Prep For Recovery With These 5 Stocks: Strategist

Take your cash out from the sidelines because "there’s still a lot of stocks we can put money into today," said Robert Millen, co-portfolio manager at Jensen Portfolio.

“We’re not afraid of the run-up in growth stocks,” Millen told CNBC. “[We like] companies that have consistent growth, high quality balance sheets and good prospects for growing even in a slow-growth economy.” (Read below for his stock picks.)

In addition to growth stocks, Millen said he also likes the cyclicals.

“We have some exposure to cyclicals in what we call a “quality global industrials” for example, United Technologies and Emerson . These are more consistent cyclicals that we think will do well not only in the early stages, but more importantly in the later stages of a recovery, and I think most people projecting that this recovery is going to be slow, long and characterized by sub-par GDP growth.”

Millen said the market is ahead of itself and expects some volatility ahead.

“But the general trend over the next several years is up,” he said.
