Industrial Investment Strategy in the US

“The tide of regulation is going to be coming up against the financials,” Sorrentino told CNBC. Therefore, he suggested taking money out of financial stocks and investing in industrials as a market strategy.

“You’ve got a series of capital raises that are going to dilute shareholder equities that remains [in financials]. So for those names that we’ve had nice profits in, we’re looking to migrate away and get into more of an industrial recovery," he said.

He had the following recommendations for investors:


- Industrials

- Technology

- International

- Commodities

- Energy

- Agriculture

Moving Away From:

- Blue Chips
