Things to Invest in When a Recession Hits

When the market is soaring, it’s easy to forget that what goes up can also come down. But economic slowdowns tend to be cyclical, which means that another recession is in the future. Whether it’s fast-approaching or still a ways off, it’s wise to be prepared for its eventuality. This way, you won’t join the panicking stampede out of stocks and into cash. Instead, you’ll remember that stocks can perform even during a recession – you just need to know which ones.

Core Sector Stocks

During a recession, you might be inclined to give up on stocks, but experts say it’s best not to flee equities completely. When the rest of the economy is on shaky ground, there are often a handful of sectors that continue to forge ahead and provide investors with steady returns.

So if you want to insulate yourself during a recession partly with stocks, consider investing in the healthcare, utilities and consumer goods sectors. People are still going to spend money on medical care, household items, electricity and food, regardless of the state of the economy. As a result, these stocks tend to do well during busts (and underperform during booms).

Real Estate

The 2008 housing market collapse was a nightmare for homeowners, but it turned out to be a boon for some real estate investors. When a recession hits and home values drop, it may be a buying opportunity for investment properties. If you can rent out the property to a reliable tenant, you’ll have a steady stream of income while you ride out the recession. Once real estate values start to rise again, you can sell at a profit.

Precious Metals

Precious metals like gold or silver tend to perform well during market slowdowns. But since the demand for these kinds of commodities often increases during recessions, their prices usually go up, too.

Invest in Yourself

If you’re laid off during a recession, you can rebound by investing in yourself. You could go back to school to gain additional knowledge or skills that could help you get a better job.
