Monday's ETF Winners & Losers

On the heels of the weekend's Live Earth concert series around the world, green investors on Monday were bidding up clean energy exchange-traded funds, making them the top performers of the session.

Among green concerns, First Solar (FSLR) jumped nearly 18% on news it entered into five agreements worth $1.3 billion.

The First Trust Nasdaq Clean Edge U.S. Liquid (QCLN) ETF was adding 66 cents, or 2.7%, to $25.25. The PowerShares WilderHill Clean Energy (PBW) ETF was up 44 cents, or 2%, to $21.99. The Market Vectors Global Alternative Energy (GEX) was higher by 92 cents, or 2%, to $46.22.

ETFs tracking silver and gold were also among the winners of the session. Silver futures gained 14 cents to $12.90 an ounce. Gold futures were adding $9.20 to $664 an ounce.

The Market Vectors Gold Miners (GDX) rose 45 cents, or 1.1%, to $40.98. The PowerShares DB Gold (DGL) gained 26 cents, or 1%, to $26.16. The PowerShares DB Precious Metals (DBP) ETF was up 26 cents, or 1%, to $25.88. The PowerShares DB Silver (DBS) was higher by 18 cents, or 0.7%, to $25.22.

Among other housing concerns, Meritage Homes (MTH) was lower by 1.6%, Centex (CTX) slipped 1.5%, Beazer Homes (BZH) was losing 1.5% and DR Horton (DHI) was off 1.4%.

Retail-related ETFs were also suffering after Children's Place (PLCE) sank 10% on weaker-than-expected comp sales in July.

Other retails trading lower included Kohl's (KSS), Chico's FAS (CHS), Aeropostale (ARO) and Sears Holdings (SHLD), all of which were falling 1.5% or more.
