Re: Is it late to get into energy sector funds

Since Vanguard's energy sector fund is closed to new investors, I am considering ETFs. Below are my findings:

iShares Goldman Sachs Natural Resourc (IGE)
Energy Select Sector SPDR (XLE)
Dow Jones U.S. Energy Sector Index Fund (IYE)
S&P Global Energy Sector Index Fund (IXC)

It seems that their holdings are very similar with over 60% in oil companies. IGE seems to be a little bit more diversified than the others.

May we live in peace and harmony and be free from all human sufferings.
