There is very little you can do to help a contrarian apart from articulating your ideas to them and leaving them to make a decision. A contrarian is a person who takes up a position opposed to that of the majority, no matter how unpopular. A contrarian believes that certain crowd behavior among investors can lead to exploitable mis-pricings in securities markets. There is need to educate them on the market mechanisms that influence market activity to remove the notion that the economy can be solely people driven.
