Stocks slump as Doha oil supply freeze talks fail

LOCAL STOCKS tumbled at the start of the week, tracking the weakness in regional markets, as crude oil plunged after major producers failed to reach a deal to cut production amid a global supply glut.

The bellwether Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) lost 77.90 points or 1.06% to close at 7,243.40 — near the session’s low — that extended the main gauge’s slump to a second straight session.

The all-shares index shed 42.48 points or 0.98% to end at 4,272.19.

“Share prices tanked, extending Friday’s losses, as mood was dampened by a stalemate in Doha summit among the world’s oil producers. Oil prices dropped below $40 per barrel,” Justino B. Calaycay, Jr., head of marketing and research at A&A Securities, Inc., said in a client note yesterday.

“Last week, investors were positioning for a production freeze at January levels so when talks in Doha broke down, oil plunged and equities followed. We are back to the situation in January and mid-February when we tracked the ups and downs of oil,” Victor F. Felix, equity analyst at AB Capital Securities, Inc., said in a phone interview.

Asian markets faltered on Monday after talks between 18 oil-exporting nations over the weekend in Doha collapsed when Saudi Arabia demanded that Iran also agree to trim its oil output. The development will revive oil industry fears that major producers are embarking again on a battle for market share, especially after Riyadh threatened to raise output steeply if no freeze deal were reached. Brent crude oil was down 4% to $41.33 a barrel.

The slower growth in corporate earnings for the entire 2015 also contributed to the sell-off.

“PSEi core earnings grew only by 5% year on year versus 10% growth in the same period last year,” Joylin F. Telagen, equity analyst at IB Gimenez Securities, said in a mobile phone message.

Property plunged 58.21 points or 1.93% to 2,952.94, leading all counters in negative territory.

Likewise, services fell 21.49 points or 1.38% to 1,526.23; industrial dropped 138.64 points or 1.16% to 11,730.37; financials slid 18.39 points or 1.12% to 1,620.47; mining and oil went down 100.98 points or 0.94% to 10,603.33; and holding firms slipped 35.77 points or 0.49% to 7,190.07.

Value turnover thinned to P5.31 billion after 1.01 billion shares changed hands, from P6.18 billion recorded last Friday.

Decliners dominated advancers, 126 to 52, while 49 issues were unchanged.

Foreign investors ended a four-day sell-off, with net purchases of P186.46 million logged yesterday — a reversal of the net sales amounting to P378.10 million in the prior session.

“I expect the index to trade lower around 7,200 within the next two weeks before the Federal Reserve meeting on April 26-27. If it breaks, I am looking at 7,000,” IB Gimenez Securities’ Ms. Telagen said. — with Reuters
