ETFs: Winners and losers

New research on momentum investing highlights two standout ETFs.

Summary: A new book shows that momentum investing beats a buy and hold approach, and does so with less risk. This is especially the case when taking into account absolute momentum, not just relative strength momentum, which means measuring an ETF’s 12 month percentage rate of change every month and switching to a bond or bill fund whenever this score turns negative.

Key take out: The ETFs with the strongest annual momentum at present are US shares (IVV) and Australian commercial property (SLF).

Key beneficiaries: General Investors. Category: Economics and investment strategy.
