Lee Cooperman on 3 Stages of a Bull Market: Interview

Omega Advisors' Lee Cooperman spoke with CNBC this morning.  He thinks markets are fairly valued and he thinks a 15-16x multiple is about right.  He doesn't think it's a bargain anymore.

Cooperman on the 3 Stages of a Bull Market

Phase 1: "Wow we survived."  As the market bottoms and pessimism slowly starts to fade.
Phase 2: "Reflecting that which is perspective."  4-5 years of rising economic activity.
Phase 3: "Exuberance phase, the silliness phase where people forget about the mistakes."  He doesn't think we're quite there yet, but there are pockets of silly valuation like Potbelly (PBPB) and Telsa (TSLA).

His Stock Picks Now

"What we're looking for is to find more growth at a lower valuation."  He said he's looking at 'red chips' instead of 'blue chip' stocks and specifically touched on Sprint Nextel (S).   He also likes Motorola Solutions (MSI), Swatch Group (UHR), Sandridge Energy (SD), and Qualcomm (QCOM).
