Dion's Thursday ETF Winners and Losers

Stocks in this article: EGPTBALPXQEWPEWTGAZ

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

Market Vectors Egypt ETF (EGPT) 4.7%

The Egypt ETF is gaining ground today in anticipation of tonight's address to the nation by President Hosni Mubarak. Many are speculating he will resign, ending his 30-year rule.

Investors should continue to watch EGPT from the sidelines. The fund will continue to trade in an uncertain manner as it continues to struggle with a substantial premium.

iPath Dow Jones UBS Cotton Total Return Subindex ETN (BAL) 5.1%

Agriculture-related commodities are seeing another day of gains as investors continue to seek out ways to access the commodity rally. BAL, the iPath Dow Jones UBS Sugar Total Return Subindex ETN (SGG) and the iPath Dow Jones UBS Livestock Total Return Subindex ETN (COW) are trading in positive territory today.


PowerShares Dynamic Networking Portfolio (PXQ) 1.7%

Cisco (CSCO) is getting battered today following its quarterly earnings report. In response to this company's weakness, rivals in the networking industry are powering higher, pushing PXQ to gains.

Juniper Networks (JNPR), PXQ's largest holding, is up nearly 6% in early afternoon trading.

Losers

iShares MSCI Spain Index Fund (EWP) -2.6%

Spain's marketplace is heading lower today, causing EWP to suffer some of the ETF industry's heaviest losses.

Leading the way lower is top holding Banco Santander. Although it managed to recover some ground lost during the late morning hours, the fund is still down over 3.8% in early afternoon trading

iShares MSCI Taiwan Index Fund (EWT) -2.0%

A number emerging market-related ETFs are struggling today. Those taking the heaviest hits include EWT, Market Vectors Russia ETF (RSX) and SPDR S&P Emerging Europe ETF (GUR).

Today, the Taipei Times highlighted a less-than-optimistic monthly sales report from Hon Hai Precision Industry, EWT's second largest holding, that will likely weigh on the fund's performance.
