The Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLE), an exchange-traded fund (ETF) focusing on the energy sector, continues to play an important role in today's investment landscape. This ETF seeks to provide investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance of publicly traded companies in the Energy Select Sector Index.

XLE offers exposure to the largest U.S. energy firms, including those in oil, gas, consumable fuels, and energy equipment and services industries. The fund is a passively managed Sector Energy ETF, making it an attractive choice for investors looking to gain broad exposure to the energy sector without having to invest directly in individual stocks.

As a modified market-cap-weighted index of U.S. energy companies in the S&P 500, XLE offers exposure to a basket of U.S. energy firms. This approach provides investors diversified exposure to the energy sector, reducing the risk associated with investing in individual stocks.

Chevron Corporation (17.02%)

ConocoPhillips (9.01%)
