Stocks hitting all-time highs following the Fed's decision to continue its stimulus program unabated show that there was plenty of money sitting on the sidelines, JPMorgan Chief US Equity Strategist Tom Lee said Wednesday.
"I think there were a couple of positive takeaways from today's action," he said on CNBC's "Fast Money. "
The first was that the move in the bond market spurred a change in expectations of how bonds should be valued, Lee said.
The second was that cyclical stocks rallied.
The third was that investors appeared to have been underweight equities. "I'd say that at the end of the day, it's just telling me that investors were underweight risk going into this, and now I think we're forcing people to make decisions as well."
Lee, who held a 1,775 target for the S&P 500, said that the day's moves were positive for the market.
"I actually think it still sets us up pretty constructively into year end, but of course now that we're 20 points higher, it does take away that many points from the upside," he added.
His top sector picks were technology, financials and health care.

Lee also assessed the effect of the Fed's decision to continue its $85 billion-per-month asset-purchase program on bond yields.
"If we had better growth and better employment, I think we'd all be a lot more comfortable with 3 percent," he said.
But with mixed economic data, the Fed's ongoing purchases would support confidence.
"I do think investors feel a lot more comfortable knowing that there's an accommodative Fed behind that," Lee said.
