Stocks drop further ahead of GDP growth data

Posted on January 26, 2017

STOCKS dropped further yesterday as the market succumbed to profit taking ahead of the release of the Philippine gross domestic product (GDP) report that may rekindle sentiment toward local shares.

The benchmark Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) lingered in negative territory on Wednesday, surrendering 47.29 points or 0.64% to settle at 7,323.36.

The broader all shares index likewise dropped 20.57 points or 0.46% to 4,406.73.

“The market was on profit taking since Tuesday after rising more than 140 points last Monday ahead of the GDP release on Thursday,” Aniceto K. Pangan, trader at Diversified Securities, Inc., said in a mobile phone message.

The PSEi opened the week with a 141.69-point or 1.95% surge to 7,374.35 before retreating in the following session, shedding some 3.70 points or 0.05% to 7,370.65, as investors booked gains amid the uncertainty surrounding the policy actions of US President Donald J. Trump.

“The US market actually should have contributed to an advance today — which it did initially — but profit taking overcame the buying action,” Juan G. Barredo, vice-president for sales and customer support services at COL Financial Group, Inc., noted in a mobile phone message on Wednesday. “Perhaps some wanted to remain defensive over the upcoming GDP report, given a possible sell on news attitude.”

The mining and oil basket survived the profit taking, extending its gains by 57.58 points or 0.46% to 12,347.90. The other counters incurred losses, with the property sector declining by the most at 32.11 points or 0.95% to 3,318.55. Services, meanwhile, dropped by 11.32 points or 0.78% to 1,432.50; holding firms by 45.29 points or 0.60% to 7,504.92; financials by 5.29 points or 0.30% to 1,743.24; and industrials by 25.06 points or 0.22% to 11,151.60.

The session saw 106 stocks advance, 79 decliners and 52 that remained steady.

Value turnover decreased to P5.46 billion from the P7.89 billion seen on Tuesday as investors only traded 930.10 million issues.

Foreign investors posted P83.68 million in net sales, adding to the P822.87-million net outflow seen the previous session.

The market’s uptrend, nevertheless, remains intact, COL Financial’s Mr. Barredo noted, as the PSEi attempts to break through the 7,418-7,500 mark.

“But we are in a zone of resistance which is causing heaviness. We do expect choppiness here. It is a crucial zone that can (if broken) lift the market to over 7,500 to 7,700. But if resistance (7,418-7,500) holes another pull back, consolidation can follow.”

Stocks may reverse their losses should the Philippine economy’s growth in the fourth quarter exceed 7% and subsequently bring the annual reading at the upper end of the government’s 6-7% target, Diversified Securities’ Mr. Pangan said.

“This will manifest the strength of our economy going forward with the new government.” — Keith Richard D. Mariano
