“I think we’ve had a go-go recovery in the marketplace and you’ve seen a lot of low quality deep cyclical names that have been bouncing,” Piskorowski told CNBC.

The sector that has been neglected is the high-quality dividend stocks, he said.

“In this kind of market, individual investors might not be super comfortable with equities, but you can take a look at dividend growth names as a way to make total return, in order to make back for the losses over the last few years,” he said.
