Oil- and gas-related exchange-traded funds were among the top performers of Monday's market, as crude futures rebounded from Friday's selloff.

The front-month crude contract was trading up 72 cents to $65.48 Monday afternoon, after Iran's oil minister said OPEC had no plans to increase supply to the market before September. Crude futures plummeted more than $2 a barrel Friday, after a cyclone in the Persian Gulf largely spared the region's oil infrastructure of major damage.
