In this environment, it might be good to have some stability in our portfolios. After all, volatility has started to rise and the chance of a recession has only increased.

It’s getting dicey out there. And the recent swoons in the market have reinforced the fact that stocks don’t always just go straight up. The question remains, however, how do you get that stability?
