[…]Meaning it might be a good place to park your cash while awaiting a market rebound.

[…]but it could be a safe harbor to park your cash while you wait out the global economic storm.



There are no stocks that "are safe to park your cash in." Period.

Stocks are stocks and cash is cash. The stock market can take a nose dive at any time, taking your "cash" with it. Though it's true that some companies stock prices have a beta of less than one, stock prices fluctuate, sometimes erratically and unpredictably. If you must follow this kind of strategy pick a stock like General Mills.
