“[The markets are] going to be better,” Genter told CNBC.

“We’re fairly valued, we have not come too far too fast…and I think we’re going to see about 3 percent GDP growth.”

Genter said health care is a sector that he particularly likes.

“If we get passage of any [health care] bill, we’re going to have a relief rally from these values,” he said.

In the meantime, Stahler recommended that investors take some chips off the table and rediversify.

“I like technology that’s globally integrated and I think we’ve got emerging markets that are going to start diversifying into technology and to some production,” he said. “And I like commercial real estate.”

“We have about a 2.5-year window to take advantage on these depressed prices,” said Stahler. “If we do that, we’re buying ahead of the inflation curve, we’re buying a nice yield, a nice discount and we’re cherry-picking at this point.”
