John Rogers Jr., chairman and co-CEO of Ariel Investments, was buying stocks in late March despite the uncertainty of the coronavirus crisis. But even after the market's steep rise from its pandemic-induced lows and growing Covid-19 cases in certain states, Rogers told CNBC on Wednesday that pockets of value remain in the market.
"Stocks are not as cheap as they were, but there are still a lot of bargains. We're still leaning in. We're still buying," Rogers said on "Closing Bell."
These are the stocks the firm likes.
