Stocks To Keep the Bear Market at Bay

The markets are surely in for more tumultuous days as the European sovereign debt crisis comes to a head and the U.S. economy struggles through its current malaise. But that doesn't mean investors have to give up the ship and jump in the bond-market lifeboats only to then have to fret about the prospect of inflation draining their returns.

That's because there are always a few defensive-stock stalwarts to hide in so as not to miss out on an unexpected market rebound, as so frequently happens after a market selloff. In light of that, a Morningstar analyst identified about a dozen of the ratings firm's highest-ranked mutual funds that have consistently beaten their peers during previous downturns. I then cherry-picked those funds to identify some of the stocks that appear most frequently among their top holdings, excluding iPhone and iPad maker Apple(AAPL_), given that it's a top holding of virtually every large mutual funds these days.
