    Thinking that Pres. Obama will shift his "anti-business" views for "political reasons," hedge fund titan Leon Cooperman remains bullish on stocks. His favorite: Spectrum Brands (SPM), because of its focus on middle-income shoppers that are becoming more "thrifty" by moving to lower-cost products. Other favorites: AAPL, BSX, KKR, QCOM, SLM.

    SLM Corp. (SLM +6.5%) is among the day's top gainers after Barron’s says shares of the student loan provider could climb as high as $20 in the next 18 months. Investors aren't giving Sallie Mae enough credit for its large government-backed loan portfolio, which is “virtually risk-free,” Andrew Bary writes. There’s also a possibility that a big bank could come calling, he says.
