Stocks That Last For All Seasons: Analyst

Are there stocks for all seasons no matter what the condition of the economy? Manuel Schiffres, executive editor of Kiplinger's Personal Finance thinks so and gave his recommendations to CNBC Tuesday.

"These are stocks that are all cyclical, meaning they did well in the crisis and will do now," said Schiffres. "They've managed to grow earnings and revenue during the recession and we expect them to do so in a recovery."
