Grasso: Beware Stocks' Kryptonite Level
With stocks near five-year highs, it's a good time to be a seller, Stuart Frankel's Steve Grasso says.

With stocks near five-year highs, it's a good time to be a seller, Stuart Frankel's Steve Grasso said Monday on CNBC.

"A whole potpourri" of concerns, including lingering "fiscal cliff" issues, negotiations on the federal debt ceiling and the question of corporate earnings put the S&P 500, which closed at 1,461, at a "kryptonite level," he said on "Fast Money."

"I'd rather be a seller at this point," he said.

Grasso added he would wait until stocks crossed the 1,465 level, which would signal the possibility of a run toward 1,500.

"Preferably, I'd rather wait until 1,475," he added.
