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.

The sector model began to shift toward a mix of cyclical and defensive leadership during the month. Entering July, the sector model is overweight cyclical sectors such as Information Technology, Consumer Discretionary, and Industrials, as well as defensive sectors like Health Care and Utilities. Energy, Communication Services, and Real Estate moved to marketweight. Materials, Financials, and Consumer Staples remain underweight.

Thoughts From The Divide: Bumps and Jumps

BY JON WEBB
At the risk of sounding like we’re going soft on Jerry and his pirate crew of crack forecasters, one might almost feel bad for the folks at the Eccles building. Despite their manifest belief that current real rates are restrictive, the economic “party goers” seem to be finding it very easy to keep going with the available supplies of punch. The takeaway seems to be that it’s hard to stop a party when fiscal policy keeps adding to the punchbowl. Grannie Yellen seems to love a booze up, followed by a Chinese banquet, and if we were honest, we might admit that’s pretty much been our MO for the last 15 years Read more →
