PAIRS TRADE: Buy RDS.A, Short XLE 13% Spread

BATS:RDS.A   ROYAL DUTCH SHELL PLC
376 2 2
PAIRS TRADE:
Buy RDS.A            
Sell XLE            

BUY RDS.A             (lagging by 13% over 18 months) 65.65 last
SELL SHORT XLE             (ahead by 13% over 18 months) 79.27 last

Tight correlation for the last year and a half and lately Royal Dutch Shell has lagged by 13%. With a large dividend yield, north of 5%, providing some valuation support, this spread could close for a gain of 13%. However, I will look for half of that gain or 6.5% and I think risking 5% to capture this profit opportunity.
