The stock market is about to enter one of the strongest periods ever, Stephen Weiss of Short Hills Capital says.

The stock market is about to enter one of the strongest periods ever, Stephen Weiss of Short Hills Capital said Thursday.

"I think we're actually on the cusp on one of the strongest bull markets we've ever seen because everybody in the world – I'm talking about central bankers – is trying to make it go higher," he said.

"So, when you hit new levels, as we did recently, sure there's some nervousness, some trepidation, but to me the money's still going to come pouring into the equity market, period."

On CNBC's "Fast Money," Weiss did not appear overly concerned about a jobs report next week.

"I love the market," he said. "Sure, next week we could see an employment number that could cause it to go down."

Josh Brown of Fusion Analytics noted that moves in the bond market and utility stocks have not "infected" other sectors, adding that technology and financials have seen strength.

"This kind of rolling rotation is exactly what you want to see if you want to maintain your bullishness," he said. "That being said, I would not ignore the bond market. I would not ignore Japan. So, while we're happy to be in the market, we are not pouring on new exposure right now."

TheStreet CIO Stephanie Link pointed out that economic data supports GDP growth around 2 percent, which means continued support from Federal Reserve monetary policy.

Link acknowledged that consumer staples and utilities have "very expensive" and real-estate investment trusts were seeing declines.

"But for now, the financials, the tech, the industrials make sense," she added.
