Sonic  (NAS:SONC) 6-1 Month Momentum % Explanation

Momentum investing is a trading strategy in which investors buy securities that are rising and sell before the prices start to go back down. The 6-1 Month Momentum % measures the total return to a stock over the past six months, but ignores the previous month.

The reason why the most recent month’s return dropped related to the short-term reversal effect associated with momentum. There is an academic finding that short-term momentum actually has a reversal effect, whereby the previous winners (measured over the past months) do poorly the next month, while the previous losers do well the next month. In order to eliminate the short-term reversal effect, the previous month return was not included in this calculation.

Sonic Business Description

Sonic logo
Traded in Other Exchanges
Sonic Corp operates and franchises drive-in restaurants throughout the United States. The restaurants typically consist of a building that houses only a kitchen to go along with 16 to 24 parking spaces that have their own payment terminals, intercom speakers, and menu boards. Carhops serve customers in their cars. Many locations also have a drive-thru lane and patio seating as alternatives. Sonic franchises roughly 90% of its restaurants, and the royalty revenue the company earns on franchise sales contributes roughly a quarter of total company revenue. Company-operated stores provide the balance of total revenue. Sonic owns the property on which hundreds of its restaurants are located. For those properties that house franchised stores, franchisees lease from the company.
