For investors seeking momentum, Vanguard Energy ETF VDE is probably on radar. The fund just hit a 52-week high and is up about 181% from its 52-week low price of $72.20/share.
But are more gains in store for this ETF? Let’s take a quick look at the fund and the near-term outlook on it to get a better idea on where it might be headed:
VDE in Focus
Vanguard Energy ETF targets the broad energy sector and has key holdings in integrated oil & gas, and oil & gas exploration & production. It charges investors 10 basis points a year in fees (see: all the Energy ETFs here).
Why the Move?
The energy sector has been an area to watch lately, given an oil price surge. The speculation on China, the world’s second largest oil consumer, relaxing its zero-COVID policy has sent the oil price higher. Additionally, the tight supply conditions continue to support commodity prices.
More Gains Ahead?
Currently, VDE has a Zacks ETF Rank #1 (Strong Buy) with a High risk outlook, suggesting that the outperformance could continue in the months ahead. However, many spaces that make up this ETF have a strong Zacks Industry Rank. So, there is definitely some promise for those who want to ride this surging ETF a little further.
Zacks Names “Single Best Pick to Double”
From thousands of stocks, 5 Zacks experts each have chosen their favorite to skyrocket +100% or more in months to come. From those 5, Director of Research Sheraz Mian hand-picks one to have the most explosive upside of all.
It’s a little-known chemical company that’s up 65% over last year, yet still dirt cheap. With unrelenting demand, soaring 2022 earnings estimates, and $1.5 billion for repurchasing shares, retail investors could jump in at any time.
This company could rival or surpass other recent Zacks’ Stocks Set to Double like Boston Beer Company which shot up +143.0% in little more than 9 months and NVIDIA which boomed +175.9% in one year.
