Abstract—The main reason for studying investment strategies by financial experts is investor’s inability to analyze the available information and lack of expertise in capital markets. Therefore researchers have classified investment strategies from different approaches. One of the most common categories that has been done on this classification, is passive strategies, active strategies and momentum investing. Each of these strategies can be divided into sub-strategies so this means that in advanced capital markets investors don’t need to analyses and select their own stocks, but they need to specify their interest and Preferences which is determined through a specific questionnaire. This mater makes trading in Stock Exchange attractive and cause rational behavior of investors in the market. In This paper we have tried to examine concepts in four major hypotheses. Our Statistical sample is companies listed in Tehran Stock Exchange between (2006-2010).We excluded companies due to high financial leverage, damaging, low trading and inactive situation as well as investment companies.
