Abstract: This paper adds to the evidence of momentum profits in the Chinese stock market by carrying out 16 momentum trading strategies that basically buy “winners” and short “losers” portfolios ranked base on past stock returns over the period of 1993 to 2008. Analysis of the “winners” minus “losers” portfolios reveals significant positive profits on the intermediate 6 - 9 month periods. Buying the “winner” industry and selling the “loser” industry also results in significant momentum profits on the longer term of 9 – 12 months. Further tests conducted within each of the 6 industries produce significant intermediate-term profits within the ‘Properties’, ‘Utilities’ and ‘Industrials’ industries.
