Stocks up as Fed minutes hint at rate increase

Posted on August 19, 2016

FASTER economic growth for the second quarter hardly moved the market on Thursday, with the Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) closing with minimal gains even if the print surpassed expectations, with investors focusing instead on external developments.

The PSEi inched up by 6.62 points or 0.08% to 7,952.81 while the all-shares index rose by 10.47 or 0.22% to 4,707.58.

Nisha S. Alicer, chief equity analyst at DA Market Securities, Inc., said she would attribute the flat movement to “a mix of profit taking and positioning in index stocks.”

“Market didn’t move,” said Joseph Y. Roxas, president of Eagle Equities, Inc.

Earlier in the day, online company said the market might focus on the latest gross domestic product (GDP) report as this would be the basis of the overall health of the local economy.

The Philippine Statistics Authority said the 7% GDP growth during the quarter was driven by the services sector, particularly trade, real estate and other services. The rise was better than the 5.9% registered in the same quarter last year.

The services sector expanded by 8.4% while industry grew by 6.9%. The figures were an improvement over last year’s 6.7% and 6.1%, respectively. Agriculture declined by 2.1%, deeper than the 0.1% recorded a year earlier.

DA Market’s Ms. Alicer said the GDP print was higher than the market’s expectation of 6.6%, and came amid the release of the minutes of the US Federal Reserve meeting that showed an 18% possibility of an interest rate increase in September as against 45% in December.

She said the Fed minutes prompted a “risk-off sentiment.” She added that foreign selling had been observed recently.

Among the subindices, industrial stocks along with holding firms and the mining and oil sector finished higher.

On the other hand, financials, services and property retreated.

Yesterday, foreign selling outpaced buying, resulting in net sales of P531.82 million worth of shares, lower than Wednesday’s net selling of P998.45 million.

Total trading value yesterday declined by 12% to P8.33 billion from P9.47 billion the other day.

Losers outnumbered gainers, at 109 to 80, while 51 stocks closed unchanged.

Ms. Alicer said International Container Terminal Services, Inc. sold off after a six-day rally to finish at P82 per share, lower by 3.53%. In contrast, she noted a pick up in the shares of Universal Robina Corp. (URC) after a recent sell-off and the news of an acquisition.

On Wednesday, URC told the stock exchange that its wholly owned offshore subsidiary will acquire 100% of Australia’s Consolidated Snacks Pty Ltd., owner of the brand Snack Brands for A$600 million. URC was the most active stock yesterday followed by SM Prime Holdings, Inc., GT Capital Holdings, Inc., PLDT, Inc. and Cemex Holdings Philippines, Inc. — V.V. Saulon
