Portfolio optimization typically looks at minimizing portfolio volatility, or maximizing the portfolio's Sharpe ratio (risk-adjusted return), but are there any recent, reasonable approaches to maximizing cumulative returns of a portfolio? If so, how do these portfolios perform out of sample? Is this objective distinct from maximizing expected returns, given that asset means are difficult to predict, and also distinct from portfolios from Kelly's criterion?
