The Dow Jones US Contrarian Opportunities Index, a transparent, rules-based tool for benchmarking contrarian investment strategies is designed to systematically measure the performance of stocks that lag behind the broader market in terms of recent performance, but that outrank their peers based on fundamentals-based and other qualitative criteria. Eligible for selection are stocks in the Dow Jones US Broad Stock Market Index.

The Dow Jones US Contrarian Opportunities Index is equal weighted and reviewed semi-annually in January and July with changes taking effect in February and August, respectively.
