PSE index inches higher ahead of Q2 GDP report

By Victor V. Saulon, Sub-Editor

Posted on August 16, 2016

THE PHILIPPINE Stock Exchange index (PSEi) on Monday inched up during the last day of the reporting period for second-quarter earnings and ahead of the release of the gross domestic product (GDP) on Thursday.

The PSEi rose 4.31 points or 0.05% to 7,960.17 yesterday, recouping early losses. The all-shares index also gained 22.83 points or 0.48% to 4,745.65.

Joylin F. Telagen, research head at IB Gimenez Securities, said investors cashed in their gains during early trading hours after Japan’s GDP result missed expectations.

Japan is the country’s largest export destination, she said, accounting for 21% of total merchandise shipments. Its GDP rose by an annualized 0.2% in the second quarter, or below the 0.7% growth economists expected, as business spending contracted.

“However at the close, PSEi ended flat,” Ms. Telagen said, pointing to investors who bought back oversold stocks such as Semirara Mining and Power Corp. (SMPC).

Shares in the Consunji-led company closed higher by 1.19% to P102 each after falling towards the end of last week after the Department of Environment and Natural Resources questioned its open-pit mine on Semirara Island in Antique province.

“Before the [Philippine] GDP result, I think PSEi will consolidate around 8,000 level,” Ms. Telagen said. said some investors might be waiting on the sidelines until the release of the quarterly economic data to get a glimpse on the direction of the local market.

“As investors wait for the major news of the week, we see that the market to trade within a range,” it said.

Subindices were mixed yesterday. Property shares posted the biggest gains at 42.39 points or 1.16% to 3,688.13, followed by the mining and oil index, which moved higher by 90.99 points or 0.91% to 10,040.76. Holding firms also advanced by 28.52 points or 0.37% to 7,812.65 while services gained 3.28 points or 0.21% to 1,594.17.

On the hand, the financials and industrial counters slipped by less than 1%.

Total trading value reached P10.42 billion yesterday, slightly higher than Friday’s P10.1 billion.

More stocks declined at 108 against 87 advancers, while 49 closed unchanged.

Foreign investors sold more stocks than they bought resulting in a net selling of P544.95 million worth of shares, more than Friday’s net outflow worth P73.20 million.

A BusinessWorld poll of 12 economists and analysts bared a median GDP growth estimate of 6.8% for the April-to-June period, faster than the upwardly revised 5.8% recorded a year ago but slower than the 6.9% logged in 2016’s first quarter.

The online arm of F. Yap Securities, Inc. placed the PSEi’s immediate support at 7,930 and the resistance level at 8,030.
