Wall Street rally boosts PHL stocks in thin trade

Posted on February 14, 2017

A RISE in US markets over the weekend pulled up local stocks on Monday, with the market lacking other catalysts to spark trading activity.

The Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) moved up by 0.82% or 59.46 points to close at 7,294.67, while the broader all shares index rose by 0.64% or 28.35 points to 4,408.86.

“Philippine markets were bought up as US indexes rose,” said Luis A. Limlingan, business development head at Regina Capital Development Corp.

Wall Street’s main stock indexes rose to fresh all-time closing highs on Friday as a spike in oil prices supported energy shares and investors renewed their optimism about President Donald J. Trump’s economic agenda.

The S&P 500 tallied its fourth straight session of gains, a day after Mr. Trump vowed a major tax announcement in the next few weeks.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 96.97 points or 0.48% to end at 20,269.37; the S&P 500 gained 8.23 points or 0.36% to 2,316.10; and the Nasdaq Composite added 18.95 points or 0.33% to 5,734.13. The S&P and Dow closed at a record high for a second straight session, while the Nasdaq extended its streak of record closes to a fourth day.

In a trading post, Justino B. Calaycay, Jr., A&A Securities, Inc. head of marketing and research, said other than a more aggressive flow of corporate earnings for the fourth quarter of 2016, “there is very little catalyst internally or otherwise, to propel the market forward north.”

“The ‘fluke’ character of trades last Friday, wherein only the Philippines and Indonesian stocks retreated against a significant march forward by its regional peers, should open doors for a possible quick-term gain on a rebound this week,” Mr. Calaycay said.

He added that without further impetus, he said the main index should “observe” its present range of between 7,150/80 to 7,300. No “earnings surprises” came out on Monday.

Except for services, which eased by 0.21%, the sectoral counters finished in the green, with holding firms leading the advance with a 1.15% rise or 83.56 points to 7,338.38.

Mining and oil likewise rose 0.99% or 121.46 points to 12,279.58; property gained 0.90% or 30.13 points to 3,362.83; financials went up 0.81% or 14.37 points to 1,782.48; and industrials climbed 0.57% or 63.68 points to 11,192.97.

Value turnover thinned to P5.86 billion yesterday from Friday’s P7.24 billion, with 2.72 billion stocks changing hands.

More issues declined at 112 as against advancers at 91, with 40 stocks closing unchanged.

Foreign selling also continued, although net outflows on Monday went down to P163.04 million from P166.87 million the previous session.

Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Monday, tracking Asian peers, as investor concerns eased after Mr. Trump set aside tough campaign rhetoric over security and jobs in a smooth meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. — V.V. Saulon with Reuters
