PSEi extends gains after Yellen’s rate hike signal

Posted on January 20, 2017

LOCAL STOCKS sailed through the uncertainties brought upon by developments in the United States and the United Kingdom, with local investors snapping up bargains for a second day.

The benchmark Philippine Stock Exchange index headed further north on Thursday, closing up 89.72 points or 1.25% at 7,246.08.

The broader all shares advanced 40.63 points or 0.94% to 4,362.21 alongside.

“Philippine markets continued with bargain hunting despite US stocks trading mixed on Wednesday,” Luis A. Limlingan, managing director at Regina Capital Development Corp., said in a mobile phone message.

Markets in the US posted mixed results on Wednesday, as investors awaited remarks from Federal Reserve Chairperson Janet L. Yellen after digesting a series of corporate earnings and economic data, Mr. Limlingan said.

In a speech before the Commonwealth Club of California in San Francisco, Ms. Yellen reiterated the US central bank’s readiness to further raise interest rates as the world’s largest economy “approaches our objectives.”

“Investors are obviously bullish about equities — at least through much of the first 13 sessions of the year,” Justino B. Calaycay, Jr., head of marketing and research at A&A Securities, Inc. noted at the close of Thursday’s trading.

“This may be attributed to a full trust and confidence on the general outlook for the Philippine economy and a statement against those who raise concerns over a possible spillover of ‘political risks’ to the business and investment prospects,” Mr. Calaycay said.

The outcome of Thursday’s session suggested that investors managed to look past the uncertainties over billionaire Donald J. Trump’s assumption of the US presidency on Jan. 20 as well as the brewing divorce of the UK with the European Union, Mr. Calaycay added.

All counters posted gains, with the property sector surging 60.13 points or 1.85% to 3,297.40 and the industrial sub-index recovering 182.77 points or 1.66% to 11,145.90.

Services, meanwhile, climbed by 17.76 points or 1.29% to 1,392.05; mining and oil by 105.51 points or 0.87% to 12,233.24; holding firms by 51.98 points or 0.70% to 7,388.52; and financials by 4.81 points or 0.28% to 1,725.46.

Advancers outpaced decliners, 112 to 70, while 49 stocks were steady.

Value turnover increased to P5.86 billion from P4.98 billion, after 2.13 billion shares changed hands.

Foreign investors sold issues worth P379.18 million more than what they bought, reversing their net purchases of P27.53 million in the previous session.

“While we are hinging on to the same hopes (bright prospects for the Philippine economy), we take a cautious view in light of the fact that the narratives are yet unfolding,” A&A Securities’ Mr. Calaycay said. – Keith Richard Mariano
