The "Halftime Report" traders delivered their trades for the second half of the day as the fourth-quarter kicks off.
Steve Weiss: I'm watching hedge fund performance heading into the fourth-quarter. Some of them have been beating the markets and I think hedge fund performance will continue.
Joe Terranova: I would be very deliberate in acting in the markets right now with the jobs report tomorrow and a looming hurricane. I would be very patient and give it some time over the next couple of days before doing anything.
Jon Najarian: I'm holding Salesforce based on heavy call option activity we've seen. I'm going to hold the options on this name into the end of the day.
Pete Najarian: I'm watching FireEye. Lots of call buying today, watching to see if it can break above the $32 and hold above that.
