Friday's ETF Winners & Losers

Energy-related exchange-traded funds were among few winners Friday, as crude oil rose to a near 10-month high amidst more fears of a strike in Nigeria.

The front-month crude contract was recently up 67 cents to $69.32 a barrel. Gasoline was adding 2 cents at $2.27 a gallon.

The iPath S&P Crude Oil Index (OIL) ETF was gaining 46 cents, or 1.2%, to $38.40. The PowerShares DB Oil (DBO) was up 23 cents, or 0.9%, to $27.14. The iShares Dow Jones U.S. Oil Equipment Index (IEZ) was higher by 54 cents, or 0.9%, to $59.02.

The Internet Infrastructure HOLDRs (IIH) was also higher thanks to gains in two of its holdings. VeriSign (VRSN) and BEA Systems (BEAS) were both rising more than 1%. The ETF was gaining 3 cents, or 0.5%, to $5.56.

On the other hand, housing-related ETFs were among the biggest losers of the day. Among housing concerns, Pulte Homes (PHM) was down 1.6%, Beazer Homes (BZH) was losing 1.6%, Toll Brothers (TOL) eased 1.4% and Lennar (LEN) was lower by 1%.

The SPDR Homebuilders (XHB) ETF was down 62 cents, or 1.9%, to $31.78. The iShares Dow Jones U.S. Home Construction (ITB) ETF was recently falling by 59 cents, or 1.8%, at $32.86.

Bundled securities tracking utilities were also among the losers of the session. Among individual names, Southern Co. (SO), Public Service Enterprise Group (PEG) and Entergy (ETR) fell by 1.8% or more.

The Ultra Utilities ProShares (UPW) was falling by $1.79, or 2.2%, to $79. The Utility HOLDRs (UTH) was off $1.82, or 1.4%, to $140.09. The Vanguard Utilities ETF (VPU) eased 93 cents, or 1.4%, to $82.08.
