Cooperman shared six of his best ideas in the interview, explaining a few reasons why he thinks the stocks — AMC Networks, Citigroup, CVS Health, Keane, Nabors and United Continental — are a good value for investors.
"I believe you’ve got to pay attention when a 17 percent owner is aggressively buying back stock," Cooperman said.
Keane and Nabors are both energy stocks which Cooperman sees benefiting from a rise in the price of oil.
"I think that the price of oil is going to be rising, not declining, which will be good for their business," Cooperman said.
Cooperman's Omega Advisors is converting to a family office at the end of 2018, according to an investor letter obtained by CNBC on Monday. Cooperman's main fund generated annualized returns of 12.4 percent since inception versus the S&P 500's 9.5 percent return including reinvested dividends, according to Institutional Investor.
