Wall Street analysts say there are still plenty of opportunities to invest in quality stocks despite a trade war that feels never ending to many investors.

CNBC looked through recent Wall Street research to find stocks that analysts like amidst the U.S.-China trade war.
Since trade tensions ratcheted up Aug. 1, the S&P 500 is down more than 3%. Despite that, analysts say there’s no shortage of ways to play the pullback.

Data & full up to day insights:


Solar panel manufacturer SolarEdge Technologies is one company that’s not seeing a tariff disruption, according to analysts at JMP Securities.

“They shifted production to Eastern Europe a while ago,” analyst Joseph Osha told CNBC.

“SEDG’s efforts to shift away from China supply for the U.S. market appear to be working out,” Osha also said in a recent note.

The firm has an outperform rating on the stock while shares of the company are up 25% this month.

Maximus is a company that provides business outsourcing services to governments around the globe.

According to analysts at Raymond James, the company has a lack of China exposure and actually benefits during a global growth slowdown.

“Couple this with the fact that MMS is idiosyncratic to the macro, with immaterial tariff exposure, no China exposure, and a model focused on social programs that typically thrive as global growth recedes makes for a very intriguing story,” they said.

The stock is up 3% over the last month.

Content delivery network provider Akamai Technologies was recently named a “top recession” pick by analysts at Piper Jaffray.

The firm likes the company’s lack of China exposure. “The underlying market dynamics, especially due to over-the-top delivery, online gaming, and cloud security, will help Akamai’s business hold up better than most in a downturn,” the analyst said.
