"At an asset class level, the inflation theme does not only favor an overweight in commodities and equities, but also an underweight in credit."&nbsp;</p><p>They added that value stocks and value-oriented sectors should continue to outperform, while tech stocks may lag if rates rise.&nbsp;</p><p>Rising inflation has been a central concern on Wall Street as the economy rebounds out of the pandemic.

"Despite peaking in some activity indicators, the market is likely to get comfortable that growth will remain significantly above trend in 2H, supported by both consumer and capex. Regionally, our strategists expect the outperformance of Eurozone, Japan and EM, while they are underweight US and UK stocks."&nbsp;</p><p><br><br></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><a href="https://markets.businessinsider.com/news/stocks/stock-market-outlook-inflation-risk-underpriced-jpmorgan-kolanovic-cyclical-hedge-2021-6-1030504884#comments">Join the conversation about this story &#187;</a></p> <p>NOW WATCH: <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/red-wine-good-heart-health-benefits-healthy-cardiologist-2019-4">How heart disease created America's wine industry</a></p>
