CNBC’s “Halftime Report Final Trades,” highlighted Stephen Weiss of Short Hills Capital Partners naming TransDigm Group Incorporated (TDG) as his final trade.

TransDigm Group’s recent acquisition of the Electron Device Business of Communications & Power Industries for about $1.385 billion in cash caught the attention of many investors.

Joseph Terranova of Virtus Investment Partners expressed his positive outlook on Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (GS).

Barclays analyst Jason Goldberg’s recent rating and price target hike for Goldman Sachs added fuel to the fire of investor interest.

Joshua Brown of Ritholtz Wealth Management mentioned the positive performance of PayPal Holdings, Inc. (PYPL) in Tuesday’s session.
