Billionaire entrepreneur Mark Cuban isn’t convinced that the swift market rally is here to stay.

“I’m surprised. I think this is kind of buy the rumor and potentially we sell the news when reality sets in,” Cuban said on CNBC’s “Closing Bell” on Wednesday. “I think people are naturally optimistic right now in terms of the market. I just don’t think they are really factoring in what we are going to see on the other side.”

Cuban, owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, revealed that he hasn’t bought any stocks in two weeks and is “trying to get more cash.”

The market bounced sharply in the past week, with the S&P 500 jumping 25{3c4481f38fc19dde56b7b1f4329b509c88239ba5565146922180ec5012de023f} from its 52- week low of 2191.86 in March 23. Investors are betting on a turnaround ahead for the coronavirus crisis as cases in some of the hardest-hit regions began to show signs of slowing.

Cuban added he’s sticking with his core holdings of Netflix and Amazon.
