Bear market stocks are the ones that perform well, even during bearish market times when stock prices are falling. Bear markets are the market situations when stock prices are plummeting, investor sentiments are negative, and there is a high inclination towards selling stocks rather than buying.
Despite the negative pressures of selling, bear market stocks tend to hold steady ground and survive well in the bearish times. They are considered risky and contrarian investments; however, bear market stocks can generate substantial returns if chosen wisely. They belong to companies with solid foundations that can weather economic storms efficiently.
