Leon Cooperman’s Favorite Investment Idea

Leon Cooperman was on CNBC today. He is extremely bullish about the stock market. He said more than half of S&P 500 companies have higher dividend yields than the 10-year treasury bonds. Cooperman is currently investing in Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs).

OMEGA ADVISORS Leon Cooperman

“We have a lot of the MLPs with very fat dividend yields. Linn Energy yielding close to 7%. I noticed in a recent SEC  presentation they were buying back stock at $32 from the Treasury, NAV- probably in the mid-40′s. But you know, let’s face it there’s an old expression, regrettably, and it’s kind of more right than wrong:  It’s bull markets who need analysts and bear markets who need stocks. The markets become very macro and people are very concerned. You really are losing the marginal buyer. The public is redeeming out at almost record levels. Corporations are very strange; they’re emphasizing fixed income in their pension plans, for whatever reason, but they’re buying back a ton of stock- and that’s kind of inconsistent behavior. And so I think we’re just trying to find a level here, and as I said everybody is just replaying ’08 and it’s not going to be ’08.”

Cooperman’s two largest MLPs in his 13F portfolio were Atlas Pipeline Partners (APL) and Linn Energy (LINE).
