Not so many.

If you consider the sideways notion that very large firms must have been outperformers over time, then "market cap top 4" could sorta count as a momentum screen.
It has been pretty good the last four years, outperforming the S&P by about 8%/year.
It's a very long run underperformer by about 5%/year though. So I wouldn't want to bet on it.

That mismatch probably says something about stock markets in recent times.
To overgeneralize, no simple strategy has done well.
