3 Sectors to Buy on Dips: Tom Lee

A constellation of factors suggest that investors should wait to invest fresh money in the stock market, JPMorgan Chief U.S. Equity Strategist Tom Lee said Thursday.

On CNBC's "Fast Money," Lee noted a number of potential headwinds in the unknown effects of increasing payroll taxes, "fear-mongering" around sequestration, higher gasoline prices and credit, which "has been acting in a mixed fashion the last couple of weeks."

"So we're starting to feel as if equities are the last man standing," he added.

Lee said that "a cluster of contrarian signals" noted a slowdown.

"We got that level last week," he said.

Still, Lee remained bullish long-term on the stock market.

Specifically, the sectors with potential to gain were materials, industrials and discretionary.

"I think you still want to overweight equities all year, buy the cyclicals on dips, focus on high quality," he said. "But if you have fresh dollars to put to work and you could put them at 1,515 or 1,450, I'd rather wait to 1,450."
