NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The value investing crowd is a fairly small, deep-knitted group, and when we latch onto a theme, or an idea, we usually don't let go of it quickly. Many of us attend the same conferences, pay heed to the same living value investing legends, and still espouse the investment philosophy of those that are no longer with us (such as Ben Graham).There are times, however, when the wisdom of the crowd, even in value land, is just plain wrong. Certain names become the holy grail of deep value; the can't-miss opportunities. It's hard not to fall prey to this at times, and that applies not just to value investors.
