For 21 of the past 22 years, amorous suitors have chased at least one stock in the Contra portfolio. Naturally, this is one of the reasons our returns have been so excellent. We believe it is simply a confirmation of our investing method, which is to buy undervalued, underappreciated assets that other shareholders have decided to part with at fire-sale prices.
