PHL shares to remain weak amid lack of catalysts

Posted on December 27, 2016

AFTER STUMBLING to the 6,500 level last week, the main index is expected to remain under pressure as the year comes to a close, with investors likely to stay on the sidelines until a trigger for a rally surfaces.

The Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) closed last week at 6,563.67 points, down 287 points or 4.19% week-on-week.

Global markets dropped after the US central bank’s move to raise benchmark interest rates amid tension involving US, China, and Russia.

As 2016 comes to a close, all eyes are set on 2017 prospects, specifically on the US, following the Federal Reserve’s hint for three more rate hikes this year, coupled with its transition to a new administration.

At home, with only three trading days remaining in the year, analysts said lack of catalysts here and overseas may cause the local market to trade sideways.

“As long as 6,550-6,500 support regions hold, we see the PSEi moving sideways with a slight upward bias this week. However, lack of higher low bases or other reversal patterns will eventually lead to another wave of corrective reactions,” Luis A. Limlingan, managing director at Regina Capital Development Corp., said in a mobile phone message.

“[The] index’s high volatility conditions remain to be a big hurdle coming into this week,” he said.

The analyst noted that the main index will still see intraday swings of up to 100 points which suggests that the 6,460 price target can be hit within one trading day so long as investors find a reversal from the current volatility hunting the market.

“Market volatility can also be utilized when entering short-term positions but we strongly suggest putting tight stops for protection against sudden reversals,” Mr. Limlingan added, noting that a breach of the 6,700 level will indicate a selling trigger for a rally.

“With lack of market catalysts, some stocks might buck the trend as players set their eyes on follow-through of some of government’s pronouncements, particularly on heavily-regulated sectors. For now, investors should wait on the sidelines until clearer policies and regulations are released,” online brokerage said in its weekly outlook report.

The PSEi’s support level for the week is seen at around 6,450 to 6,500, and resistance at 6,650, said, well below its end-2015 close of 6,952.08

Yesterday, in Southeast Asia, Thai shares were headed for a second straight session of gains on robust November trade data showing customs-cleared exports jumped 10.20%, the highest percentage rise for a month since February.

Thailand’s benchmark stock index saw broad-based gains and was up 0.40% as of 0436 GMT, mainly led by industrial, consumer and financial stocks.

Vietnam shares added a paltry 0.36 points and were nearly flat as gains in financials and consumer cyclicals offset losses in consumer staples, the second-biggest sector on the index. — Janina C. Lim with Reuters
