PHL stocks rebound as investors pick up bargains

Posted on January 27, 2017

THE LOCAL MARKET posted some gains from bargain hunting activities following the release of Philippine economic growth data that was within expectations and the record performance of US indices.

The benchmark Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) recovered 9.28 points or 0.13% to 7,332.64 on Thursday.

The broader all shares also posted a 4.16-point or 0.09% rebound to 4,410.89.

“The market traded rather flat as the GDP (gross domestic product) came out within expectations this morning,” Luis A. Limlingan, managing director of Regina Capital Development Corp., said in a mobile phone message after trading hours on Thursday.

The Philippine economy expanded by 6.6% during the fourth quarter of 2016, bringing the annual rate to 6.8%, near the upper end of the government’s 6-7% target, according to the Philippine Statistics Authority.

“[The fourth-quarter] GDP growth of 6.6% was in line [with expectations], so that’s a good thing,” Miguel A. Agarao, investment analyst at Wealth Securities, Inc., noted in a mobile phone message.

“Because it was at forecast, there was no marked reaction from the market. However, [Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Ernesto M.] Pernia’s comment that a 7% GDP growth is sustainable in the coming years is positive over the long term.”

Most counters extended their losses on Thursday. Industrials dropped by 25.37 points or 0.23% to 11,126.23; property by 5.73 points or 0.17% to 3,312.82; services by 1.76 points or 0.12% to 1,430.74; and mining and oil by 8.95 points or 0.07% to end at 12,338.95.

Only financials and holding firms closed in the green, advancing 17.65 points or 1.01% to 1,760.89 and 13.55 points or 0.18% to 7,518.47, respectively.

“Some slight bargain-hunting was observed mainly owing to the fact that US stocks recorded a trifecta of all-time highs on Wednesday,” Mr. Limlingan noted, with local value turnover accordingly rising to P7.02 billion from P5.46 billion after 2.70 billion issues exchanged hands.

Advancers edged out decliners, 95 to 84, while 50 stocks were unchanged during the session.

Foreign investors, however, continued to trim their exposure to local stocks. On Thursday, net foreign selling almost quadrupled to P309.98 million from the P83.68 million registered the previous session.

“The GDP number is a bit expected and not much surprising but still a good number,” UPCC Securities, Inc. trader Aristotle D. Reyes, Jr. said in a mobile phone message.

“But we can see the market to continue trade within range as investors look for a clear path about the concerns with Trump’s presidency and its policies and how are we going to be affected by those policies,” Mr. Reyes noted, adding that corporate earnings reports for 2016 may provide the market with direction in the coming days. — Keith Richard D.
