Lee Cooperman's Favorite Stock Picks at Delivering Alpha Conference

At CNBC and Institutional Investor's Delivering Alpha conference today, Omega Advisors' Lee Cooperman shared his favorite stock picks.

He likes Actavis (ACT), a tax inversion play, Citigroup (C), a good buy he says because the economy is healing with loan demand and one that could narrow the discount to book value over time, as well as Gaming and Leisure Properties (GLPI) and Nordic American Offshore (NAO).

Other plays he likes include: QEP Resources (QEP), Supervalu (SVU), Louis XIII (577 HK), and Monitise (MONI.LN), the mobile payments play he's pitched before.

Lastly, he also mentioned Thermo Fisher Scientific (TMO), KKR (KKR) and Sandridge Energy (SD).

Cooperman also noted that the last time the Fed raised rates was in 2006 and around 25% of fund managers weren't really around to experience that.

He also joked that the last time he was bearish was during his Bar Mitzvah.

One quote that stood out from him was that, "if you buy something that's out of favor, things seem to happen to make you right."
