I actually love it when everyone hates my idea - it’s where the money is made.

Expert investment analyst Steve Sjuggerud shared the mic with host of S&A Investor Radio, Frank Curzio last week to discuss the “secrets of being a contrarian investor”.

“A lot of people think that they’re contrarian investors but they’re really not,” stated Curzio. “But you (Sjuggerud) specifically –you like to buy things that are totally out of favor."

The term contrarian investor is most commonly used to describe someone who profits by investing in a manner that is different from that of conventional wisdom.

Sjuggerud explained that he “looks beyond the headlines” to find his most successful investment ideas stating, “I actually love it when everyone hates my idea - it’s where the money is made.

“When you saw everyone at cocktail parties in 2006 here in Florida talking about their latest real-estate deal and how they’re quitting their day jobs to be real-estate investors, you knew the top was in,” Sjuggerud went on to say, “And by 2009, when the bottom was starting to fall out, no one’s talking about it anymore. That’s when I’m getting interested.”
