ADRs Best & Worst Report - February 1, 2016

  • The best sector across ADRs is utilities.
  • The top regions are Sub-Saharan Africa, No. America, & Australia/NZ.

The average ADR score is 42.81 and that's up from 40.75 last week and the low of 32.01 on 1/11/2016. The average ADR is trading -33.21% below its 52 week high, -9.99% below its 200 dma, has 3.64 days to cover held short, and is expected to grow EPS by 8.59% in the coming year.

As we've pointed out since early January, average score and the number of ADRs trading more than 5% below their 200 dma can offer helpful clues as to actionable buy points. Historically, an average score below 40 coincides with a short term market low. Similarly, it's also bullish when a significant number of ADRs get more than 5% below their 200 dma.

This first chart shows historical average ADR scores in the post-recession period.

This next chart shows the number of ADRs trading more than 5% below their 200 dma going back to 2008. Readings above 200 have been actionable in the past.
