Popular biotechs like Vertex (VRTX) are off by double-digits. Tech mainstay Amazon (AMZN) is down about 30%. And recent cult stocks Twitter (TWTR) and 3D Systems (DDD) have been cut in half this year. Of course, it’s not all gloomy. The broader market indexes have slowly plodded about 1% higher in the face of these troubles. And some stocks have pushed even higher.

What are those picks? Surprisingly, they are some of the sleepiest names on Wall Street — defensive blue-chip dividend payers that were largely overlooked during the market’s roaring run of 2013. And as the market gets more selective and investors increasingly move “risk off,” these picks could continue to do very well across the rest of 2014. Here they are: Ventas (VTR), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) and Intel (INTC).
