Slo-o-o-w Money: Hot Stock in Cold Market

Stocks tumbled again Wednesday, and the S&P 500 hit a new low for the year as the latest data triggered more pessimism about the economic outlook.

With so much uncertainty in the market, investors are desperate for stocks that will perform in the face of so many negative catalysts.

So what is the best way to find shelter in this economic storm?

Fast trader Patty Edwards said her favorite slow money play is Philip Morris International .

“It’s 100 percent international sales,” she said. “You are really playing on the emerging markets.”

She also likes its 3.7 percent yield, adding “It’s up about 21 percent year-to-date and I expect that to continue.”
