What to Own During Rate Hikes

CNBC recently have an article regarding what stocks should investors own if the Fed decides to raise interest rates.
We figured it would be good to reproduce the piece here for our readers' reference.

Below is the link to the original article

Investment Play when Interest Rates go Up

Majority business dealings in the US will benefit
Strong Balance Sheet companies tend to outperform in the first 3 months of a rate hike
High Return on Capital companies tend to outperform their lower quality counterparts
Low Volatility Stocks tend to outperform their higher volatility counterparts

Multinationals with lots of debts do far worse
