Investment advisor Michael Farr has picked 10 stocks to add to his portfolio this week and hold on to through 2021, including two of the biggest names in tech.

Farr, the CEO of Farr, Miller & Washington and a CNBC contributor, debuted his list on CNBC's "Halftime Report" and said the companies chosen are, on average, stocks that are trading at a discount to the S&P 500 with relatively high earnings growth.

"This year's Top Ten represent a nice combination of growth and defensiveness," Farr said in a note explaining his picks.
