'Halftime Report' Traders Share Their Thoughts On Medical Properties Trust, Clean Energy Fuels Corp And More

On CNBC's "Fast Money Halftime Report," Jenny Harrington advised a viewer to buy Medical Properties Trust, Inc. MPW for a long term. She bought it because it has consistently grown earnings in the 8% range. It has also grown the dividend by 3.5%.

Stephen Weiss said Vuzix Corp VUZI and Jumia Technologies AG JMIA are highly speculative. He still has positive returns in these names, but he has cut back. Weiss sees a very, very bright long-term future for Vuzix And Jumia, but they're not the right stocks for this market.

Jon Najarian would hold Clean Energy Fuels Corp CLNE. He likes it after the big sell-off.

Rob Sechan said the underperformance in iShares Russell 2000 Value ETF IWN is going to persist for a little bit. He would wait a bit before buying and he prefers the large-cap stocks.
