讲座题目：Asset Growth, Style Investing, and Momentum
We establish a significant and robust connection between asset growth (AG) and style investing by showing that past style returns constructed based on AG and size significantly predict future stock returns. Motivated by this notion, we propose a style momentum strategy based on AG and size and find that it dominates price momentum and size-BM style momentum in generating momentum profits. We examine two competing explanations for this predictability, including the style-chasing hypothesis and the limited-attention theory. Empirical evidence shows that the AG-based style momentum profit is induced because investors neglect to use AG as an investment style, consistent with the limited-attention explanation but not the style-chasing hypothesis. Furthermore, we show that the profitability of the AG-based style momentum is robust to different time periods partitioned by several time-series predictors, including business cycles, market states, market volatilities, and investor sentiment.
