Ben Rains dives into the volatile week on the stock market that has more investors worried that Jay Powell and the Fed will raise rates at a higher clip in March. Both the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq are now trading below their 50-day and 200-day moving averages, and stocks had tumbled through mid-afternoon trading Friday as investors grow spooked by the Silicon Valley Bank failure. 

Despite the worries, there are always stocks poised to thrive amid economic and market uncertainty. Today we dive into why investors looking for long-term growth, dividends, and value might want to turn to Analog Devices (ADI) and Halliburton (HAL).
