 Dodge & Cox Stock's (DODGX) comeback attempt got a boost this week from  Google's (GOOG) agreement to buy  Motorola Mobility (MMI) for $12.5 billion.

Dodge & Cox Stock has owned Motorola since 2003, several years prior to its 2011 split into Motorola Mobility and  Motorola Solutions (MSI). The fund's reasons for holding the stock are consistent with its long-term, contrarian style. The stock experienced a steep decline after 2006, but the management team stuck to the holding because it believed the value of the firm's intellectual capital and existing businesses, as well as its strong balance sheet, were ignored by the marketplace. Other top owners of the stock include  T. Rowe Price Mid-Cap Growth (RPMGX),  Dodge & Cox Balanced (DODBX), and  T. Rowe Price Mid-Cap Value (TRMCX).
