Pros: Where to Go For Correction Protection

Thursday, 18 Aug 2011 | 6:11 PM ET

Amid violent swings in the market and volatility again pushing higher, where can you find correction protection?

Don't fret, the Fast Money gang has a slew of ideas for you.

Joe Terranova:

He would go back to investment-grade corporate bonds. “It’s a great place to hide out right now,” Terranova said. "Corporations have strong balance sheets and earnings are solid."

Correction Protection
A look at what is happening in the markets, with the Fast Money team.

Karen Finerman:

She likes Altria Group and Philip Morris International because both have decent yields. “It's bad for you but smoking is good for your portfolio.”

Guy Adami:

Adami has his eye on Church & Dwight. “If you want to be in a stock, I think CHD is telling you it still wants to go higher.”

Brian Kelly:

The bull market right now is in safe assets, Kelly said. So he suggests looking at the LQD, an ETF made up of bonds issued by corporations, and picking names from it. However, Kelly did have a word of caution; the LQD also has some exposure to foreign banks such as UBS and Credit Suisse.
