Diversification: While diversification might be a safe thing to do, Weber said this only works if you are picking sectors that do well during a bear market.
Go Dog: The Dogs of the Dow investing strategy, which involves certain high dividend-paying stocks in a given year, is one option that Weber likes.

An activist meme stock investor has reportedly taken a stake in Alibaba Group Holdings (NYSE: BABA)
Details: According to The Wall Street Journal on Monday, investor Ryan Cohen built a stake in the Chinese technology giant. He reportedly wants Alibaba to boost its share-repurchase program.
Stock Price: The past year hasn’t been kind to Alibaba. The stock is down 9% in the past 12 months and is struggling due to the larger economic challenges in China. Data released late Monday showed that fourth-quarter gross domestic product slowed.
Final Thoughts: While Cohen’s presence might make Alibaba seem like a good option for investors, China’s economy is still in a tough place. Alibaba hopes to have a rebound year in 2023.
