Overview

Contrarian investing--what it is, how it works, and why millions of successful investors see it as the only logical choice

"(Davis is) one of the most widely respected technical market analysts operating today."

--Louis Rukeyser

Contrarians say that, when it comes to investing, the crowd is wrong more often than it is right--and prove it with their 200-year history of success! The Triumph of Contrarian Investing is a fascinating, in depth examination of the impact of crowd psychology on markets, how the crowd is often predictably incorrect, and how investors can use long-proven contrarian investing strategies to uncover tremendous buying and selling opportunities.

Ned Davis, one of today's biggest names in investing, reveals:

  • How to ignore the temptation to "join the crowd" and uncover tremendous opportunities
  • Consistent signs that a stock's price has been driven too high or too low
  • Strategies for protecting contrarian portfolios when--as sometimes happens--the crowd is right

Ned Davis is one of today's most authoritative and respected voices in investing. He founded Ned Davis Research in 1980, and the company's focus on risk management, staying with the primary trend, and avoiding major disasters has made it among the world's largest and most influential financial research companies with more than 5,000 institutional clients.
