Prophet for Momentum

Open sourced by Meta back in 2017, Prophet is a procedure for forecasting time series data. Here, we give it two years of monthly returns and use it to forecast returns one month forward. The forecasts are ranked and a portfolio is constructed for the forward month.

The results are not as bad as fitting a simple linear model but not that great either.
