David Dreman's name is synonymous with the term "contrarian investing," and his contrarian strategies have been proven winners year after year. His techniques have spawned countless imitators, most of whom pay lip service to the buzzword "contrarian," but few can match his performance. His Kemper-Dreman High Return Fund has been the leader since its inception in 1988 -- the number one equity-income fund among all 208 ranked by Lipper Analytical Services, Inc. Dreman is also one of a handful of money managers whose clients have beaten the runaway market over the past five, ten, and fifteen years. Now, as the longest bull market in the history of the stock market winds down, there is increasing volatility and a great deal of uncertainty. This is the climate that tests the mettle of the pros, the worries of the average investor, and the success of David Dreman's brilliant new strategies for the next millennium. Contrarian Investment Strategies: The Next Generation shows investors how to outperform professional money managers and profit from potential Wall Street panics -- all in Dreman's trademark style, which The New York Times calls "witty and clear as a silver bell." Dreman reveals a proven, systematic, and safe way to beat the market by buying stocks of good companies when they are currently out of favor. At the heart of his book is a fundamental psychological insight: investors overreact. Dreman demonstrates how investors consistently overvalue the so-called "best" stocks and undervalue the so-called "worst" stocks, and how earnings and other surprises affect the best and worst stocks in opposite ways. Since surprises are a way of life in the market, Dreman shows you how to profit from these surprises with his ingenious new techniques, most of which have been developed in the nineties. You'll learn: Why contrarian stocks offer extra protection in bear markets, as well as delivering superior returns when the bull roars. Why a high dividend yield is just as important for the aggressive investor as it is for "widows and orphans." Why owning Treasury bills and government bonds -- the "safest investments" for centuries -- is like being fully margined at the top of the 1929 market. Why Initial Public Offerings are a guaranteed loser's game. Why you should avoid Nasdaq ("the market of the next hundred years") like the plague. Why crisis, panic, and even market downturns are the contrarian investor's best friend. Why the chances of hitting a home run using the Street's best research are worse than being the big winner in the New York State Lottery. Based on cutting-edge research and irrefutable statistics, David Dreman's revolutionary techniques will benefit professionals and laymen alike.

Contradicts the traditional finance theory. We believe that the explanation is found within the behavioral finance theory. Investors are subject to several kinds of decision biases, which originate from limited cognitive capacity. We expect that as long as naive investors are challenged by limited cognitive capacity and keep extrapolating past performance into the future the value premium will continue to exist, hence generating possibilities for the value investors.

Contrarian Investment Strategies on the Swedish Stock MarketContrarian Investment Strategies on the Swedish Stock Market



Risk measure beta is on average lower for value portfolios than for growth portfolios, which totally contradicts the traditional finance theory.

risk measure beta is on average lower for value portfolios than for growth portfolios, which totally contradicts the traditional finance theory. Additionally the value strategy does not perform worse in bad states of the economy, which otherwise could have indicated that the value stocks had increased downside risk. The irrational arguments seem to fit the existence of the value premium better. Investors are subject to several kinds of judgment biases, which originate from limited cognitive capacity. Therefore different types of heuristics are used that can limit the investors? ability to make rational decisions. Incorrect usage of heuristics can encourage investors to extrapolate past performance too far into the future. When performing a simple extrapolation test on the Swedish stock market it is found that the net profit growth ahead of portfolio formation is slightly negative for the value portfolio, whereas net profit after formation is slightly positive. The picture is the opposite for the growth portfolio. The results indicate that markets undervalue value stocks and overvalue growth stocks, which lead to a positive performance of value stocks when the market participants realize that their view of growth stocks have been too optimistic and their view of value stocks too pessimistic.
