"You are looking for sustainable cash flow and secure balance sheets," Lofthouse said.

Two stocks Lofthouse likes right now are Philip Morris and Six Flags. He believes many people underestimate the value of Six Flags.

"A family with kids will still go out to theme parks. In a world with not much inflation, Six Flags has pricing power," Lofthouse said.

Philip Morris and Six Flags are both up 10 percent over the past year.
