The 19 best stocks to buy for the rest of 2019

Kiplinger Logo By James Brumley, Contributing Writer, Kiplinger.com of Kiplinger | Slide 1 of 20: The past year has been exciting, if not a little stomach-churning. A raucous 25% rally to start the year unwound a miserable last few months of 2018, but that big advance has been chopped by one-third just since the beginning of May.

Thus, when picking the best stocks to buy for the rest of 2019, you have to approach your selections with volatility – namely, avoiding it – in mind.

Maybe the year’s second act will be a little less exciting and a little more consistent for investors than the first. But with Chinese trade relations in limbo, Brexit still in the air and uncertainty about the Federal Reserve’s future plans for interest rates, calm is far from a guarantee.

To that end, here are the best stocks to buy for the rest of 2019. Not only are these stock picks a little less vulnerable to the volatility we’ve seen of late, but they each have solid backstories and/or fundamentals that should prove attractive if the hazy backdrop remains.
