Investors Carnival: Alok Jain And His Theory Of Momentum Investing

Alok Jain of WeekendInvesting.com is a momentum investor.

“We believe in price momentum compared to the fundamentals of a company,” he told BloombergQuint on the sidelines of the Investors Carnival in Goa.

Jain’s investing style fetched him successful bets like HEG Ltd., Graphite India Ltd. and Goa Carbon Ltd. “When we invested in these companies, their fundamentals may not have been the best, but their price action suggested that they were bound to give strong returns,” he said.

As far as the current market is concerned, Jain finds opportunities in metals and information technology stocks. “Their momentum is on the stronger side,” he said. We will look to invest in these stocks as and when the current market finds a bottom.”
