Wednesday’s Factors and Events

This quant fund screens for U.S.-listed midcaps that combine momentum, earnings growth and cheap valuations. For valuation, companies have to trade for a price-to-sales ratio below 1.5 to make the cut.

It makes sense to focus on value names in the mo-mo arena for a simple reason: Value is really out of favor. It looks like a good contrarian bet and a way to profit from the “reversion to the mean” tactic which helped make Ray Dalio of Bridgewater a billionaire.

Consider this remarkable datapoint, again courtesy of Linehan at T. Rowe Price. The market’s cheapest stocks (the bottom 20% by forward price-earnings multiples) now make up less than 5% of the top 20% of momentum names. This, too, is a rare event. The percentage has narrowed this much only six times in the past 30 years. Each time, value went on to post a remarkable rally for at least a year or more.
