The rise over the past month has been steep, Stockton said, adding that the stocks could see pullbacks to their breakout points.

In the short term, the recent moves make her feel "uncomfortable" going into earnings, she said.

There is 5-8% room to retrace to the 50-day moving averages, Stockton told CNBC.

However, Alphabet and Microsoft have been "stair-stepping higher" which is bullish on a long-term basis, she added.
