ASX Momentum Stocks

5 Mar 2021
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.

G’day Guys

Just got a question regarding the momentum stock table vs the momentum strategy. The stock table, provided for free, seems to contain more up to date information (weekly) than the strategy (monthly) that is for paying customers like myself.

In the current market where 1 stock can move wildly daily and weekly, a monthly update for the strategy doesn’t seem to cut it…..

Gladly proven otherwise.

Good Morning Troy, The Momentum Stock Table and the Momentum Strategy, while based on the same concept do contain different information and are intended for different purposes. The Stock Table ranks the ASX200 based on only one measure – being the 12-month price return, known as rate of change (ROC). On the other hand, the Strategy ranking, while limited to the ASX100, uses a combination of ROC measures in order to rank stocks, done so because our testing has shown a combination of different ROC periods has historically yield better results than using just the one. More so, our testing… Read more »

OK, that makes sense. Thanks for the quick reply and clarification Oliver.

Hi William, Momentum Strategy and Momentum Stock tables are different. I guess there must be an explanation somewhere but couldn’t find it.

Hi William, It’s good to see that the site has much more information than before but the site is not user friendly. I am not sure whether the site is still under construction or fully completed but you have buttons on the site that don’t function eg when you go to “ASX Momentum Stocks” you have buttons for “stock tables”, “growth”, “Australia” but they are not functional. It is confusing and difficult to find information, and also its difficult to distinguish between free info and info for the members. I am sure your web designer can do a much better… Read more »

Hi Sangh, We are constantly working on improving the website so we do appreciate any feedback you have. Those “buttons” you refer to aren’t actually buttons but rather are just tags that show what categories the article relates to. Looking at them now I can see how they look like clickable buttons so perhaps we need to look at making that clearer. If you do want to filter articles by any of those categories you can simply use the filter options on the main resources page. In terms of distinguishing between free and paid content the easiest way to do… Read more »

Where is the print button? I have not got the luxury of a 3 screen display and do most of my trading on a mobile phone. Therefore I will ‘print’ and keep the info while I trade on the next screen. So far this website is proving to be a bit of a very steep learning curve

William O.

Hi Axel,
We will be turning on the print to pdf button for desktop this week. We didn’t expect that people using a mobile phone would need such a button so we don’t currently have that feature in the pipeline but if there is demand for this we can certainly look to get it added.

We are glad you liked it
