PSEi back to 6,800 at penultimate trading day

Posted on December 29, 2016

THE Philippine Stock Exchange Index (PSEi) rose to a near two-week high on Wednesday, taking the cue from Wall Street’s overnight gains following the release of upbeat US economic data.

But the rally back to 6,800 level — the first time since Dec. 16 — is not enough for investors to pin their hopes for the bellwether index to avoid capping 2016 with losses again.

Wednesday was 2016’s penultimate trading session for most financial markets that will be closed from Dec. 30 through the weekend for the New Year holidays.

That session saw the PSEi climbing by 2.82% to 6,846.44, its best finish in nearly two weeks.

The broader all-shares index rose 1.95% or 79.57 points to 4,150.17.

“We will be within striking distance of closing in the green ytd (year to date) at 6,952 (end 2015)… we see the market testing all time-highs but we are more conservative with our end-year target as it may succumb to profit taking,” Luis A. Limlingan, managing director at Regina Capital Development Corp., said in a text message.

“The bulls will certainly attempt to close the market at 6,900 but if today’s turnover of about P3.4 billion is any indication, there’s no fist in the glove,” Manuel Antonio G. Lisbona, president of PNB Securities, said in a separate mobile message.

Two stocks rallied for each that fell in trading where P3.45 billion worth of shares changed hands, still thin compared to the daily average.

“The PSEi is nearly certain to post its second consecutive annual loss — after stringing six years of gains following the 2008 rout,” A&A Securities said in its yearend report e-mailed to reporters yesterday.

“We started off the year optimistic, with a hint of caution… We can sum up the year’s narratives in three phrases — a divisive election, US interest rates and the US Presidential election. Earning honorable mentions were China, the EU, oil prices and acts of terrorism. On the domestic front it is plain and simple yet complicated ‘rhetoric’,” the report added.

Holding firms rose 3.08% or 209.47 points to 6,997.64 points; property went up 2.59% or 76.91 points to 3,045.01 points; services jumped 2.37% or 29.99 points to 1,290.47 points; industrial gained 2.18% or 229.67 points to 10,723.84 points; financials climbed 1.73% or 28.40 points to 1,662.86 points; mining and oil edged up 0.29% or 34.81 points to 11,855.13 points.

MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose 0.50%.

US stocks had gained slightly on Tuesday, supported by upbeat consumer and housing data, with gains in technology shares lifting the Nasdaq Composite to a record close.

Hong Kong’s benchmark index has slumped 6.60% this quarter, the world’s worst performance after the Philippines and New Zealand, as higher borrowing costs undermined the outlook for the city’s property market and a weaker yuan cut foreign demand for Chinese assets. — Reuters, Bloomberg with JCL
