BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- Sometimes, the best buying opportunities come from finding the stocks that everyone else hates.That's one of the key tenants of contrarian investing, a school of market thought that's predicated on the idea that the crowd is wrong at turning points. If years like 2008 have taught us anything, it's that even the biggest stocks can get mispriced over long periods of time -- and investors who spot those mispricings can profit.
