PSEi advances as strong data spark Wall St. rally

Posted on February 21, 2017

LOCAL STOCKS recorded some gains on Monday as it tracked the advance of US markets over the weekend due to strong economic data there.

The Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) rose by 0.50% or 36.40 points to close at 7,281.19 on Monday.

Moving in the same direction, the broader all shares index gained 0.46% or 19.99 points to finish the session at 4,408.

Luis A. Limlingan, business development head at Regina Capital Development Corp., said the local bourse aligned with US markets, which he said posted their seventh successive record session, citing a deal in the stables segment that helped offset the weakness in energy.

“Value turnover was lackluster as the US markets are closed today for the Presidents’ Day holiday,” he said, adding that leading US economic indicators advanced in January.

“The Conference Board’s leading economic index climbed 0.6%,” he said, comparing the improvement to market estimates of 0.5% month on month, and December’s 0.5% rise.

“The interest rate spread, building permits, average weekly initial jobless claims and the ISM (Institute for Supply Management) new orders index were among the largest positive contributors. Meanwhile, Treasuries advanced as fresh developments in the French presidential election — two leaders from the political left could join forces, possibly hurting the chances of the centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron and helping Ms. [Marine] Le Pen — drove investors towards safe harbor bonds,” Mr. Limlingan said.

All counters ended in the green. Mining and oil issues climbed by 1.61% or 193.06 points to finish at 12,171.27, making the sector the day’s top performer after it sustained steady battering in the past few days on closure and suspension issues. Holding firms followed with a 0.93% rise or 67.77 points to 7,364.37. Industrials also moved up by 0.42% or 46.07 points to 11,130.84; services rose 0.26% or 3.71 points to 1,421.50; financials added 0.24% or 4.39 points to 1,798.25; and property inched up by 0.06% or 1.94 point to 3,336.18.

With the improvement, advancers narrowly edged out decliners at 97 to 96, while 45 stocks closed unchanged.

However, value turnover decreased to P5.61 billion from Friday’s P6.99 billion, with 1.53 billions shares changing hands.

Foreigners continued to exit the market as they sold P2.87 billion worth of stocks as against buying of P2.48 billion, resulting in a net selling of P393.85 million or more than eight times Friday’s net outflow of P47.37 million., the online arm of F. Yap Securities, Inc., said the market might continue with its consolidation phase this week, “with no new catalysts in place yet to trigger a sizeable run-up.”

It expects the PSEi’s immediate support at between 7,150 and 7,200, while resistance at 7,300 to 7,350. It said locals would continue to monitor the release of corporate earnings from large cap companies. — Victor V. Saulon
