Goldman Sachs is recommending fund manager clients buy the stocks that their peers are neglecting in order to beat the S&P 500 this year.

This is a similar strategy that the firm recommended to its hedge fund clients two weeks ago .

So the investment bank that many try to emulate is going all in on a contrarian theme to play this topsy-turvy stock market that is stuck in a trading range.
