The Dow is down about 4 percent since last Thursday, when the Fed left interest rates unchanged.

"We still think it is too early to buy into industrial and commodity names with big overseas exposure, as well as energy stocks," Auth said.

He believes oil will remain under pressure due to continued oversupply and weak demand, but things may improve soon. "We think energy is getting close to curing itself, as U.S. supply is being cut back, and the global economy re-accelerates next year," Auth said.

Industrials and energy are lower during trading, but West Texas Intermediate and Brent crude are higher.
