me thinking.

    The 1981 tour to promote Tattoo You, the Rolling Stone latest album back then, was widely expected at the time to be the last time the Rolling Stones went on tour. Yet, 38-odd years later, I find myself getting ready to buy another round of tickets to see Mick and the boys do their thing.
