Energy-related exchange-traded funds were among few winners Friday, as crude oil rose to a near 10-month high amidst more fears of a strike in Nigeria.

The front-month crude contract was recently up 67 cents to $69.32 a barrel. Gasoline was adding 2 cents at $2.27 a gallon.

The iPath S&P Crude Oil Index ( OIL) ETF was gaining 46 cents, or 1.2%, to $38.40. The PowerShares DB Oil ( DBO) was up 23 cents, or 0.9%, to $27.14. The iShares Dow Jones U.S. Oil Equipment Index ( IEZ) was higher by 54 cents, or 0.9%, to $59.02.

The Internet Infrastructure HOLDRs ( IIH) was also higher thanks to gains in two of its holdings. VeriSign ( VRSN) and BEA Systems ( BEAS) were both rising more than 1%. The ETF was gaining 3 cents, or 0.5%, to $5.56.

On the other hand, housing-related ETFs were among the biggest losers of the day. Among housing concerns, Pulte Homes ( PHM) was down 1.6%, Beazer Homes ( BZH) was losing 1.6%, Toll Brothers ( TOL) eased 1.4% and Lennar ( LEN) was lower by 1%.

The SPDR Homebuilders ( XHB) ETF was down 62 cents, or 1.9%, to $31.78. The iShares Dow Jones U.S. Home Construction ( ITB) ETF was recently falling by 59 cents, or 1.8%, at $32.86.

Bundled securities tracking utilities were also among the losers of the session. Among individual names, Southern Co. ( SO), Public Service Enterprise Group ( PEG) and Entergy ( ETR) fell by 1.8% or more.

The Ultra Utilities ProShares ( UPW) was falling by $1.79, or 2.2%, to $79. The Utility HOLDRs ( UTH) was off $1.82, or 1.4%, to $140.09. The Vanguard Utilities ETF ( VPU) eased 93 cents, or 1.4%, to $82.08.
