Are the returns higher than if I were to following the crowd?
Then, what is a contrarian investor? there is possibly not a good definition.
going into the different direction than the crowd is maybe not successful.
Somehow (for the U.S.) the SP500 is some kind of crowd thinking (the average
market sentiment) and thus was/is highly successul.
since nobody, even the pros, can robustly predict the market, maybe
the better target points in investing are:
-invest ultra-longterm (don't buy and sell often), stay course
-reduce fees to the lowest possible
