What Stocks Leon Cooperman Just Bought
There is no shortage of cheap stocks, says Leon Cooperman of Omega Advisors, who shares two new positions.

Cooperman added that he had bought Apple stock in the "lower $400s," noting that it was a small position.

But he played options for a fast, winning trade.

"About two weeks ago, I bought a January 400 call, sold a January 460 call and I sold a January 325 put, zero. No cost. Took about $30," he said.

"We didn't do enough size unfortunately," Cooperman added. "We couldn't get it done."
