Kiplinger Logo By James Brumley, Contributing Writer, Kiplinger.com of Kiplinger | Slide 1 of 11: The past several weeks have been frustrating for investors. While an eight-day win streak for the Dow Jones Industrial Average showed we’re clearly not in the throes of a bear market, things largely still aren’t very bullish, either. We’re still in the midst of a garden-variety correction, and as many traders have been reminded, corrections are a process rather than a short-lived event.The current process might not be completed just yet. Indeed, after an incredible unfettered runup over the course of 2017, it could be weeks before the market finds a true floor and is able to rekindle its former bullishness.That doesn’t necessarily mean investors must simply ride it out with what they have. The right stocks can minimize market volatility, and maybe even drive gains at a time of year that’s lethargic, at best.Here are 10 stocks to buy now for their resiliency, dependability and stability. Some are perennial winners, others are counter-cyclical plays and still others are special-situation opportunities. In all cases, however, these shares look relatively immune to the broad market’s uncertainty.SEE ALSO: 53 Best Dividend Stocks for 2018 and Beyond
