Well-known investor Ken Heebner was on CNBC to discuss Citi's (C) CEO Vikram Pandit's resignation from the company. He also provided his outlook for the housing market and housing prices.

-- Citi is well positioned even after the CEO's departure.

-- Recently quarterly earnings were strong, and Citi is selling at eight times next years earnings.

-- Citi has fixed its balance sheet, has lots of cash and is increasing its reserves.

-- Pandit did a great job; it doesn't matter who runs the company now.

-- Break up will not add value. The market will pay a higher multiple for Citi as it is today and market value its diversified portfolio of revenue streams.

-- Optimistic about the U.S. economy and U.S. stock market.

-- U.S. has many years of growth ahead as housing improvements which will lead to more people getting jobs. And that will drive spending and growth.
