The Day Hagan/Ned Davis Research Smart Sector® with Catastrophic Stop strategy entered this month recommending a fully invested position. 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 is overweight Information Technology, Consumer Discretionary, and Energy. Health Care improved to marketweight. Communication Services, Materials, Industrials, and Real Estate dropped to underweight. Financials, Consumer Staples, and Utilities remained at underweight.
