Oil has spent much of the fourth quarter slumping, plaguing exchange traded funds like the iShares U.S. Energy ETF (IYE) along the way, but some market observer believe is a bottom is near for the beleaguered commodity. Like other traditional cap-weighted energy ETFs, IYE devotes a significant portion of its lineup to Dow components Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) and Chevron Corp. (CVX), the two largest U.S. oil companies. “One reason oil prices may be near a bottom: production appears set to decline after oversupply concerns contributed to the recent rout,” said BlackRock in a recent note.

Prior to October, the energy sector had been a solid performer this year.
