Tuesday's Big Bounce: Analysts Upgrade or Downgrade Etsy, Keurig Dr Pepper and More

Markets bounced back on Tuesday, after one of the worst trading weeks since the onset of the pandemic. The Nasdaq was leading the charge higher with over a 3% gain on the day, while the S&P 500 and Dow Jones industrials were up 2.7% and 2.0%, respectively.

Last week, the Federal Reserve raised interest rates by a historic 75 basis points, an increase not seen since the mid-1990s. This was all in an effort to tamp down on inflation, which has been rising at levels not seen in the past four decades.

Given that markets are bouncing back to start out this truncated trading week, there are still more questions of whether the pain is over for investors—and then if markets are done falling.

In a market that is very volatile, and that could be headed much lower if we are already in a recession, seven safe-haven stocks make a ton of sense now. With even moderate appreciation in the share prices of the top companies, investors should be looking at double-digit total return potential.
