Fund Description

The Fidelity Contrafund (FCNTX) made its debut in 1967, and focuses on capital appreciation. To achieve its objective, FCNTX targets securities whose value Fidelity believes is not fully recognized by the public. In particular, the fund focuses on companies with “best of breed” qualities, including those with a strong competitive position, high return on capital, solid free-cash-flow generation and a management team that is a steward of shareholder capital.

The resulting portfolio consists of both growth and value stocks, though the majority of FCNTX’s holdings are large capitalization growth stocks. In terms of sector allocation, the fund allocates a significant portion of its assets towards information technology, consumer discretionary, financial, and health care stocks. FCNTX is managed by William Danoff, who has managed the fund since 1990.
