Markets bounced back on Wednesday, ahead of the Federal Reserve’s most recent announcement regarding monetary policy. After Monday’s crash, Wednesday’s bounce seems to be a case of “Buy the rumor, sell the news.”

After Friday’s consumer price index print, this definitely seemed to be the case, and Monday’s session more or less solidified it. Bear market territory and dead cat bounces may be more common than we think in the coming weeks or months, but there are still some stocks that will ride out this storm of market headwinds.
