Five ETFs to Watch This Week

Stocks in this article: FDN BKF MOO FEZ PALL

The seed giant sits at the top of MOO's index, representing over 8% of the fund's total assets. Fellow household names hailing from the farming industry, including Potash of Saskatchewan (POT), Deere (DE) and Archer-Daniels-Midland (ADM) can also be found among the fund's top holdings.

MOO saw rocky action during the latter half of 2011. The fund's success in the opening weeks of 2012 will likely depend on whether troubled global regions can work out their macroeconomic issues.

SPDR S&P EURO STOXX 50 ETF (FEZ)

The global markets do not reset with the start of a new calendar year. The patience and level-headedness required to navigate choppy waters in 2011 will again be needed in the months ahead.

While I encourage investors looking to construct an international portfolio to remain hesitant towards the troubled European continent, funds like FEZ and iShares S&P Europe 350 Index Fund (IEV) are still worth keeping an eye on.

ETFS Physical Palladium Shares (PALL)

The auto and truck sales reports slated to come through the pipeline on Wednesday will likely impact the performance of ETFs linked to the platinum group of metals. Palladium and platinum are used extensively in the production of catalytic converters, and therefore benefit as more cars drive off the lot.

Other components of the precious metals spectrum will be interesting to watch as well. Given its challenges during the final weeks of 2011, gold will likely be on the minds of many.
