Now is a buying opportunity for investors with six- to 12-month time horizons, said Peter Oppenheimer, Goldman Sachs’ chief global equity strategist.

The remarks come after a massive rout in the stock market that saw the S&P 500 hit the lowest level in more than a year on Monday as markets contend with the Federal Reserve raising rates to cool off the economy while simultaneously trying to avoid a recession.
