7 Best Contrarian Candidates

Out-of Favor Stocks Showing Signs of Life

Contrarians, also known as value stock investors, look for stocks that are out of favor with the market. We think that analysts' buy/sell ratings are a better indicator of whether a stock is in or out of favor than the traditional valuation ratios such as price/earnings or price/sales.

Here are our 7 best contrarian picks. In each case, analysts are recommending selling, yet in the know mutual fund managers and other institutional buyers are buying. Even better, their price charts are showing signs of life.

Analysts Ratings: 1= Strong Buy, 2 = Weak Buy, 3 to 5 = Sell

Remember, these are research candidates, not recommended stocks. .
