A knockout 2016 for blue-chip momentum

The allure of a classic momentum strategy (buying the market's fastest rising shares in expectation that they'll continue going up) is not the prospect of being first to the party, but rather getting to the party early enough to still enjoy a good portion of the fun. The past year has provided a great illustration of this dynamic in action. And this has ultimately resulted in an excellent 2016 for the long portfolios selected by my blue-chip momentum screen, which I run every three months based on selecting the previous quarter's 10 best-performing (the longs) and 10 worst-performing (the shorts) FTSE 100 shares.
