PSEi tracks Asian markets’ rally in thin trade

Posted on December 28, 2016

PHILIPPINE SHARES joined Asian stocks that rallied on Tuesday, in thin trade and with little to guide them as most major markets were closed on Monday for Christmas holidays.

The Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) gained 1.44% or 94.53 points to 6,658.20 points. The all-shares index rallied by 1.19% or 48.10 points to 4,070.60 points.

“Opportunistic buying from last week’s rout (for PSE) has kept stock prices afloat today although trading is expected to be thin for the rest of the week as financial markets close out a volatile year,” Ralph Christian G. Bodollo, equity research analyst at RCBC Securities, Inc., said in a mobile message.

Lexter A. Azurin, research head at Unicapital Securities, Inc., said: “We saw a relief rally today after reaching a new low last week. Although volume was very thin.. Most of the investors are still on vacation and stayed on the sidelines.”

“Some of the investors took advantage of some stocks that were beaten down last week,” he said in a text message.

Value turnover amounted to P3.28 billion, lower than Friday’s P6.22 billion, as 491.51 million shares changed hands.

MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was marginally higher, with Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong closed.

Japan’s Nikkei closed little changed.

“It is the time of the year when markets trade with hushed tones,” Jingyi Pan, market strategist at IG, wrote in a note. “The magnitude of moves could remain capped with thin market trades expected to remain the case.”

China’s CSI 300 index was down 0.10% and the Shanghai Composite slipped almost 0.20%, despite positive data released on Tuesday.

Southeast Asian stocks were up, with markets including Indonesia and the Philippines posting gains of as much as 1%.

On Friday, Wall Street closed slightly higher in thin trade.

The lack of catalysts to plough back to the equities enough money to recognize an annual increase by yearend may be challenging for a market that closes towards an uncertain 2017.

“Although mathematically possible, the index need to climb 300 points to end in the green for 2016 making it rather difficult,” Regina Capital Development Corp.’s Managing Director Luis A. Limlingan said in a text message.

Advancers outnumbered losers 90:78, while 57 issues remain unchanged.

Foreigners dumped shares on Tuesday with net selling at P80.36 million, considerably lower than the prior trading day’s close at P662.71 million.

Industrial stocks gained the most, up 2.29% or 235.18 points to 10,494.17 points; holding firms rallied 1.70% or 113.57 points to 6,788.17 points; property rose 1.41% or 41.43 points to 2,968.10 points; financials edged up 0.48% or 7.94 points to 1,634.46 points; services gained 0.11% or 1.38 points to 1,260.48 points.

Only mining and oil ended in the red, dropping 0.86% or 102.99 points to 11,820.32. — J.C. Lim with Reuters
