“In addition to the consumer confidence numbers, we had in April leading economic indicators up 1 percent and the cash markets have been thawing in the last few months, so I agree that things are getting better and the economy is stabilizing,” Koesterich told CNBC.

Recommendations:

- Energy

- Commodity producing countries like Canada and Brazil — rather than the U.S.
