Industrials and technology names have farther to climb amid a market in fear of tapering, Scott Migliori of Allianz says.

Industrials and technology names have farther to climb in a market that fears tapering, Scott Migliori of Allianz Global Investors U.S. CIO Scott Migliori said Friday.

"I think the whole tapering discussion is a red herring," he said, adding that the market should be focused more on corporate earnings than murmurs that the Federal Reserve would cut back on its asset purchases.

Migliori added that a slowdown in emerging markets could have a larger impact on the market than the Fed, as well.

On CNBC's "Fast Money," Migliori said that investors are banking on a second-half recovery in Asia, which means the sectors to buy are industrials and technology.

Precision Castparts, he added was a play on the aerospace cycle.

"I do think you have to be selective in industrials," he said.

In the tech space, Migliori said that he liked Microsoft, seeing it as a company that could grow "10 percent-plus."
