My Favorite Quote From Wes's Book 'Quantitative Momentum':
“Remarkably, while modern-day academics refocused on the concepts of stock selection momentum, many practitioners continued to be stuck in a time warp. The reasons for this regressive behavior are likely related to the practitioner training pipeline. The academics, who train all the MBAs that go on to manage portfolios, were still being taught portfolio mathematics so they could solve asset allocation decisions. Stock picking training was a waste of time because it was a sucker's game under a strict interpretation of the EMH.”
