Morningstar's Contrarian Portfolio--10 Stocks to Buy

Introducing Morningstar's 2005 Contrarian Portfolio
We think that the promise of our Contrarian strategy warrants releasing it for investors to consider. To that end, we'll evaluate our 2004 and 2005 contrarian portfolios over time, and if the concept continues to generate attractive returns we may publish these annually. While we won't release page rank data, we will provide an occasional update on our contrarian portfolios. Here are our 10 contrarian stock ideas for 2005, along with their page ranks and 2004 returns:
