Have $1,000? 2 Smart Stocks to Buy in a Nasdaq Bear Market

Have $1,000? 2 Smart Stocks to Buy in a Nasdaq Bear Market

With the Nasdaq Composite still firmly entrenched in bear market territory, if you're feeling discouraged about the state of your portfolio and the performance of some of your favorite stocks, you're certainly not alone. Two stocks that in my view belong firmly in the former category are DexCom (NASDAQ: DXCM) and Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG). If you're searching for a non-cyclical company with products that are consistently in demand, regardless of the macro environment or consumer sentiment, DexCom could be a no-brainer contender for your portfolio.
