CNBC's Final Trades: Corteva, Raytheon Technologies, Encore Capital, And This Health Care Play


On CNBC’s “Halftime Report Final Trades,” Stephanie Link of Hightower chose Corteva Inc CTVA, saying that she likes the agriscience cycle. “They have pricing power. They also have a cost-cutting program,” Link mentioned. “So, I think margins have a lot of upside from here,” she added.

Liz Young of BNY Mellon Investment Management advised to “hideout” in the Health Care Select Sector SPDR Fund XLV “during this chap, even after the summer rally [it's] still trading below the index.”

“It’s a good place to be for both group and defense in a large cap space,” she added.
