Stocks continue climb ahead of Q2 GDP report

Posted on August 17, 2016

LOCAL SHARES maintained their slow trek upwards on Tuesday, two days before the government releases economic growth numbers for the second quarter, which analysts expect to stay within forecast.

Yesterday, the Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) gained 23.21 points or 0.29% to 7,983.38.

The all-shares index lost 32.05 points or 0.67% to 4,713.6.

“A lot of analysts are trying to aim for 7% for the second quarter, so expectations are high again,” said Luis A. Limlingan, business development head at Regina Capital Development Corp.

Ahead of the gross domestic product (GDP) results, he said the market should be moving sideways.

“It’s going to trade sideways. Probably sell the companies that under-performed during the quarter and buy the ones that performed well,” he said.

Four of the six sectoral indices advanced, led by mining and oil, which went up by 263.53 points or 2.62% to 10,304.29 after repeated beating in the last few days following uncertainties in the sector with the suspension order imposed on several mining projects.

Financials also closed higher by 24.71 points or 1.35% to 1,849.05 while services gained 21.36 points or 1.34% to 1,615.53. Holding firms rose by 37.04 points or 0.47% to 7,849.69.

Mr. Limlingan said investors had already discounted the impact of a 7% GDP growth, thus the market might continue moving sideways should the figure stay just within forecast.

“I think it has to be well above 7% because I think it is already being discounted by a lot of people. Of course, if it is closer to 8% then I’m sure the index will go past 8,100,” he said.

Trading value moved up a bit to P10.92 billion, about 5% higher than the previous day’s P10.42 billion.

A total of 107 stocks advanced, 75 declined while 59 finished unchanged.

Net foreign selling went up to P759.22 million yesterday from Monday’s P544.95 million.

“Expectations of a high GDP number on the back of election-related spending could push the market back above the 8,000 level,” said Jonathan L. Ravelas, BDO Unibank, Inc. chief market strategist.

Joylin F. Telagen, research head at IB Gimenez Securities, said a better-than-expected GDP figure could push the index to an all-time high of around 8,200.

“The GDP result on Thursday will determine market direction,” she said. “Downside risk will pull the index back to 7,800.”

Like the movement in local shares, most Southeast Asian stock markets also rose on Tuesday, in line with Asia, aided by gains in oil prices overnight and on expectations of an extended phase of monetary easing after downbeat economic data from major economies.

Most countries are easing their monetary policies, with Britain, Australia and New Zealand cutting rates in recent weeks and Japan stepping up purchases of exchange-traded funds. — V.V. Saulon with Reuters
