The 19 Stocks On Leon Cooperman's Radar

Leon Cooperman
is a very rich hedge fund manager, but by his own admission, he should be even richer.

Speaking as a guest on CNBC's "Fast Money Halftime Report" last week, Cooperman explained that his analysts have held a "very bullish" stance on the stock market, which implies his value-oriented Omega Advisors' hedge fund couldn't be as aggressive as had hoped. In Alphabet's case, the stock is trading at just 18.4x next year's earnings while Facebook is trading at 17x earnings.
