Investors expecting a turnaround in stocks this fall just had their hopes dashed. But investors who continue to stick with companies with great long-term potential can fare well.
In today’s environment, companies that play to a defensive nature – where consumers tend to spend no matter how the economy performs—offer good returns relative to today’s risks. Investing in these companies now, with share prices down, can offer moderate gains with less potential downside going forward.
One traditional place where investors can be defensive is with telecom companies. Right now, the rollout of the 5G network is creating some growth in the space on top of its usual defensive nature. And T-Mobile (TMUS) has been leading the rollout in the space.

Action to take: Investors should consider shares here, with an eye towards double-digit growth in the next year, even if the economy remains slow. At present, the company doesn’t pay a dividend.
For traders, the January 2023 $150 calls, last going for about $8.00, offer mid-double-digit return potential in the coming months, allowing traders to leverage a modest move higher in telecom shares into a big return.
