Local stocks slip after Federal Reserve hikes rates

Posted on June 16, 2017

PHILIPPINE STOCKS dropped on Thursday, after the Federal Reserve’s decision to hike interest rates which has already been anticipated by the market.

The Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) had mostly traded in positive territory on Thursday, before giving up 1.52 points or 0.01% to finish at 7,964.49. The wider all shares index also retreated by 1.49 points or 0.03% to close at 4,727.56.

Luis A. Limlingan, business development head at Regina Capital Development Corp., said the local market “decided to sell a bit on news today,” citing the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) decision, which was expected.

Reuters reported the Fed on Wednesday lifted its benchmark lending rate by a quarter percentage point to a target range of 1% to 1.25%, and forecasts one more hike this year.

The US central bank’s rate-setting committee said the economy had continued to strengthen, job gains remained solid and indicated it viewed a recent softness in inflation as largely transitory.

The Fed also gave a first clear outline on its plan to reduce its $4.2-trillion portfolio of Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities, most of which were purchased in the wake of the 2007-2009 financial crisis and recession.

Three of the six sector indices slipped, albeit slightly, with mining and oil recording a 95.26-point decline or 0.76% to 12,387.11.

Financials also dipped by 12.92 points or 0.66% to 1,940.27, and holding firms by 0.45 points or 0.01% to 7,906.64.

In contrast, industrials gained 33.90 points or 0.31% to 11,062.92. Property also rose by 10.25 points or 0.27% to 3,713.78. Services moved up by 1.95 points or 0.11% to 1,758.89.

Trading value was at P8.05 billion, down from P22.86 billion the other day.

Market breadth was negative with 96 losers to 90 gainers, while 58 finished unchanged.

Foreigners remained net buyers of stocks at P519.38 million, a bid slide from Wednesday’s net of P11.38 billion.

PLDT, Inc., Ayala Land, Inc., International Container Terminal Services, Inc., and SM Investments Corp. were the top active stocks.

PLDT the other day said PLDT Communications and Energy Ventures, Inc. (PCEV) had completed the divestment of its remaining stake in Beacon Electric Asset Holdings, Inc. to Metro Pacific Investments Corp. (MPIC) for P21.8 billion.

Beacon is a special purpose company jointly owned by PCEV and MPIC, which holds a 35% interest in Manila Electric Co. and a 56% stake Global Business Power Corp. — VVS with Reuters
