About Me:

 I am a competition economist by day but also a keen private investor. I am a 'quality' investor - I try to invest in the best companies for the long term. I also try to exploit momentum.

I have recently started writing a blog to track my progress as an investor: Quality Share Surfer

Investment Strategy
I trade... monthly
I tend to buy... according to my system
I hold for... years
I invest with... <£500k
Diversification is ... essential to reduce risk
My strategy is focussed primarily on exploiting two complementary factors in combination: a) the tendency for high quality defensive compounders to outperform over time and b) the tendency of shares with momentum to continue to do well. You could call me a 'quality' investor. See more at my blog (link above)

FYI a useful relevant article setting out difference between' reversion to mean' value and 'momentum' value investing:

I'm not sure if you really read my post before replying but you probably should have as your response is quite rude - patronising but totally misses the point. Perhaps you should take the 'opportunity here for you to learn something you didn't know before you read this thread'. As I said in my previous comment, there is a (weak) correlation with the momentum rank…
