  • There are "elite" companies that have gone years without experiencing a 20% bear market decline, Ned Davis Research says.
  • The firm compiled the S&P 500 companies that have gone the longest without a bear market.
  • Blue chip companies like PepsiCo, McDonald's, and Waste Management top the list.

Resilience in the stock market is a valuable trait for companies as investors seek out relative safety during bear market declines.

Some companies are in "elite" status for not experiencing a 20% decline in years, even when considering the 2022 bear market in which the S&P 500 declined by about 25%, according to a recent note from Ned Davis Research.

Ned Davis Research compiled the S&P 500 companies that have gone the longest without suffering a bear market, with some approaching 1,000 trading days, or about four years.

These are the 10 companies that haven't experienced a bear market decline in many years.
