How investors can deal with Swiss shock: Analysts

The Swiss National Bank's sudden shift in monetary policy on Thursday has injected volatility into the market and undermines investors' confidence in central banks, analysts told CNBC on Friday.

"I think you have this lack of confidence in the marketplace when you see these extreme types of moves and decisions out of central banks, I think it's all about confidence," said Dan Heckman, senior fixed income strategist at U.S. Bank, in a "Squawk on the Street" interview.

While many analysts view the sudden move as adding to market volatility, Burns McKinney, portfolio manager at NFJ investment group, feels that dividend-paying stocks can be used as a means to moderate unpredictability.

"At NFJ we focus on dividend-paying stocks, and that's probably one of the best ways to soften that volatility."

Volatility continued to run rampant as foreign exchange broker Alpari UK announced plans to entering insolvency and U.S. retail foreign exchange broker FXCM saw its stock drop nearly 90 percent in pre-market trading Friday, with a negative equity balance of about $225 million. It took a $300 million bailout later in the day.

"I think they definitely lost a lot of investor trust by the recent moves," said McKinney, referring to the central bank.
