Momentum and crash sensitivity

Stefan Ruenzi () and Florian Weigert

Economics Letters, 2018, vol. 165, issue C, 77-81

Abstract: We suggest a risk-based explanation of the momentum anomaly. Controlling for the exposure to systematic crash risk reduces the momentum effect from a significant 11.94% p.a. to an insignificant 1.84% p.a. Similar results are obtained in a broad sample of international equity markets.
