Stifel’s Barry Bannister says there is “room for upside” after two straight days of gains.

Barry Bannister, chief equity strategist at Stifel, said stocks could advance further after a sharp two-day rally this week.

“I don’t think you should worry about a recession until the second half of ’23,” Barry Bannister, chief equity strategist at Stifel, said Tuesday on CNBC’s “Closing Bell: Overtime.” “So there is room for a gathering as we enter the first part of next year.”

The strategist said there could be a “conditional pause” at the December meeting as the Federal Reserve reviews the impact of a rate hike plan on inflation.

“The main indicators of inflation are all declining and global liquidity is a bit tight. They don’t want to kill the patient to cure the disease,” Bannister said. “And if the data keeps going its way, the pauses will continue, and if the data doesn’t go its way, they will go up again and we will go back down.”
