Lamar Villere, co-manager of the Villere Balanced Fund tells CNBC's "Power Lunch" on Friday large-caps overall will be in a 5-6 percent total return/year mode for the foreseeable future, but sees better opportunities in small-caps.
"Look for 'small-cap blue chips' that can succeed without International growth; generally, small-caps have better opportunity for growth [and] less currency risk than large-caps," Villere said.
He is also taking a look at energy, but is selective there.
"In energy, keep a small exposure to names with [the] best balance sheets (survivors)," Villere said.
The Russell 2000, which invests in small-caps, is higher during trading, while the energy sector is lower.
