- The S&P/TSX Venture Energy (Sector) Index is up nearly six per cent year-to-date (YTD)
- LXE has risen 235 per cent in a year
- ISO has gained 8.5 per cent YTD
The S&P/TSX Venture Energy (Sector) Index is up nearly six per cent year-to-date (YTD). In comparison, the S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index has lost over 13 per cent in the same time frame and the S&P/TSX Composite Index is down over two per cent.
It thus may be fair to say that the energy sector has performed decently so far in 2022. However, the Canada stock market, like other stock markets around the world, seems to have hit a bearish phase, the benchmark TSX Composite having lost 5.15 per cent in April.
Amid this volatile market, let’s look at some TSXV energy stocks.
