10 Blue Chips With Cash Cushions for a Crisis

Big war chests make these stocks the definition of stable

Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT)Cash and Investments: $87.8 billion
Annual Operating Cash Flow: $31.6 billion
Revenue Per Employee: $828,000

Microsoft (MSFT) may not be the tech giant it once was, particularly after poor earnings lately that included a $900 million writedown related to the unimpressive launch of its Surface tablet line.

But don’t fool yourself into thinking MSFT is going anywhere, post-PC pressures or not. The company has a massive war chest and robust cash flow that will keep it in investors’ good graces no matter what happens in the short-term.

The 2.9% dividend doesn’t hurt, either.
