CNBC "Halftime Report" investor Jim Lebenthal on Monday bought Lockheed Martin for his CNBC PRO model portfolio.

The CEO of Lebenthal Asset Management is up 33 percent this year, which is good for first place in the trading contest.

Donald Trump criticized the costs of Lockheed Martin's F-35 program Tuesday morning on Twitter. The defense company's shares were down 3 percent midday following the president-elect's tweet.
