Profitability of the Momentum Strategies in the Tunisian Stock Market

Ramzi Boussaidi, Chaima Hmida

Abstract


This paper examines the profitability of the momentum strategies in the Tunisian stock market using all the listed firms for the period 1991-2015. The stock performance is measured by the returns and the cumulative abnormal returns during a formation and holding period of 3-12 months. We found evidence of momentum profitability especially for the sub-period 2003-2015. Buying the tercile or the quintile portfolio of stocks that have performed well in the past 3, 6 and 9 months and selling the tercile or quintile of the stocks that have performed poorly during the same periods, generate statistically and economically positive returns during the subsequent 3, 6, 9 and 12 months.
