CORRECTED: American Express, Consumer Discretionary, Copart And More: CNBC's 'Final Trades'

Editor's note: A previous version of this story incorrectly suggested a sell recommendation was made for American Express. The headline has been corrected.
On CNBC’s "Halftime Report Final Trades," Shannon Saccocia of Boston Private named SPDR S&P Telecom ETF XTL, saying telecommunication services sector has done very well.

Stephanie Link of Hightower said American Express Company AXP is trading at 13 times its forward estimates and has historically traded closer to 18 times. "I like the valuation," she added.

RBC Capital analyst Jon Arfstrom recently upgraded American Express from Sector Perform to Outperform and raised the price target from $197 to $200.
