Don Hodges, chairman of Hodges Capital Management, uses a contrarian style of investing across his Hodges Small Cap (HDPSX) and Hodges Pure Contrarian (HDPCX) funds. After targeting an out-of-favor company, Hodges looks at the company's fundamentals, and talks to its competitors and customers to determine if it can survive whatever has bought its stock down. If a company has good management, is relatively debt free, has profits that are trending upward, and there are credible reasons why it can turn itself around, he may take a significant position in its stock.
