Billionaire investor Leon Cooperman said Thursday the stock market is not susceptible to an imminent correction, and investors can still find plenty of bargains.

"The cyclical conditions are not ripe for a big decline," he told CNBC's "Squawk Box." "I'm finding a lot of things to do in the market which is encouraging. … By and large most companies are not overvalued."
