Stocks are my hobby. I watch what I decide are or will be needs, in such things as food, transportation, and resources. My political philosophy is conservative. I prefer reliability to complexity. (portfolio illustration) I prefer to seek my own knowledge and interests. Not be presented with details that do not interest me. There are enough ideas to discover without sorting what I already know.

ContraHour is an anonymous blog written by a co-portfolio manager of a small cap and dividend-oriented, value portfolio. As he writes on his site, the name of his blog has the following origin: "If you're a fan of Todd Harrison's Minyanville, you'll recognize the title of my blog. ContraHour refers to the hour before the market closes (2 - 3 pm) when the market often does the opposite of what it will do going into the close."
Working on the buy side, ContraHour considers himself a contrarian investor whose fortes include 1) buying broken growth stocks that have been beaten down but have already shown some aptitude in turning around; 2) buying growth stocks that have yet to be discovered or 3) buying deep value stocks that most investors have given up.
