Aside from the Fed's possible taper announcement, economic signs are positive for stocks, Deutsche Bank Chief U.S. Equity Strategist David Bianco said Wednesday.
"I think you can have the market rally slightly, probably close up 5 points or the day, good for financials, technology, energy," he said. "Longer term, the market still has upside."
On CNBC's "Fast Money, " Bianco, who expects the S&P 500 to end the year at 1,750 and hit 1,800 early next year, said that corporate earnings would likely improve in the third and fourth quarters of 2013.

Export activity, he added, would also pick up.
Negotiations in Washington over the federal debt ceiling were not yet a concern for Bianco.
"We'll worry about this in the first days of October if no agreement's come to," he said.
Bianco said that improvement in the economic climate was happening.

"Fortunately, it's in progress," he said.
"We've seen manufacturing activity pick up, export-order activity pick up, oil prices proving their resilience as interest rates and the dollar has normalized. It's keeping energy cap ex rising, which is good.
"Industrial capital goods demand is good, even out of emerging economies for industrial capital goods. And we're starting to see signs of companies pick up their spending on corporate technologies. So, I think that'll take time to get strong, but things are moving in the right direction."

Bianco said that his top stock sector picks were cyclical areas with low price-to-earnings ratios, such as financials, energy and technology.
"I like industrials and materials, but those are the two sectors that we think are most at risk if any hiccups occur out of emerging economies over the rest of this year," he added.
