NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- With the European debt crisis falling back into focus, investor fears that were put on the backburner during October have witnessed a comeback. Investing in this type of choppy market environment will require patience and flexibility.For conservative investors, it may be tempting to flee from risky assets and ride out the market storms in shelter. While long-term U.S. treasuries and cash may provide some welcomed comfort during periods of market duress, such a strategy will keep an investor from potential gains in the event of a turnaround. Rather than let market headwinds deter investors from taking on equity exposure, dividend-paying stocks will likely be better way to navigate the market's volatility.
