There is uncertainty and volatility in the market and that means investors have to know where to look to withstand the bumps in the road, expert Michael Farr said Tuesday.
With the presidential election looming, central banks weighing on the markets and investors are keeping an eye on what's happening with Deutsche Bank, there has been a shift out of yield stocks and into balance sheet names, he told CNBC's "Closing Bell."
That means cyclicals as well as consumer staples, he said.
"Look for some of those companies that haven't done as well with good, solid balance sheets. I think they're going to be the places to invest and live as you get through year-end," said Farr, president of Farr, Miller & Washington and a CNBC contributor.
Jeff deGraaf, chairman of Renaissance Macro Research, likes transportation, air freight and logistics, and some of the machinery names in this environment. That means names like Caterpillar, FedEx, UPS and General Dynamics.
He also thinks emerging markets are looking better relative to their developed counterparts.
"If you look at the emerging markets, volatility is starting to compress. They're starting to turn. They look better to us," he told "Closing Bell."
He suggests investors consider index funds that focus on the "core" emerging markets of Brazil, Russia, India and China.
And deGraaf's not concerned about the possibility of a Federal Reserve interest rate hike hammering emerging market stocks, which has historically happened.
"We think the long-term trend in rates is still down ... so even if the Fed raises rates, we think that will actually put pressure on the curve to compress and we still think that there is that downward pressure on rates," he said.
Tim Seymour, managing partner at Triogem Asset Management, believes those who are invested in the health-care sector are in good shape.
He feels the same about industrials since expectations have been so low, pointing to the recent performance of autos and airlines.
"I think it's about where valuations are and where expectations were on those underlying sectors. So stay in industrials, I think that's the place to be," Seymour told "Closing Bell."
