Buy Deep Blue Blue-Chips
When the investment environment is shaky and doubt rules the day, focusing on companies that have history on their side will restore confidence. These companies should be the bluest of blue-chips, and be able to weather any upcoming storms. While no company is immune to disaster (think BP), true blue-chips will have solid cash, very manageable debt, and sufficient earnings strength to cover their dividends and maintain value.
