The dollar has risen about 10 percent and 3 percent against the euro and yen, respectively, this year.

Japan's Nikkei has climbed about 18 percent this year. The STOXX 600 ETF, which tracks a broad range of European stocks, has jumped more than 16 percent this year.

European fundamentals are "driving upwards," added Ben Mandel, a global strategist at JPMorgan. He sees Europe as a strong investing play especially as it receives a tailwind from a "relatively weak euro."
