“You try to marry the top-down and bottoms-up and hopefully that gets you to a portfolio that outperforms,” Rendino told CNBC.

Rendino said he is underweight the financial sector because it is going to be more regulated. He expects the information technology sector to see higher growth.

“This is one area that there’s going to be increased capital expenditures this year from businesses, and because of that, we think it’s going to be a good year for information technology,” he said.

“You’re going to have enterprise spending increase all year: Windows 7, data tsunami with everything converging on wireless, video, voice and everything converging on our BlackBerries and iPhones,” he explained.
