The winner/loser hypothesis: some preliminary Australian evidence on the impact of changing risk
The extent of the winner-loser anomaly on the Austalian equities market for the period 1974-91 is examined. Documentation of the contrarian strategy is argued as being invalid unless compensation is made for changing risk premiums through time. The evidence shows a slight reversal for the winner portfolio based on raw returns, but risk adjusted winners continue to be winners and losers persist as losers although the behaviour is not statistically significant.
