    This is an excellent strategy. I have 2 queries – 1) Would like to know whether you have back tested less than 10 stocks (say top 5 stocks only) – to check whether the returns are higher in that case and
    2) In this strategy, we hold on to the purchased stocks for the holding period (say 12 months) irrespective of whether they qualify or not from 2nd month onwards…Then, after the holding period is over, we immediately sell those stock holdings that were no longer qualifying as momentum stocks – Right?

    Thanks for the quick reply. After reading the original article and related questions just now, I have another query –

    What is the reason for recommending a 4 month investment interval for a 12 month holding period and 2 month interval for 6 month holding period?

    Alternatively, is it OK if I just invest 10K every month into each of the top 10 stocks like a SIP and relook at the 1st investment of 1 lac after 12 months to filter out the drop outs…and repeat the process for 13th month and so on…would that be aligned with the recommended strategy?

      The interval is to have overlapping portfolios of 3 tranches in order to catch the different momentum stocks at regular intervals instead of going in all at once.

      You can invest how much ever you want. Just buy 10 stocks giving equal weight for each stock.
