    Did Oil ETFs Underperform WTI Prices Last Week?

    Energy's Performance Last Week—and What's on the Agenda This Week (Continued from Prior Part) ## Oil-tracking ETFs Between January 4 and January 11, the United States Oil ETF (USO), the United States 12-Month Oil ETF (USL), and the ProShares Ultra Bloomberg Crude Oil ETF (UCO) rose 7.1%, 6.2%, and 14.4%, respectively. These ETFs track US crude oil futures. USO holds active US crude oil futures, while USL holds US crude oil futures deliverable for each of the next 12 months. UCO tracks daily changes in the Bloomberg WTI Crude Oil Subindex. USO and USL underperformed US crude oil February futures, which rose 7.6% last week. Higher oil prices can boost oil-weighted stocks. Whiting Petroleum (WLL), Hess Corporation (HES), and Callon Petroleum (CPE), the strongest oil-weighted stocks, rose 10.9%, 12.2%, and 16%, respectively, last week. ## Long-term returns and the forward curve Between February 11, 2016, and January 11, 2019, US crude oil active futures rose 96.8% from their 12-year low. USO, USL, and UCO rose 36.4%, 41.6%, and 29.3%, respectively. A negative roll yield, which occurs when expiring futures contract prices are lower than the following month’s futures contract prices, may have caused the lower returns. UCO’s actual and expected returns could also be different due to daily price changes.  In a cost-of-carry model, ETFs’ underperformances due to negative roll yields reflect storage costs. On January 11, US crude oil futures for delivery between February and August 2019 closed in ascending order, which could be a negative sign for these ETFs’ returns.

    Where US Crude Oil Might Head Next Week

    What's Impacting Your Energy Portfolio Gain? (Continued from Prior Part) ## Oil’s implied volatility On January 10, US crude oil’s implied volatility was 40%, which was ~25% below its 15-day average. Usually, lower implied volatility might support oil prices. You can see the inverse relationship between oil prices and oil’s implied volatility in the following chart. Since reaching a 12-year low in February 2016, US crude oil active futures have risen ~100.6%. Crude oil’s implied volatility has fallen ~46.8% since February 11, 2016. ## Price forecast On January 11–18, US crude oil futures should close between $49.89 and $55.29 per barrel 68.0% of the time. The forecast is based on crude oil’s implied volatility of 40% and assumes a normal distribution of prices. On January 10, US crude oil February futures rose 0.4% and settled at $52.59 per barrel. The factors that we discussed in Part 1 might pull US crude oil close to this level. Any changes in oil could be a positive development for equity indexes like the S&P 500 Index (SPY) and the Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DIA). The sentiments in the oil and equity markets are often related. In the previous part of this series, we analyzed the relationship between oil and the equity market. ## Impact on ETFs These price limits could be important for oil-tracking ETFs like the ProShares Ultra Bloomberg Crude Oil ETF (UCO) and the United States 12-Month Oil ETF (USL). In the trailing week, US crude oil February futures rose 11.7%, UCO rose 23.5%, and USL rose 10.2%.

    Futures Spread: Less Bearish Sentiments for Oil?

    Will Oil Shift to a Higher Gear? (Continued from Prior Part) ## Futures spread On January 7, US crude oil February 2019 futures closed ~$3.1 below the February 2020 futures. On December 31, the futures spread was at a discount of ~$3.2. On December 31–January 7, US crude oil February futures rose 6.8%. ## Bearish sentiments reduced for oil The market sentiment towards the oil demand and supply situation is reflected in the futures spread. A contraction in the discount is usually accompanied by a rise in oil prices. In the last four trading sessions, the spread’s discount contracted and US crude oil prices rose by nearly seven percentage points. China’s dialogue with the US about the trade war and the fall in the US oil rig count, which we discussed in Part 2, might have supported oil prices. With inventories 8% above their five-year average, there might be an expansion in the discount going forward. ## Energy stocks On December 31–January 7, oil-weighted stocks California Resources (CRC), Callon Petroleum (CPE), and Denbury Resources (DNR) rose 20.2%, 21.6%, and 28.7%, respectively, and outperformed their peers. ## Forward curve As of January 7, US crude oil futures contracts for delivery for the next year were priced in ascending order. The price pattern is a negative sign for ETFs that follow US crude oil futures like the ProShares Ultra Bloomberg Crude Oil ETF (UCO) and the United States 12 Month Oil ETF (USL).

These ETFs track US crude oil futures. USO holds active US crude oil futures, while USL holds US crude oil futures deliverable for each of the next 12 months. UCO tracks daily changes in the Bloomberg WTI Crude Oil Subindex. USO and USL outperformed US crude oil February futures, which rose 5.8% last week. Higher oil prices can boost oil-weighted stocks. California Resources (CRC), Callon Petroleum (CPE), and Denbury Resources (DNR), the strongest oil-weighted stocks, rose 14%, 14%, and 27.3%, respectively, last week. ## Long-term returns and forward curve Between February 11, 2016, and January 4, 2018, US crude oil active futures rose 83% from their 12-year low. USO, USL, and UCO rose 27.4%, 33.3%, and 13%, respectively. A negative roll yield, which occurs when expiring futures’ contract prices are lower than the following month’s futures contract prices, may have caused the lower returns.
