The economy is not immune to the recession. It frequently adheres to the economic cycle, an irregular but largely predictable pattern. Years can often pass between expansion phases and their peak.

A period of contraction, or a recession, follows before the economy experiences a trough before the following expansion. Investors may suffer greatly during recessionary times. During the contraction phase, stock market reversals and bear markets are typical.

Some stock market segments, however, are comparatively resistant to the ups and downs of the business cycle. As a result, they provide investors with largely recession-proof stocks, which they can hold during economic turbulence. So if you're concerned that the economy is about to enter a difficult period, take a closer look at which stocks have stood their ground during previous recessions.

This blog has compiled a list of the top 5 stocks that have historically survived the recession and economic crashes.
