Abstract

This paper documents a strong cross-momentum effect among industries that are related to each other along the supply chain. Specifically, trading strategies that buy and sell industries based on respectively high and low past returns in related upstream or downstream industries yield significant profits. Cross-industry momentum is distinct from previously documented stock- and industry-level momentum, and other known return factors.
