12 Fundamentally Sound Stocks Fit For a Bear Market

When the market gets rough and you are investing for the long haul searching for strong companies that can outlast the market turmoil is essential.

So I conducted a search for stocks with the following criteria: strong earnings per share (EPS), good institutional accumulation and current sponsorship (meaning well performing funds are currently holding the stock), and debt less then 25%. All stocks had to have a market capitilization of atleast $200 million as well.

The result? 12 fundamentally fit stocks that could be a great fit for any long term portfolio. (Note: stocks in alphabetical order via ticker symbol and one year stock charts are included for each.)
