London, UK, 4th March 2022, ZEXPRWIRE, The global economy is expected to continue growing, but not at a boom rate. “As we move past peak momentum and into the less accommodative territory,” says State Street Global Advisors in their 2022 outlook statement released earlier this year (2021), “the recovery that follows will likely be uneven.”
The broker from WinGroup says the COVID omicron variant has really highlighted how fragile our current state of progress might be. As such, some experts are now recommending more defensive and durable names as their best stocks for 2022 (in light of the recent events).
One such expert is Jim Cramer, who says that investors should focus on companies with strong balance sheets and little debt. “In a world where there are so many uncertainties, it’s more important than ever to own stocks of companies with fortress-like balance sheets,” he said on CNBC’s Mad Money.
Other experts are also bullish on defensive stocks for the coming year. For example, Goldman Sachs recently upgraded its ratings for a number of utility companies, citing their stable outlooks and attractive valuations.
So what does all this mean for investors? It means that there are a number of different strategies that can be employed in order to make money in the stock market in 2022. While some people may still choose to invest in growth stocks, others may find more success in investing in defensive names. It all comes down to what an individual investor is comfortable with.
