  1. It may be a reflection of research received by CALPERS, et. al. SO it is a bit more than nothing, since it is a substantial divergence.

  2. Looking at the make up of XTN there is a significant exposure to the price of fuel (trucking, shipping, airlines). As fuel price increases, driven by underlying oil price rally, these businesses will do less well. There is a very rough inverse correlation to USO but that is a rough and ready comparison. Ideally you would compare to a basket of refined products to nail down the correlation to fuel price movement. Is this indicating that when oil price rises, economic growth reduces/stagnates and the transportation sector is the canary in the coal mine?
