ASX Momentum Stocks

17 Jan 2020
Momentum is the term used to describe the market anomaly that stocks that have been performing well in the past tend to continue to do so in the future.

The below table ranks all stocks within the S&P/ASX 200 index based on their trailing 12-month share price return and shows the top 15 results. ‘Momentum’ is a well-researched market factor and states that stocks that have out-performed their peers over the medium term tend to continue to outperform over the short-term. Thus by keeping an eye on the stocks within this list, we have a watchlist of potential ideas that will do well over the coming weeks.

Hi William, It’s good to see that the site has much more information than before but the site is not user friendly.
