Stocks extend gains as foreigners turn net buyers

Posted on February 24, 2017

THE BELLWETHER INDEX extended its gains to a fourth straight session on Thursday as investors picked up select stocks, with foreigners also shifting to a net buying position.

The Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) closed higher by 31.11 points or 0.42% to close at 7,335.56 yesterday, extending its winning streak to a fourth day

The broader all shares also went up by 15.56 points or 0.35% to 4,427.27.

“Some players are buying on the breakout as the market is breaking above 7,300,” said Miko S. Sayo, trader at Angping & Associates Securities, Inc.

“Nothing much happening in the market, but it’s surprisingly strong despite the peso’s weakness,” Miguel A. Agarao, vice-president of Philequity Management, Inc., said. On the inclusion of Puregold Price Club, Inc. in the main index, he said the move barely had any impact on the PSEi because the distilled spirits maker’s weighting is quite small.

Four of the six sectoral counters finished higher, although gains were minimal. Financial stocks were the top gainers, with the counter going up by 23.39 points or 1.30% to close at 1,812.83. Services gained 0.46% or 6.61 points to 1,420.81; holding firms rose 0.44% or 32.94 points to 7,439.68; and industrials added 0.43% or 48.04 points to 11,188.87.

Meanwhile, property recorded the biggest loss among the six sectors with a decrease of 40.24 points or 1.19% to 3,327.29. The mining and oil subindex also eased by 9.39 points or 0.07% to close at 12,379.33.

Foreign funds on Thursday bought more shares than they sold, reversing a trend seen in the past weeks where selling had become almost the norm.

Foreigners bought shares worth P4.59 billion and sold P3.74 billion, resulting in a net buying of P853.81 million. This came after Wednesday’s net selling of P1 billion.

Value turnover reached P7.28 billion, just slightly higher than the other day’s P7.25 billion, with 1.37 billion shares changing hands.

Gainers outpaced losers at 92 to 82, while 51 names closed flat.

Southeast Asian stock markets were largely flat in lackluster trading on Thursday after the US Federal Reserve indicated willingness to raise interest rates, but cautioned about a lack of clarity on the Trump administration’s economic policies.

The Fed’s January meeting minutes said that it may be appropriate to raise rates again “fairly soon” should jobs and inflation data be in line with expectations, but it also reflected the depth of uncertainty at the Fed over economic risks from President Donald J. Trump’s plans.

Investors are cautious about the “global uncertainties related to Trump’s economic policies as well as the interest rate direction of the Federal Reserve, which was actually a non-event,” said Taye Shim, head of research at Mirae Asset Sekuritas.

Thai shares fell the most in the region, down 0.4%, with energy and financial sectors dragging down the index. — V.V. Saulon with Reuters
