XOP Is Underperforming Other Energy ETFs

On November 12–19, the SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Exploration & Production ETF (XOP) fell 1.6%—the largest decline among major energy ETFs. A fall of 4.8% in US crude oil prices has either dragged or limited the upside in upstream energy stocks. However, with OPEC and non-OPEC oil producers’ plan to reduce the oil output, US crude oil prices might see an upside.
