7 cyclical stocks that can help you play defense
A cyclical stock is a stock that produces returns influenced by macroeconomic or systematic changes in the economy at large. In strong economic times, these stocks tend to show strong growth as they are influenced by discretionary consumer spending. Of course, this means that the opposite is also true. When the economy is weak, these stocks may retreat more than other stocks.
Cyclical stocks span many sectors, but travel and entertainment stocks spring to mind. Airlines, hotels and restaurants are all examples of cyclical industries that do well in times of economic growth, but are among the first to fall back in times of recession.
