4 Stocks Picks For The Market's Next Storm

Despite the S&P 500's massive rally this year, fund manager Steve Romick warns that soaring levels of sovereign and corporate debt to new highs could inflict major turmoil on the stock market. Romick has good cause to be worried. As head of the $17 billion FPA Crescent fund (FPACX), he is 70% invested in stocks. To protect against a stock meltdown, Romick is buying equities with a five to seven-year investment horizon, which he argues will outperform, including American International Group (AIG), Jefferies Financial Group (JEF), Charter Communications (CHTR) and Comcast Corp. (CMCSA), per a lengthy interview he gave to Barron’s.
