Many investors today remain understandably skeptical of the market rally. They look around and see a global economy that continues to struggle to gain traction more than five years after the worst of the financial crisis.

As a result, investors may be on the look out for stocks that they can not only own to participate in any further market upside but also protect against downside when the next bear market finally arrives. While many investors are likely familiar with the well-known large cap names that fit the bill, the market also offers a select group of dark horse stocks that may also merit consideration.
