Momentum investing(redirected from MOMO)
Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Acronyms, Wikipedia.
A momentum investor focuses on stocks that are rising in value on increasing daily volume, and avoids stocks that are falling in price or that are perceived to be undervalued.
The logic is that when a pattern of growth has been established, it will continue to gain momentum and the growth will continue. Momentum investing is essentially the opposite of contrarian investing.
