Hot Performing Stocks To Watch Right Now

The energy sector is shedding its laggard status in a big way. Last month, energy was the best-performing sector in the S&P 500 by a substantial margin. Even traditional energy exchange traded funds, which are typically heavy on a small amount of integrated oil stocks, delivered double-digit April returns.

Some ETFs dedicated to energy sub-industry groups, such exploration and production and oil services, are delivering stellar second-quarter returns. That includes the iShares U.S. Oil Equipment & Services ETF (NYSE: IEZ).

What Happened

Since the start of the second quarter, IEZ is up more than 18 percent, outpacing traditional energy ETFs as well as the United States Oil Fund (NYSE: USO). The $235.33-million IEZ tracks the Dow Jones U.S. Select Oil Equipment & Services Index and holds 35 stocks.

“For investors seeking exposure to oil today, we see a stronger case for investing in energy equities over crude itself or energy-related debt,” BlackRock said in a recent note. “Oil prices have run well ahead of energy stocks this year, but this trend has started to turn. One factor supporting energy firms: their focus on capital discipline, evident in first-quarter earnings results. Unlike in some past oil market rallies, companies are not making huge investments in future production. Instead, they are using free cash flow to return capital to shareholders via increased buybacks and dividends.”
