'Immaculate Rotation' for the Market?

While stocks aren't necessarily impervious to the Federal Reserve, there were a few areas that showed resilience amid market worries, Mike Santoli of Yahoo Finance said Wednesday.

"Obviously nothing was really immune today," he said. "They all went down."

On CNBC's "Fast Money," he noted that large cap tech stocks are not interest-rate sensitive or tied to the housing sector.

"These big, high-quality balance sheets that aren't dividend plays today, but down the road have the capacity to be returning a lot of cash to shareholders, as a general principal, I think that makes sense," he said.

Santoli's three relatively Fed-proof stocks were Google, Netflix and Cisco.

Google stock gained 6 cents to end the day at $900.68, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 206 points and the S&P 500 stumbled 22.88 points to close at 1,628.93.

Santoli said that he didn't have a time frame for how long the current situation would last.

"I don't know if we're not even close to back down to the point where I thought we would sell off from," he said.

"I don't really necessarily know if this is enduring. What I do doubt is that there's going to be another, what I call 'immaculate rotation.' Rotations, adjustments are not necessarily seamless – the baton crosses from one sector to another, and you don't have any overall index pain."

Santoli said that he hadn't expected the pop in yields, adding that the market was reacting to the possibility of "a disorderly sell-off across the fixed-income complex."
