Scrambling for strategies? Top money pro Charles Kantor suggests betting on the good ol’ USA!

Kantor, who is managing director for Neuberger Berman, tells CNBC’s Fast Money that if you have a longer-term time horizon, the best place to park your money is right here at home, in risk assets or stocks.

“Fundamentally I think stocks are cheap – I think investors are mispricing risk,” he says. “We think the market is pricing in 1% future earnings growth. However, on average in any 10-year cycle the S&P delivers 4-6%,” he says

“Bet on American ingenuity, management talent and global focus,” he says.
