Part 1: It’s Time to Become a Contrarian Bodybuilder

A contrarian, according to Wikipedia, is a person with a preference for taking a position opposed to that of the majority.

In simple terms, they do the opposite of what everybody else is doing.

Most commonly, the label is used in the investing world. You have, more likely than not, heard of a ‘contrarian investor.’

 

Warren Buffet said, “What the wise man does at the beginning, the fool does in the end.”

The best time to buy stocks is when the market has crashed, the price is low and the stock is undervalued. The best time to sell is when the stock price is at its highest peak, everything is going great and the stock is becoming overvalued.

This is a common contrarian investing strategy, yet why is it that the majority of investors buy in and jump on the band wagon when everybody else is buying the latest and the greatest, hopes are high and so is the rising price?

Then bad news hits and things begin to take a turn for the worse. The majority of investors ride the market down hoping that it will turn around. Surprise, it doesn’t… and then even more bad news hits. Everyone panics and suddenly decides to get out after the market has already tanked and now fear losing it all.

Read the quote by Warren Buffet again for the answer! (more…)
