Are you a stock market contrarian?
Investor sentiment, a measure of how investors feel about the stock market, is often a contrarian indicator of where the stock market actually ends up going. There’s an entire class of investors who proudly identify as contrarian investors. These contrarian investors look for buying opportunities when investor sentiment is low and look to take profits when investor sentiment is high. There have been plenty of negative headlines about the market in recent months, but DataTrek Research co-founder Nicholas Colas recently compiled a list of reasons long-term contrarian investors may be scooping up stocks despite the prevailing fears.
