The main objective of this paper is to seek the source that can explain the momentum profits because the source of momentum profits has been disputed. The secondary objective of the paper is to affirm the findings of pervious authors about the presence of short term momentum effect and reaffirm the notion that CAPM cannot explain momentum profits supported by large number of authors. For the primary objective, a set of variables has been chosen, that fall under the category of “Business Indicators”, to explain the momentum profits. It is found that a variable “Starting a Business” could explain the source of momentum profits whereas other variables may have negligible or no influence over momentum profits. It is also reaffirmed that short term momentum effect has been found in the 14 stock markets and CAPM could not explain the momentum profits. This study is not conclusive due to limitation of data but it does give a source of momentum profits and sheds light on future research about the sources that can explain momentum profits in great detail.
In this book, I am introducing the theories and motivations that contextualize my practice during the course of my 2-year MFA degree. I will start off with an introduction; a brief summary of the events that took place in my country—Egypt, and that instigated my research. In the first chapter, I will investigate the issue of social confinement, and its psychological effect on individuals and groups. The second chapter is an explanation of my visual interpretation of psychological confinement and a closer examination of my artistic work. The third chapter is an analysis and discussion of the conceptual aspects of my use of the term ‘frame,’ in reference to ancient Egyptian mythology and the contemporary term territorialization. The fourth and last chapter is a further application of the notion of territorialization as a critique of street art, as well as a conceptual tool for the investigation of my own practice. I will try to convey the ideological and visual battles that take place between the public and the institution through examples of Egyptian street art and my work.
