Stocks struggled for gains Friday, a day after the S&P 500 had a record close, but some investment pros believe the market is heading higher.
Kenny Polcari, director at O'Neil Securities, told CNBC's "Power Lunch" it was a little disappointing that there was no follow-through on Thursday's rally. However, he expects stocks to break out next week.
The market is "playing games with your head. It's trying to make you think it's going to back off and then when everyone expects it to back off, it's going to do exactly the opposite and move forward," the veteran trader and CNBC contributor said.
While strategist Jeff Kleintop thinks valuations are slightly above average, he also expects the market to head higher thanks to corporate activity.
"The same buyer is still in the market that has been driving stocks higher for five or six years now. That's the corporations," said the chief global strategist at Charles Schwab, which has $2.55 trillion in assets under management.
