    There are a lot of things you have mentioned which are more more suitable for portfolio managers than retail investors who hold maybe 10-15 stocks.

    This is a great video. Great in the fact that your ideas make me check a few things out. The QQQ destroys MTUM on a 1, 5, and 9 year basis. Ok I am rounding up to 2022. These are pretty big time horizons. The video made me take a look at QQQ's holdings. 50% of the portfolio is Apple Microsoft Amazon Tesla FB Google NVIDA Paypal and Intel. Not a bad place to be. Not a huge Tesla fan but Elon Musk is tough to bet against. Some Tech companies are now a defensive play in some ways. Cash is king and Apple Microsoft Google and Face have an abundance of FFC. In addition, to data investors need to have an understanding of what is going on around them. I just see Tech playing a bigger and bigger role.

    Ha… Pardon me but physics momentum has nothing to do with stock’s momentum especially in ETF. just heard Rosenburg rebalanced MTUM to lighten up on tech and loaded up on financials. And financials is tanking. On top of the lack of volume, there will be no momentum. MTUM is done.

    Kind of completely blows away the "homo economicus" theory – which i always found ridiculous anyway. As if the majority of people make purely rational choices. Far from it..

    Thx man! Your videos and content are great. Also your ebook is so on point, i have learned a lot!
    As a european i rather choose IMTM over MTUM for diversification and momentum is a historically good factor.
    Keep up the good work!

    Does this conflict with random walk theory?

    Today would you still use mtum over qqq and is it still good to keep for the long term? Would you also be willing to share your m1 finance portfolio? Thanks

    Have you evaluated MTUM vs. TQQQ? What's your thought?

    Is MTUM actively managed or is it passively managed?

    Thanks for the great content Nathan. I wonder if you have any comments regarding other two momentum's ETFs that have been outperforming MTUM over the last three years (VFMO & JMOM). Also, SCHD was a great addition to my retirement investing account (picked it after watching one of your videos).

    I will def put MTUM into my watchlist! Thanks.

    Thanks for a good stuff. You basically described my investing style: holding falling knives with two hands and selling the winners way too early. Most of momentum etfs are currently holding the usual suspects – FAANGs, Teslas etc. What if, or when, tides will change, maybe sector rotation, black swan or something else, how will then momentum etfs switch their holdings?

    Hi Nathan. Thank for such a quality video. I have access to and and both websites allow me to compare ETFs. When I input MTUM and QQQ, on both website, the result is QQQ is far ahead of MTUM, so I don't know how you come to the conclusion that MTUM outperforms QQQ?
    Thank for a quick reply and have a wonderful day.

    Great video and it's making me reassess my investment strategy. I'm looking at VFMO, Vanguard's momentum factor ETF. It's relatively new but seems to be slightly cheaper than MTUM and appears to have slightly outperformed it. Would love to get your thoughts on it!

    Momentum seems like growth investing. I feel a bit conflicted now

    I read that MTUM follows the MSCI USA Momentum Index but will switch to the MSCI USA Momentum SR Variant Index as of December 1, 2020. Does this change anything? (Especially since you've mentioned the research was on the former index)

    Recently found your channel and love this particular analysis of momentum, thank you for the time spent to research and share findings! Would you agree that MTUM is a better long term option than VOO/SPY or similar S&P 500 ETFs in a balanced portfolio (including fixed income, value, small caps, international, REITs)? While I was educated in modern portfolio theory and efficent markets it is interesting that French & Fama can’t explain the outperformance of momentum. Have I not been paying attention or are most academics and investment “experts” still beating the drum on just using market cap index options?

    I wonder if the XMTM.TO is truly the Canadian equivalent of MTUM.

  29. bingomutant1

    well researched and clearly presented. Excellent. I wonder if momentum funds are more or less volatile than trackers?

  30. Aaron Morgan
    July 29, 2021 at 10:53 am

    MTUM hasn't been around as long as QQQ so how do we know for sure it will outperform QQQ in the long term?
