Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald explains how inverse funds, oil and other commodities, dividend-paying securities and “sin stocks” should be part of any well-crafted “defensive-investing” strategy.]

Prussian military theorist Carl von Clausewitz once said that “the best defense is a good offense.” Although that bit of wisdom has been used everywhere from the battlefield to the gridiron, it could just as easily be deployed as part of a “defensive investing” strategy.

And in today’s markets – whipsawed by worries emanating from virtually every major market around the globe – a defensive-investing plan needs to include protective stops, inverse funds, high-yielding dividend shares, “sin stocks, and investments in oil and other value-storing commodities,” Keith Fitz-Gerald, the best-selling author who is Money Morning’s chief investment strategist, said in an interview this week.

With the world markets in flux, Fitz-Gerald sat down with Money Morning Executive Editor William Patalon III to talk about defensive-investing strategies. What follows is the full text of that interview.
