CNBC "Halftime Report" trader Jim Lebenthal believes shares of two tech stocks are poised to move higher once they announce earnings next week.

In what he sees as a near-term opportunity, the money manager bought shares of Qorvo for his model portfolio and in real life as a derivative play off of Apple's earnings, which are being released after Tuesday's closing bell.

In the past week, Qorvo, a semiconductor maker that supplies its products to Apple, has seen its shares rise 10 percent as investors buy the stock on expectations that Apple earnings could come in better than expected.
