Going long on short-term outperformance

Momentum investing bets on stock's recent price trend in either direction. Based on the idea that winners will rise higher and losers will sink lower, a momentum investor buys recent stock winners and sells recent losers. </br></br>Once the stock price establishes its momentum on a certain path, momo-theorists believe it is likely to continue its course. As climbs higher, you’ll have an opportunity to make profitable trades.[1] A landmark study in 1993 documented how this strategy generated significantly higher near-term returns than the U.S. market overall from 1965 to 1989. Momentum was later identified by Mark Cahart as a factor to explain stock market returns beyond the well-known Fama French model.[2] </br></br><b>Finding Momo in numbers: </b></br>-“A strategy of buying an equally weighted portfolio of last year's best decile of funds (ranked by gross return) provided an average gross return that was 3 percent per year higher than the gross return of the average mutual fund.”[3] See More
