Brace For a Market Pullback Soon: S&P's Stovall

Wednesday, 10 Jun 2009 | 9:49 AM ET

We’re likely going to get a market correction, said Rob Morgan, market strategist at Clermont Wealth Strategies, and Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at Standard & Poor’s.

“The average is about a 15 percent pullback, which would bring us back to 800 to 825 [on the S&P 500] before I can breathe a sigh of relief and believe we’re headed higher again,” Stovall told CNBC.

Second Opinion:

Stovall said he prefers stocks over bonds, small caps over large caps and cyclicals over the defensive areas.

Morgan said he also expects a market pullback and prefers stocks to bonds.
