Stocks likely to climb on bullish earnings outlook

Posted on February 20, 2017

THE Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) is expected to post some improvement this week as technical indicators are showing some strength, some analysts said.

“There is a chance that the PSEi may break the 7,300-resistance line,” said Justino B. Calaycay, Jr., head of marketing and research at A&A Securities, Inc. in a market outlook.

He said the advance-decline line (ADL) levels over the two previous peaks “show an improvement in the latter indicating some degree of strength, or at least, resilience.”

“A few of the ‘majors’ have released fourth-quarter numbers and it has been more than decent,” he added.

The PSEi finished last week at 7,244.79, posting a rise of 0.13% from its 7,235.21 close last Feb. 10. Over a four-week period, the bellwether index gained 0.17%.

The broader all shares index was also up by 0.17% to 4,388.01 from a week earlier.

In its weekly review, BPI Asset Management said local equities ended marginally higher due to mixed corporate earnings data, citing the reports of Cemex Holdings Philippines, Inc., Bank of the Philippine Islands and Jollibee Foods Corp.

It said the local equities market stayed flat with a marginal increase as investors took in mixed corporate earnings results.

“On the other hand, the local fixed income market closed lower as investors priced in hawkish statements from the US Fed and strong economic print from the US,” it said.

“Global equities continued to outperform as optimism towards the US economy was amplified by Fed[eral Reserve] Chair [Janet L.] Yellen’s comments. In contrast, international bonds suffered from losses due expectations of rising interest rates after Yellen gave her congressional speech,” it said.

Ms. Yellen noted in her speech on Tuesday night that regulators may need to lift interest rates anew in their March 13-14 policy meeting as delaying the move could bring the Fed “behind the curve” and cause them to increase rates faster that would lead to a recession.

The US central bank also noted that they expect the US job market to remain robust and continue tightening as well as US inflation climbing to 2%.

However, Ms. Yellen noted uncertainties of the economic policies under US President Donald J. Trump’s administration.

On a sectoral comparison, financials led the gainers as it rose by 1.46% week on week to 1,793.86.

“The benchmarks for financial and conglomerates rose last week. Those for mining and oil, industrials and services fell. The property sector closed the week flat,” said Mr. Calaycay. “Short-term value flows remains relatively weak and below the average, however. There could be some short-term action and opportunities in the [financial] sector.”

Foreigners remained net sellers during the Feb. 13-17 week at P760.29 million, but lower than previous week’s P1.74 billion. — V.V. Saulon
