Dion's Tuesday ETF Winners and Losers

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- 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

PowerShares DB Agriculture ETF (DBA) 2.0%

Agriculture crop prices continue to ramp higher, leading DBA to strong gains. On Tuesday, sugar prices were leading the way. The iPath Dow Jones UBS Sugar Total Return Subindex ETN (SGG) is up 3.9%.

Agriculture has certainly become an exciting industry to watch and will likely continue to be in the near future. Investors can use DBA to gain exposure to the sector via crop prices, while Market Vectors Agribusiness ETF (MOO) is suitable for investors looking to play agriculture-related equities.

PowerShares Dynamic Networking Portfolio (PXQ) 1.1%

VMWare (VMW) and Citrix (CTXS) are scoring some of the strongest gains among PXQ's top positions today. Both firms are up over 2%.

Intel (INTC) is scheduled to release its earnings report after the markets close today. Therefore, tech stocks will be interesting to watch as we close in on 4 p.m.

iShares MSCI Turkey Investable Market Index Fund (TUR) 1.1%

Athough today's mixed markets are not producing many international winners, iShares Turkey is enjoying some of the strongest gains of the day. This European nation has been on a tear for over a month as investors seek out international exposure outside of developed regions such as the U.S. and E.U.

Losers

iShares MSCI South Korea Index Fund (EWY) -1.6%

South Korea's markets are slumping today after a less than optimistic earnings report from steel giant Posco (PKX). In the most recent quarter, the firm saw its profit decrease by nearly 9% from a year earlier.

The pressure from PKX weighed on the Market Vectors Steel ETF (SLX) as well. Posco is the fund's fourth largest holding, accounting for 7% of its total assets.

Other Asia-focused ETFs taking hits today are WisdomTree India Earnings ETF (EPI)), iShares MSCI Taiwan Index Fund (EWT), and Market Vectors Vietnam ETF (VNM).

iShares MSCI Australia Index Fund (EWA) -1.0

The broad materials industry is lagging today, weighing on the miner-heavy Australia ETF. This sector accounts for over a quarter of the fund's index.

Funds designed to track miners and metals of all sorts are taking a shot. Some of the biggest decliners are Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (GDXJ), ETFS Physical Palladium Shares (PALL), and SPDR S&P Metals & Mining ETF (XME).
