Best/Worst Weekly ETF Returns: THD Spikes 12.19%

IndexUniverse.com

Single-country ETFs outperformed during the week ending Thursday, June 27, while metals and mining funds and natural gas funds lagged.

The S'P 500 rallied 25.01 points, or 1.57 percent, during that same five-day period, closing at 1,613.20 at the end of the five-day period.

The iShares MSCI Thailand Capped Investable Market ETF (THD) rose 12.19 percent, the best performance of any single fund last week. THD led a group of single-country ETFs, like the iShares MSCI Indonesia Investable Market fund (EIDO) and the iShares MSCI Philippines Investable Market ETF (EPHE), which jumped 11.32 percent and 9.37 percent, respectively.

Meanwhile, mining funds such as the Global X Pure Gold Miners ETF (GGGG) retreated by as much as 9.51 percent, no doubt affected by gold prices dropping under $1,200 per troy ounce, or below production cost. Prices rebounded slightly toward the week’s end, but miners funds still suffered collateral performance lags.

Natural gas lagged as well, and emerging markets funds made an appearance on the week’s worst-performers list, too.
