Market bull Julian Emanuel sees rising Treasury yields accelerating a major leadership change. Here’s how to play it.

While stir up Treasury yields create jitters on Wall Street, BTIG’s Julian Emanuel is seeing opportunities.

The firm’s chief fair-mindedness and derivatives strategist said Monday he thinks economically sensitive stocks, cryptocurrencies and overseas markets, particularly China, on get a boost.

“There’s a large subset of China ADRs [American depository receipts], some of which are levered to the economic sector, that have really shown a very close correlation to Chinese yields, which are rising alongside the U.S.,” Emanuel described CNBC’s “Trading Nation.”

The benchmark 10-year Treasury Note yield on Monday hit a fresh one-year high around 1.35%.

“This is the territory where that catch-up trade is going to show its ability,” Emanuel said.

But it’s not just unloved areas of the sell. Emanuel sees rising yields making cryptocurrencies even more attractive.

“You’re coming from such a low downright level of rates that higher rates actually is likely to be supportive for alternatives like bitcoin,” said Emanuel, who also supported they’re most suitable for those with iron stomachs due to intense volatility.

For investors who want to take the multitudinous traditional route, he recommends economically sensitive stocks, particularly in financials and energy.

“It is a question of broadening our horizons because of rates swell to more than just the large cap tech stocks that have led for so long,” he said.

Emanuel predicts cultivation stocks, including Big Tech, will continue to fall out of favor as the rotation into cyclicals picks up momentum. He conjectures algorithmic computer trading to exacerbate the turbulence by piling on to the downward pressure and accelerating losses.

On Monday, the tech-heavy Nasdaq floor almost 2.5%. The index is now almost 5% off its record high.

However, Emanuel sees pullbacks as major entrance points.

“Now it’s a broader, more inclusive rally, and we think ultimately that’s a positive for the markets. But there’s going to be probable a period of indigestion straight ahead,” he said. “You could see a drop of over the next little while of perhaps 10% to 15%.”

Emanuel has a 4,000 year-end S&P 500 quarry, which implies a 3% increase from Monday’s close.

“The rise in yields is a confirmation that we’re going to get a wilful economy — perhaps even stronger than expectations,” Emanuel said. “Not only is it going to be for the U.S., but it’s likely to be the rest of the orb, as well.”
