    Natural Gas ETFs Outperformed Natural Gas Last Week

    Energy's Performance Last Week—and What's on the Agenda This Week (Continued from Prior Part) ## Natural gas ETFs Between January 4 and January 11, the United States Natural Gas ETF (UNG) rose 4%, while the ProShares Ultra Bloomberg Natural Gas ETF (BOIL) rose 5.9%. These ETFs track natural gas futures. UNG holds active natural gas futures contracts, while BOIL tracks daily changes in the Bloomberg Natural Gas Subindex. UNG has outperformed natural gas February futures, which have risen 1.8% in the past five trading sessions. Gains in natural gas prices can be positive for natural gas–weighted stocks. Range Resources (RRC), Southwestern Energy (SWN), Gulfport Energy (GPOR), and Chesapeake Energy (CHK), the strongest natural gas–weighted stocks, rose 7.6%, 11.5%, 11.6%, and 20.9%, respectively, last week. ## Long-term returns and the forward curve Between March 3, 2016, and January 11, 2019, natural gas active futures rose 89.1% from their 17-year low, while UNG and BOIL returned 12.7% and -38%, respectively. Since March 3, 2016, UNG and BOIL have delivered lower returns than natural gas active futures, possibly due to a negative roll yield.  BOIL’s actual and expected returns could also be different due to daily price changes. As of January 11, natural gas futures for delivery between February and May 2019 closed in descending order, which could be a positive sign for these ETFs’ returns.

  • Natural Gas Futures Spread Is Showing Interesting Divergence

    Natural Gas Futures Spread Is Showing Interesting Divergence

    Will Natural Gas Stay above $3? (Continued from Prior Part) ## Futures spread On January 8, the natural gas futures for February 2019 closed at a discount of ~$0.07 to the February 2020 futures. On December 31, the futures spread was at a discount of $0.06. Between December 31 and January 8, the natural gas February futures rose 0.9%. ## Divergence The market sentiment toward natural gas’s demand-supply situation is reflected in the futures spread. The futures spread and natural gas prices tend to move in the same direction. In the trailing week, the futures spread discount expanded. However, natural gas prices rose nearly one percentage point. Usually, the expansion in the discount will be followed by a retreat in prices. The gain in prices could be because of the expectation of colder weather later this month, which we discussed in part one. In the previous part, we discussed that the negative difference between natural gas inventories and their five-year average contracted, a factor that might have pushed the discount higher. ## Energy stocks The natural gas February futures rose 0.9% in the trailing week. During this period, natural-gas-weighted stocks Range Resources (RRC), Chesapeake Energy (CHK), Gulfport Energy (GPOR), and Southwestern Energy (SWN) rose 14.9%, 16.7%, 17.1%, and 20.5%, respectively, and outperformed their peers. ## Forward curve As of January 8, the natural gas futures contracts for delivery between February and May 2019 were priced in descending order, which is a positive development for ETFs that follow natural gas futures including the ProShares Ultra Bloomberg Natural Gas ETF (BOIL) and the United States Natural Gas ETF (UNG).

These ETFs track natural gas futures. UNG holds active natural gas futures contracts, while BOIL tracks daily changes in the Bloomberg Natural Gas Subindex. UNG has underperformed natural gas February futures, which have fallen 7.8% in the past four trading sessions. Lower natural gas prices could be negative for natural gas–weighted stocks. Cabot Oil & Gas (COG), Chesapeake Energy (CHK), Gulfport Energy (GPOR), and Southwestern Energy (SWN), the weakest natural gas–weighted stocks, rose 0.8%, 4.7%, 7.3%, and 10.5%, respectively, last week. All natural gas–weighted stocks rose. ## Long-term returns and forward curve Between March 3, 2016, and January 4, 2018, natural gas active futures rose 85.7% from their 17-year low, while UNG and BOIL returned 8.3% and -41.4%, respectively. Since March 3, 2016, UNG and BOIL have delivered lower returns than natural gas active futures, possibly due to a negative roll yield.

    What to Expect from Natural Gas Next Week

    What to Expect from Natural Gas Next Week ## Natural gas’s implied volatility On January 3, natural gas’s implied volatility was 52.6%, which was ~26.6% below its 15-day moving average. In the trailing week, natural gas’s implied volatility fell 20.5%. Natural gas’s February futures fell 16.9% during the same period. Since June 2018, these two metrics have been moving in tandem. ## Natural gas prices and the weather forecast Based on natural gas’s implied volatility of 52.6% and assuming a normal distribution of prices, natural gas futures are expected to close between $2.75 and $3.14 per MMBtu 68.0% of the time until January 11. On January 3, natural gas February futures fell 0.4% to $2.945 per MMBtu. However, the weather forecast suggests colder weather after January 11, which might push natural gas to the upper limit of our price forecast. Today, the EIA reported a fall of 20 Bcf (billion cubic feet) in natural gas inventories for the week ended December 28. The fall was 27 Bcf less than Reuters’ analyst expectations. ## Impact on ETFs and stocks These price limits could be important for ETFs that follow natural gas futures. In the trailing week, the ProShares Ultra Bloomberg Natural Gas ETF (BOIL) fell 29%. Natural gas prices fell 16.9% during the same period. Natural-gas-weighted stocks Southwestern Energy (SWN), Cabot Oil & Gas (COG), Range Resources Corporation (RRC), and Antero Resources (AR) have fallen 1.1%, 1.6%, 2.4%, and 3.1%, respectively, in the trailing week. These stocks underperformed other natural-gas-weighted stocks in the trailing week.
