Buy these 3 recession-resistant stocks with the US economy set to contract, says a strategy director who called the inflation threat back in November

  • Brad Neuman, a strategy director at Alger, said last fall that inflation would stay hot.
  • Now, the market veteran believes that a recession is more likely than not as growth slows.
  • Here are three top growth stocks to buy as the US economy enters a recession.

For the second time in seven months, Brad Neuman, the director of market strategy at asset management firm Alger, has made a decisive call at a pivotal time for the economy.

In mid-November the two-decade market veteran predicted that inflation would persist longer than anticipated and “could be taking on a new role in the economy.” That stance gained traction as inflation readings came in hotter than expected over the following months, but it still wasn’t the consensus view until recently.

Neuman’s newest position is that a recession is more likely than not as inflation remains high and financial conditions tighten. Market experts are increasingly subscribing to that view as economic momentum slows, though there are still plenty of pundits who are optimistic.

History suggests that there will be a recession , Neuman told Insider in a recent interview. The economy has shrunk in eight of the past 11 times that the Federal Reserve has hiked interest rates, Neuman noted, and the three exceptions occurred when the economy was stronger, with both lower inflation and higher rates than in today’s environment.

That precedent, plus the fact that there’s more room for manufacturing and consumer indicators to drop, means that the near-term path for stocks is probably lower, the strategy director said.

“We don’t have the signals for any of those economic or sentiment bottoms, so I look for continued economic weakness and softness in the stock market,” Neuman told Insider.
