Data Set

Value and Momentum Everywhere: Original Paper Data

This is the original data set used for our paper “Value and Momentum Everywhere,” in which we find consistent value and momentum return premia across eight diverse markets and asset classes, and a common factor structure among their returns.

Data Set

AQR Momentum Indices, Monthly

We have developed methodologies for U.S. and international markets that capture momentum in an intuitive and transparent way. The methodology can be applied to any universe of stocks. We have included monthly data for our three momentum indices here.

The Case for Momentum Investing

Although a powerful investment style, momentum was largely unavailable to many investors. The introduction of the AQR Momentum Indices has been a pivotal development in momentum’s acceptance as an investment strategy.

Fact, Fiction and Momentum Investing

Momentum is the phenomenon that securities that have performed well relative to peers (winners) on average continue to outperform, and securities that have performed relatively poorly (losers) tend to continue to underperform.

Do Industries Explain Momentum?

The ability to outperform buy-and-hold strategies by acquiring past winning stocks and selling past losing stocks, commonly referred to as "individual stock momentum," remains one of the most puzzling of these anomalies, both because of its magnitude (up to 12 percent abnormal return per dollar long on a self-financing strategy per year) and because of the peculiar horizon pattern that it seems to follow: Trading based on individual stock momentum appears to be a poor strategy when using a short historical horizon for portfolio formation (especially less than one month); it is highly profitable at intermediate horizons (up to 24 months, although it is strongest in the 6- to 12-month range); and is again a poor strategy at longer horizons. This paper largely focuses on the positive persistence in stock returns (or momentum effect) over intermediate investment horizons (6 to 12 months) and explores various explanations for its existence.

The Interaction of Value and Momentum Strategies

Researchers have convincingly demonstrated that value strategies can be used to predict stock returns.

Journal Article

Momentum Crashes

A momentum strategy is a bet that past returns will predict future returns in the cross-section of assets, and is typically implemented by buying past winners and selling past losers.

Bibliography

Momentum Bibliography

We have compiled a list of books, journal articles and working papers that were helpful in developing our research around momentum strategies.

Expected Returns on Major Asset Classes

Expected returns are arguably the most important input into investment decisions. By broadening the traditional paradigm of expected return estimation, we think investors have the ability achive better-diversified portfolios and more forward-looking analysis.
