Price Momentum Screen 30 Qualifying in UK

Price Momentum is a momentum investing strategy first credited to research by academics Narasimhan Jegadeesh and Sheridan Titman in their paper, Returns to buying winners and selling losers. As its core measure it looks for the top 25% of stocks in the market ranked by their relative price strength over six and 12 months. Research into momentum strategies has shown that previously winning stocks have a tendency to keep rising in price over the medium term, while previous losers tend to keep falling. Academics and professionals have credited this anomaly to investors being slow to absorb the implications of positive news about stocks, which causes prices to drift up over time. In their 1993 paper, Jegadeesh and Titman wrote: "The strategy we examine in most detail, which selects stocks based on their past 6-month returns and holds them for 6 months, realises a compounded excess return of 12.01% per year on average."

Returns to Buying Winners and Selling Losers

by Jegadeesh and Titman

Jegadeesh and Titman’s 1993 paper “Returns to Buying Winners and Selling Losers: Implications for Stock Market Efficiency” generally get the credit for “discovering” the momentum effect in academic circles. Their work showed that simple relative strength strategies that rank stocks based on their past 3-12 month returns predicted relative performance over the next 3-12 months.
