Markets to Chase All-Time Highs This Year: Stock Picker

Wednesday, 13 Apr 2011 | 11:20 AM ET

The stock market is going to chase its all time highs this year and next, according to Ted Parrish, co-portfolio manager at Henssler Equity Fund.

Large-Cap Picks
Channing Smith, Capital Advisors, and Tetd Parrish, Henssler Equity, offer their large-cap stock choices.

“The earnings cycle is moderate, but we’re still going to get growth,” Parrish told CNBC. (Scroll down to see his full picks.)

In the meantime, Channing Smith, vice president and co-manager of Capital Advisors, said equity gains are going to be “more tempered” going into the second half of the year.

“We expect rising interest rates—the Fed is going to step away from QE [quantitative easing] on June 30th and someone’s going to have to fill the void there,” said Smith.

“And with corporate profit margins at the highest levels we’ve seen in years—with rising commodity prices and central banks around the world increasing their rates—we expect margins to come off somewhat, so we’re taking a defensive stand.”

Smith’s Picks:

Johnson & Johnson

Ford

BlackRock

Parrish’s Picks:

Chevron

Kimberly-Clark

Cisco
