Best In Breed Investing

With volatility rocking the market, investors are desperate for stocks that can withstand any environment.

Following are some ‘best of breed’ names that the Fast Money traders think you should have on your radar.

Karen Finerman

I’d keep IBM, Johnson & Johnson and Kraft on the radar, says the Chairwoman. The P/E’s of all these stocks make them attractive values.

Guy Adami

If you have a long-term time line, I’d buy IBM on any dip, concurs the Negotiator.
