Do you brush your teeth and wash your hair in a recession? If yes, then buy Procter & Gamble. It’s a company that’s increased its dividend for about sixty years. It tends to do great in a recession.
In April, P&G reported market-beating results for its fiscal Q3 and raised its sales guidance for the year. The stock is down more than 10% for the year.
What else does Cramer like for a recession?
Look at what companies have historically done well in a recession and you’ll find Coca Cola. Their sales don’t go down in a recession. Beer actually goes up in a recession. So, there’s Constellation Brands that makes Modelo and Corona.
KO and STZ also reported solid quarterly results last month. Wall Street, on average, sees a more than 10% upside from here in both stocks.
