Momentum In Stock Prices

In a rational world with information fully priced into securities, you would not expect that stock prices to have momentum.  However there is much academic research demonstrating that the momentum effect is a very powerful force in explaining portfolio returns.

In this week’s Science of Investing Cameron discusses this phenomenon with host Jason McIntyre, and a recent academic paper that shows that this effect has been less prevalent during the past decade.

These topics are discussed in this week’s Science of Investing with host Jason McIntyre.
