Best/Worst Daily ETF Returns: FGEM Off 5.15%

IndexUniverse.com

The EGShares Financials GEMS (FGEM - News), a fund that invests in large emerging market companies in the financials industry, was No. 1 on IndexUniverse’s “Bottom 10 1-Day Performers” list, with 5.15 percent in losses.

GEMS was one of a number of emerging market funds that fell on Friday, as investors have become concerned about a bubble in developing countries fueled in part by overstretched European lenders.

The db-X MSCI Brazil Currency-Hedged Equity (DBBR - News) was No. 5 on the list, with 3.31 percent in losses. The Market Vectors China (PEK - News) was No. 9 on the list, with 2.84 percent in losses.

The PowerShares KBW Capital Markets Portfolio (KBWC - News), a fund that holds broker-dealers, asset managers, trust and custody banks, was No. 2 on the bottom-performers list, with 4.55 percent in losses—a victim perhaps of increased worries about the implications of JP Morgan’s trading losses last week.

Agriculture-related commodity ETFs also were hit hard on Friday, spurred by concerns about slowing global growth.

The iPath Dow Jones-UBS Cotton Total Return ETN (BAL - News) was No. 3 on the bottom performers list, returning 3.57 percent in losses.

Top Performers

The C-Tracks Exchange-Traded Notes on the Citi Volatility (CVOL - News) was No. 1 on IndexUniverse’s “Top 10 1-Day Performers” list—one of a number of volatility-related funds that benefitted from investor conerns about the stability of the eurozone and the implications of JP Morgan's trading loss.

The iPath S'P 500 VIX Mid-Term Futures ETN (VXZ - News) was No. 4 on the top performers, list with 1.71 percent in gains.

The iPath S'P VIX Short-Term Futures ETN (VXX - News) was No. 6 on the list, with 1.57 percent in gains. The VelocityShares VIX Short Term ETN (VIIX - News) was No. 8 on the list, with 1.42 percent in gains.

Biotech ETFs also surged on Friday, in part due to last week’s announcement by Vertex Pharmaceuticals of a study showing positive results for a new treatment for cystic fibrosis.

The SPDR S'P Biotech ETF (XBI - News) was No. 3 on the top performers list, with 1.75 percent in gains.

Also, the Market Vectors Biotech ETF (BBH - News) was No. 9 on the list, with 1.34 percent in gains. The iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology Index Fund (IBB - News) was No. 10 on the list, with 1.33 percent in gains.
