PSEi declines on Fed comments, foreign selling

Posted on August 18, 2016

LOCAL STOCKS retreated anew on Wednesday as the second-quarter earnings season wrapped up, with companies reporting mixed results just ahead of the release of the country’s economic growth figure for the period.

The Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) closed lower by 37.19 points or 0.46% to 7,946.19.

The all-shares index lost 16.49 points or 0.35% to 4,697.11.

“The market is correcting due to foreign selling and weak earnings from some listed companies,” said Miguel A. Agarao, vice-president Philequity Management, Inc.

“Given its 30% recovery from the bottom of 6,084 this year, the PSEi is ripe for a correction,” he added.

“Foreign selling [is] affecting the market,” said Miko A. Sayo, a trader at Angping & Associates Securities, Inc.

Foreign investors sold P5.48 billion worth of stocks yesterday, which was more than they bought that totaled P4.48 billion, resulting in a net selling of P998.45 million shares. said hawkish comments from a Federal Reserve member likely also caused renewed concerns over a possible Fed rate hike in September, it said in comments before trades closed.

As analysts projected, stocks have been moving sideways so far this week as investors wait on the sidelines ahead of today’s release of the second-quarter gross domestic product (GDP) data. said investors might take their cue from the result afterwards, adding that it expects immediate support at 7,910 with resistance at 8,020.

Angping’s Mr. Sayo projects “critical support” at 7,900, while expecting the quarterly GDP growth to be the same as the first quarter at 6.8%.

Philequity’s Mr. Agarao expects the economy to register a growth above 6%. “Consensus is 6.6%,” he said.

During yesterday’s trading, the services index was the lone sector that managed to close higher as it gained 3.01 points or 0.18% to 1,618.54.

In contrast, mining and oil stocks were again the biggest losers as they retreated by 174.81 points of 1.7% to 10,129.48.

Total trade slipped by 13% to P9.47 billion from P10.92 billion the other day.

Advancers slightly edged out decliners, at 97 against 87, while 54 stocks closed unchanged.

Southeast Asian stock markets also traded slightly lower to flat on Wednesday, as risk appetite eased after comments from US Federal Reserve officials fueled speculations of a rate hike this year.

New York Fed Reserve Bank President William Dudley said a rate hike in September was possible, while Atlanta Fed President Dennis Lockhart said the US economy is likely strong enough for at least one rate increase before the end of 2016, with two a possibility.

Yet, investors were skeptical about the Fed’s willingness to tighten policy as it had ended up keeping rates on hold in June, even after their officials talked up the possibility of rate hikes then. — Victor V. Saulon with Reuters
