Sticking With Short-term Outperformance

Momentum was first identified in 1997 by Mark Cahart as a factor to explain stock market returns beyond the well-known Fama French model. Since then, it has been used in various investment strategies to screen stocks that have done well over the past period, with the belief that the trend will continue in the near future. And the past has shown that in times of a market rally, momentum stocks can typically be better positioned to lead the market. [2] This motif provides exposure to companies whose stock prices have risen the most over the past six months, on a risk-adjusted basis. See more
