These are tense times for investors. As of this writing, U.S. stocks are down about 9% for the year to date. While some sectors have suffered more than others, the sell-off has left few parts of the market unscathed.

We asked our readers what investment besides cash and cash equivalents has been their "rock" during the sell-off. Many readers replied that no single holding is their rock; rather, it's a well-diversified portfolio that allows them to relax during periods of market stress. Nevertheless, many others noted that they do, in fact, have particular holdings providing respite today.
