WPX Energy Inc A ( WPX) pushed the Energy industry lower today making it today's featured Energy laggard. The industry as a whole closed the day up 0.7%.

WPX Energy, Inc., an independent natural gas and oil exploration and production company, engages in the exploitation and development of unconventional properties. WPX Energy Inc A has a market cap of $3.3 billion and is part of the basic materials sector. Shares are up 10.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday.

TheStreet Ratings rates WPX Energy Inc A as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its compelling growth in net income, increase in stock price during the past year and growth in earnings per share. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that we feel that the company's cash flow from its operations has been weak overall.

On the positive front, Constellation Energy Partners ( CEP), down 12.0%, Cubic Energy ( QBC), down 10.3%, Camac Energy ( CAK), down 8.2% and Apco Oil and Gas International ( APAGF), down 7.4% , were all gainers within the energy industry with Petroleo Brasileiro SA Petrobras ( PBR.A) being today's featured energy industry leader.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the energy industry could consider Energy Select Sector SPDR ( XLE) while those bearish on the energy industry could consider Proshares Short Oil & Gas ( DDG).
