Dion's Tuesday ETF Winners and Losers

Stocks in this article: KREEWINLR

Welcome to Don Dion's Daily ETF Winners and Losers. Be sure to stop by each day to get a feel of who's winning and who's losing when it comes to ETFs.

Winners

SPDR KBW Regional Banking ETF (KRE) 1%

The financial industry is scoring gains today, lead by the smaller, regional players. FirstMerit (FMER) is leading KRE's portfolio higher, up over 7% in early afternoon trading thanks to second-quarter profits that beat analyst expectations.

FMER is KRE's eleventh largest holding, representing 2.5% of the fund's total portfolio.

iShares MSCI Italy Index Fund (EWI) 1.6%

The euro's strength is helping to power ETFs that track the most volatile members of the bloc higher. EWI and iShares MSCI Spain Index Fund (EWP) are two of the strongest international-focused ETFs today.

EWI's recent strength has helped the fund recover back towards levels at the start of May. Despite this strong run, investors should continue to look elsewhere for international exposure. Europe remains a volatile area.

Market Vectors Nuclear Energy ETF (NLR) 1.5%

The nuclear energy ETF is heading higher today with uranium miners such as Cameco (CCJ) and Uranium One taking the lead.

Over the past few days NLR has seen a good amount of strength, driving the fund back to the highs it reached in June.

Losers

SPDR S&P Metals & Mining ETF (XME) -3.3%

The materials industry has had a nice run the past few days as investors regain some confidence and pour back in the market. On Tuesday, however, funds such as XME, PowerShares DB Base Metals (DBB), Market Vectors Steel ETF (SLX) and Market Vectors Coal ETF (KOL) are taking a breather.

PowerShares DB Precious Metals Portfolio (DBP) -2%

ETFs designed to track the various aspects of the precious metals market are taking a shot today as well. Everything from physical gold and palladium to silver miners are treading along in negative territory as the market faces jitters.

DBP is unique because it tracks a basket of gold and silver futures contracts.
