PSE index to move sideways amid lack of drivers

Posted on August 22, 2016

ANALYSTS expect the stock market to continue moving sideways this week if no unexpected developments take place locally and externally days before the end of a month traditionally known for its lackluster trading.

“The ‘ghost month’ for me is not important,” said Harry G. Liu, president of Summit Securities, Inc., referring to a common Chinese belief that August ushers in a slowdown in the financial markets.

He called the “ghost month” as having a merely psychological effect on trading, which he said coincided this year with the lack of fund inflows from Asia.

On Friday, the Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) finished at 7,930.75, lower by 0.32% compared with its close the previous week. It was down 0.28% from Thursday’s close.

On a weekly comparison, the all-shares index also slipped by 0.54% to 4,697.50, with only the mining and oil index and holding firms spared from the decline. Mining and oil stocks rose by 6.15% to 10,562 after suffering in recent weeks amid government actions that appeared unfavorable to miners.

Last week, foreign investors sold more shares than they bought, resulting in a net selling of P3.32 billion worth of shares, a reversal of the earlier week’s net buying of P7.2 billion.

Last week, however, saw gainers outnumbering losers at 108 versus 105, an improvement over the previous week’s 84 to 137 ratio.

“What we need now is more concrete news that will eventually bring it (PSEi) above 8,100,” he said.

The top price gainers were Vitarich Corp., First Abacus Financial Holdings Corp., Integrated Micro-Electronics, Inc., Asiabest Group International, Inc. and Central Azucarera de Tarlace, Inc. The top price loser was PhilWeb Corp.

“What will that be? All the plans that the government is doing,” he said, citing the administration’s planned infrastructure spending that could start in the third or fourth quarter.

“That’s why, [this] week, I feel the market will still be moving up and down, up and down [and] unless something constructive or good comes in then it can try again to make the 8,100,” he said.

Should there be unforeseen negative news, he said he expects a 7,750 support line for the PSEi. For now, he said political and economic conditions were steady and with no “crisis” in sight.

Mr. Liu said he is hopeful that recent developments including the government’s move to ensure peace and order and increase spending “would eventually in the future come into a positive tone.”

Externally, he said he was not expecting any unexpected developments in global markets. He added that the US, which is on a campaign period to elect its next president, would be steady ahead of any interest rate increase in the third or fourth quarter.

Miguel A. Agarao, vice-president Philequity Management, Inc., said the PSEi this week would be headed towards 7,900 “make or break.” — Victor V. Saulon
