The Day Hagan/Ned Davis Research Smart Sector® with Catastrophic Stop strategy entered this month recommending a fully invested allocation. The NDR Catastrophic Stop model is based on the combination of two proprietary composites: 1) the Internal Composite (technical and price-related indicators) and 2) the External Composite (fundamental, economic, interest rate, and behavioral/sentiment indicators). Each composite is one-half of the overall score.

Entering January, the sector model continued to overweight Value areas such as Energy, Materials, and Financials, as well as defensive sectors such as Utilities and Health Care. Industrials, Real Estate, and Communication Services entered the month below benchmark allocation. Consumer Discretionary remains significantly below benchmark weighting.
