Best/Worst Weekly ETF Returns: ICOL Up 10%

ETF.com

A trio of ETFs focused on Colombian equities outperformed most if not all their peers in the week ending Thursday, July 18, with the iShares MSCI Colombia Capped ETF (ICOL) spiking 10.04 percent, the best performance for a single fund.

During that same five-day period ended Thursday, July 18, the S'P 500 climbed 5.91 points, or 0.85 percent, closing Thursday at 1689.37.

In addition to Colombia-centric funds’ performance, solar ETFs, including the Guggenheim Solar ETF (TAN) and the Market Vectors’ Solar Energy ETF (KWT), gained 8.02 percent and 7.92 percent, respectively.

As markets ended the week on a high note, it’s unsurprising that volatility-focused funds—funds designed to jump when markets slump, and retreat when markets rally—lagged behind their peers. The C-tracks Citi Volatility ETN (CVOL) fell 5.23 percent, with three other volatility strategies landing among the top 10 worst performers.

The biggest performance stumble belonged to the PowerShares DB Base Metal Long ETN (BDG), which rolled back 11.52 percent.

The Teucrium Corn (CORN) and Teucrium Wheat (WEAT) funds also slid, as seasonal cycles for the commodities hit a downswing.
