"A contrarian investor makes investment decisions contrary to prevailing beliefs—for example, buying when most other investors are pessimistic and selling when most others are optimistic. Contrarian investing tends to emphasize out-of-favor securities that are selling at low price multiples to some measure of value, such as low price-earnings or price-to-sales ratios. Some of the most famous contrarian investors include Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett and David Dreman." -- American Association of Individual Investors
