UBS Wealth Management managing director Robert Sechan explained why emerging markets is a key part of his playbook for the rest of the year.

Lebenthal Asset Management CEO Jim Lebenthal said investors should pay attention to the brick and mortars moving into the end of 2016.

Short Hills Capital CIO Stephen Weiss feels longer duration investments are the best play and is particularly bullish on one stock.
"I really like Orbital ATK (OA) they had an accounting issue, a small one, but they keep saying they're going to file. Once they get up to speed with their filing in October that stock will go back up to $90," he noted.
