Trackinsight: As troops advance in Ukraine, so do energy ETFs

01/28/2022 | 10:15am EDT

Ongoing inflation, tight oil supplies, and growing geopolitical tensions along the Russia-Ukraine border have sent performance skyrocketing.

ETFs focused on the energy sector have attracted over $100 million of new inflows this week as ongoing inflation, tight oil supplies, and growing geopolitical tensions along the Russia-Ukraine border have sent performance skyrocketing. The United States Natural Gas Fund (UNG) led the pack, rising 13.2%, followed by the Van Eck Oil Services ETF (OIH) and the iShares Oil & Gas Exploration ETF (IEO) both up 6%, the John Hancock Multifactor Energy ETF (JHME) rising 5.6%.

While traditional ?dirty? energy ETFs have fared well this week, the same cannot be said of the Alternative Energy Sector, which was the most sold theme in the ETF markets, witnessing investors pull $143 million over the first four days of the week. Performance of the Alternative Energy sector has been disappointing with ETFs falling on average 4.3% this week. The alternative energy sector has been trending down this year with ETFs like the Fidelity Clean Energy ETF falling 16.5% YTD and ALPS Clean Energy ETF (ACES) off by nearly 21%.
