Deutsche Bank's research team is out with its strategy for the months ahead, highlighting its favorite picks right now.

"We advise sticking with 2015 leadership into 2016 (and) prefer consumer-oriented tech stocks and health care," Deutsche Bank's chief U.S. equity strategist, David Bianco, wrote last week.

The investment firm also advised clients to tilt toward growth over value, with large-cap names in the health-care and tech spaces "preferred" over energy, industrials and small caps.

As the yield curve flattens and the Fed prepares to hike interest rates, Bianco believes large banks are poised to benefit, while dividend-yield seekers should also focus on large tech and banks. Utilities also present opportunities, the strategist said.

Here are the stocks most loved by Deutsche Bank's analysts.
