There's no shortage of talking heads predicting that a recession is coming in 2023. Three stocks I'm looking at to weather the potential storm are O'Reilly Automotive (NASDAQ: ORLY), Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX), and Rent-A-Center (NASDAQ: RCII).

In the sea of streaming services, the options are nearly endless. To be clear, when we talk about Disney and streaming, we're not just talking about Disney+; the company also owns Hulu and ESPN.

Warren Buffett once said: "All there is to investing is picking good stocks at good times and staying with them as long as they remain good companies." The Nasdaq Composite has slipped into a bear market, and many stocks have fallen sharply during the downturn. For instance, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) and Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) have seen their share prices plunge 26% and 54%, respectively, marking their worst declines of the past decade.
