S&P 500 Could See 1,700 in 2013: Pro

With broad participation in the stock rally, the market could keep climbing, says JC Parets of Eagle Bay Capital.

With broad participation in the stock rally, the market could keep climbing, JC Parets of Eagle Bay Capital said Tuesday.

The S&P 500 hitting a record high and closing at 1,625.96 for the day, which makes the bull case for stocks continuing toward 1,636 and then to 1,660, he said.

"We don't really see any reason why, if the sentiment remains this bearish, why we can't see 1,700 this year," he said, citing the contrarian indicator.

On CNBC's "Fast Money," Parets noted that the materials, industrials and technology sectors have been underperforming.

"We definitely want to see rotation into some of these underperforming areas if the S&P 500 is going to continue higher," he said. "I think we need participation from the other guys."

Parets also highlighted the percentage of stocks above their 200-day moving average, which he put at 91.6 percent.

"If the entire market is participating and 90 percent of stocks are rallying and are in uptrends, then in all likelihood the market is going to continue higher," he said. "It's very difficult if not impossible for the market to decline if 90 percent of the stocks are in uptrends."
