Momentum Stock Universe


3-10-17 jan performance

The momentum stock portfolio is created by Dr. James Krider and is valid for three months from the date of creation at which time it is closed. The performance of the “momentum universe” is NOT representative of Dr. Krider’s actual performance. This is a list of stocks from which stock positions are considered. The overall performance of the momentum portfolio is reported purely for demonstration of how this group of momentum stocks perform relative to the entire S&P 500 for the same period.


As of 3/10/17 all stocks have stopped out and this portfolio is closed to trading. This portfolio demonstrated two advantages of this type of trading. ONE – this represented a defensive “value” portfolio in response to the Trump election. Value stocks do not perform as well as momentum stocks in a bull market. The SECOND point is that with 20 stocks invested with a total of $80,668 to total loss was only $926, just a little over 1%. Not bad for limiting losses!
