Stocks Near ‘Hot-Stove Territory’: Brown

As the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average continue to post gains, a few headwinds could turn things around, Josh Brown of Fusion Analytics said Tuesday on CNBC.

"We're kinda gitting into hot-stove territory here," he said on "Fast Money."

Brown said that expectations were now catching up to the price action, which leaves little wiggle room for any disappointing news.

"While I'm constructive, I wouldn't be putting on any new positions," he added.

Midday, the Dow was 65 points from 14,000, or 0.43 percent away, and less than 1.6 percent from its all-time closing high of 14,164.53.

But the good news might not last.

Joe Terranova of Virtus Investment Partners reiterated the effect of what he expected to be disappointing news from the Labor Department.

"I still go back to what goes back to what happens Friday with the jobs report," he said.
