Benjamin Halliburton acknowledges a global slowdown, but he doesn't think it will lead to a "bust" in the infrastructure build-out.
"When you look at the long-term trends in infrastructure, they're still going to be up," Tradition Capital Management's chief investment officer told CNBC.
That leads him to recommend Foster Wheeler.
"There's still these huge power projects that are going to take place," he explained. "Foster Wheeler should earn at least four dollars next year, and they're going to continue to have backlog growth into '09."
Other recession-resistant stocks he likes include Vodafone Group and drugmaker Schering Plough.
