Is Now the Time to Buy Stocks?

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world.

Billionaire fund manager Leon Cooperman says we need to take advantage of the market today and buy stocks. Cooperman thinks student-loan company Sallie Mae in particular is a great long-term play as students will need loans to go to school. He also believes Apple is very cheap relative to its future. Finally, Cooperman likes strong managers and is partial to JPMorgan at the moment. One stock from John and David's real-money portfolio that might fit in Cooperman’s strategy is Denbury Resources. It’s a solid oil producer with a low-cost extraction process, a solid management team, and is a cheap stock. That’s how Cooperman made his billions, right?
