David Dreman Investing Philosophy

The Contrarian and the value guru, Dreman's investment philosophy is based on low P/E approach to stock selection. The philosophy at Dreman Value Management: "We invest in undervalued companies that exhibit strong fundamentals, above-market dividend yields and historic earnings growth, which our analysis indicates will persist. Our strategy is to own strong, fundamentally sound companies and to avoid speculative stocks or potential bankruptcies." They believe that the markets are not perfectly efficient, and that behavioral psychology influences investor actions and reactions.
