This paper investigates the profitability of momentum investment strategies–residual momentum versus price momentum–for common stocks listed in Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand. This study shows that the residual-momentum winner and loser on the previous residual returns derived under the CAPM have lower time-varying exposures to the market risk. The residual momentum strategy generates not only higher but also more consistent returns over time than the price momentum strategy. Moreover, the residual momentum effect exists in the four aforementioned stock markets, whereas there is no evidence for the price momentum.
