OIH, IYE, XLE, OSX and XNG

by: Michael McAllister

I am posting three tables today that show the monthly performance of three indexes which are comprised of companies in the energy sector.   Though the primary driver of performance can be attributed to commodity prices there are distinct differences. 

XNG - Is made up of major pipeline companies and large independent E&Ps
OSX -  Oil services (ETF equivalent is the OIH)
XLE -  Heavily weighted to the major integrated companies (ETF equivalent is the IYE)

If the index posts a monthly gain of greater than 3% it will appear GREEN and a loss of 3% will appear RED.

Please click on the table so it will pop up and you will be able to see the whole year.

What do you see?
