The broader all-shares index likewise rose 0.45% or 21.36 points to 4,751.09.
“Amid the silence on geopolitical concerns, we finally saw [first-half] earnings results drive the market,” RCBC Securities analyst Jeffrey Lucero said in a text message yesterday.

The market’s most actively traded stock was Jollibee Foods Corp. (JFC), which gained P14 or 6.22% to close at P239 apiece. “Jollibee, which reported 14% earnings growth earlier this week, accounted for a significant part of the market’s gains,” Mr. Lucero added.

“Philippine stocks traded higher despite a dull market coupled with low volume and a lack of conviction,” Regina Capital Development Corp. Managing Director Luis A. Limlingan said.
