KO, NEE, LW: These Stocks Could Hedge Your Bets against Rising Bond Yields

The U.S. Treasury yields continue to rise (the 10-year Treasury yield touched 3.51% on Monday — the highest level in over a decade), posing challenges for the equity market. Rising yields will increase the cost of capital, dragging valuations lower for stocks. Amid rising bond yields, investors could turn to low-beta stocks like Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO), NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE), and Lamb Weston Holdings (NYSE:LW) to hedge their portfolio against volatility.  These low beta stocks (beta of less than 1) remain relatively immune to large market swings, thus minimizing a portfolio’s overall risk. For instance, this year, KO, NEE, and LW stocks fared better than the S&P 500 Index (SPX).
