Todd Rosenbluth, CFRA's head of ETF and mutual fund research, recommends the Invesco S&P 500 Equal Weight Energy ETF, which provides heavy exposure to energy companies.
"This is equally weighted," Rosenbluth told FOX Business' "The Claman Countdown" Tuesday. "So you get broad exposure to the oil exploration and production companies, the services companies, the refiners, as well as Exxon and Chevron."

Though CRFA is expecting an eventual pullback in the price of oil, Rosenbluth emphasized that the energy companies in the ETF are still extremely profitable.

|BNO||UNITED STS BRENT OIL FD LP UNIT||30.82||-4.90||-13.73%|
"So you’re playing the energy companies as opposed to the price of oil," he adds. "But those energy companies are beneficiaries by higher oil prices and by the need for greater supply to meet that very strong demand that’s out there."
