Here's What You Should Short Ahead Of Banking Earnings This Week: CNBC's Final Trades

On CNBC’s “Halftime Report Final Trades,” Liz Young of BNY Mellon Investment Management said that iShares Core S&P Small-Cap ETF IJR is the “more profitable portion” of the small cap space.

“These stocks are trading at levels that haven’t been since the 2008-2009 crisis,” Young mentioned. These stocks now have attractive valuations and are insulated from the strong dollar, she added.

Jim Lebenthal of Cerity Partners said that Wynn Resorts, Limited’s WYNN stock had lost around 9% on the Macao shutdown. The valuation should show “zero value to Macao” and be based only on the Las Vegas and Boston operations, “which are doing better than expectations,” he further mentioned.
