Following The Money With Asbury Research is a free podcast and report that we use to stay in contact with individuals and businesses that have expressed interest in our research and services, and to educate them on our data-driven approach to investing.  Contact Us to request additional information. 

This bi-weekly podcast provides the latest update and overview of our data-driven models:

  • the Asbury 6 for Tactical Risk Management
  • the Correction Protection Model (CPM) for Wealth Preservation
  • the SEAF (Sector ETF Asset Flows) Model for Sector Rotation
  • the CARP (Cross Asset Relative Performance) Model for Domestic Asset Allocation
  • the US vs. The World Model for Global Asset Allocation

These models collectively answer the two most important questions for investors:

  1. when to be invested, and
  2. where to be invested.

Our Latest “Following The Money” Market Metric To Watch

In addition to our bi-weekly Following The Money Podcast, we also choose one chart, Asbury Research model, or data series and accompanying excerpt from our premium research that we believe may best reflect the current condition of the US financial market.  

This week we selected our “Rainbow Chart” for the for Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLE), which achieved buy/overweight status according to our SEAF Model on July 31st and has since risen by 5% outright while outperforming the benchmark S&P 500 (SPY) by 8%

The line in the upper panel of the Rainbow Chart below displays XLE’s weekly scores over the past year within the context of being Favored (3-15, green)Neutral (16-24, yellow), or Avoid (25-33, red) and also displays the trend of asset flows as the money moves in and out of these sectors.  The lower panel plots the corresponding weekly relative performance chart of XLE versus the S&P 500 (SPY).

The green highlights on the right edge of the chart below show that the SEAF Model Ranking Score for XLE moved into Favored territory (upper panel) in late July and, with just two brief exceptions, has remained there since.  This chart is a good example of how positive investor asset flows, as indicated by the SEAF Model, are a coincident if not leading indication of outright strength and relative sector outperformance versus the S&P 500 (lower panel).
