Billionaire Investor Cooperman Says He Would Sell Stocks on Strength Because Market is Fairly Valued (CNBC)
Chairman and CEO of Omega Advisors Leon Cooperman told CNBC on Wednesday he would take some profits on his holdings if stocks gained because the market is fully valued. “I’m sympathetic to the idea that sometime in the next 12 to 24 months, there will be events that will catch the market. In other words, … I think that inflation and interest rates will catch up to the market as we normalize,” Cooperman said on “Squawk Box.” Cooperman – renowned on Wall Street for his value investing and fundamental analysis – argued that 2019 could be a turbulent year for equities because the Federal Reserve is tightening monetary conditions and inflation is looking stronger.

The team that filmed “Blue Planet II,” one of the most remarkable nature documentaries ever, conducted a number of their shoots from the Alucia. These dives took filmmakers deeper under Antarctica than any person has ever gone and resulted in the discovery of new species.
