Guggenheim Partners Global CIO Scott Minerd continued to sound the alarm about the stock market on Thursday, telling CNBC that the recent selloff could be just the start of a roughly 50% decline. 

"The recent highs have been a selling opportunity, and I think we're going to have a tough slog here, especially with the increasing number of Covid cases that are coming up as a result of the reopening," he said on "Closing Bell."
