  • Jan. 2020   Momentum has its own values (WP, submitted)
    Value and momentum investing strategies have been successfully implemented in finance, but conflicts between them have become the most puzzling anomaly in portfolio management. As a modern portfolio theory suggested that any investing strategy should not be assessed in isolation and this paper proposes an alternative investing method to form a momentum portfolio while considering its fundamental value at the same time. I find more high value-adjusted momentum portfolios have more substantial growth. The portfolio and regression tests also show that the proposed method can not only mitigate the impact of unexpected financial shocks but also inherit the downside risk, especially the market is during a turbulent time.
  • Jan. 2020   How much does nominal share price matter? (WP, submitted)
    While splitting a stock can allow firm managers to keep the nominal share price remaining a constant level and attracting more investors, however, it also increases the likelihood of speculated trading by those who have limited budgets and risk share capacity. This paper shows stocks with immediate nominal share price levels contain more price momentum and utilize less systemic risk. Explicitly controlling for stock splits, we find remaining a constant nominal share price level will cause information diffusing more slowly and leading to higher price momentum.
