Friday's ETF Winners & Losers

Bundled securities tracking semiconductors were among the best performers of Friday's session, thanks to an upgrade for chipmaker Intel (INTC).

Goldman Sachs raised its rating for Intel to buy from neutral, sending shares 4% higher. Among other chipmakers, KLA-Tencor (KLAC), Maxim Integrated Products (MXIM) and Applied Materials (AMAT) were up by 1.6% or more.

The Ultra Semiconductor ProShares (USD) ETF added $3.27, or 4%, to $85.30. The Semiconductor HOLDRs (SMH) ETF was 65 cents, or 1.7%, higher at $38.10. The iShares Goldman Sachs Semiconductor (IGW) ETF was climbing 98 cents, or 1.5%, to $66.45. The SPDR S&P Semiconductor (XSD) ETF rose 58 cents, or 1.1%, to $53.30.

Utility-related ETFs were also among the winners of the session. Among individual names, American Electric Power (AEP), Edison International (EIX) and Exelon (EXC) jumped 2.1% or more.

The Ultra Utilities ProShares (UPW) was rising $2.68, or 3.2%, to $85.82. The Utility HOLDRs (UTH) was adding $2.53, or 1.8%, to $145.63. The Vanguard Utilities ETF (VPU) gained $1.34, or 1.6%, to $85.42.

ETFs tracking the energy sector were also rising. The front-month July crude contract overcame early weakness, but was higher by just 6 cents to $67.71 a barrel.

The Ultra Oil & Gas ProShares (DIG) was higher by $2.70, or 2.7%, to $103. The Oil Services HOLDRs (OIH) was adding $2.57, or 1.3%, to $177.92.

On the losing side, the Software HOLDRs (SWH) ETF was among very few decliners Friday, pressured by a 2.3% drop in share of Adobe Systems (ADBE). The ETF was recently down 5 cents, or 0.1%, to $41.52.
