Stocks decline on profit taking as Wall St. slips

Posted on March 21, 2017

LOCAL EQUITIES opened the week succumbing to profit taking, with the influence of last week’s US Federal Reserve meeting subsiding as investors await for other market influencers.

The bellwether Philippine Stock Exchange index dropped 0.38% or 28.45 points to 7,316.57. The broader all-share index fell 0.29% or 12.86 points to 4,404.34 points.

“[The] market is just taking a pause after last weeks run-up of almost 3%. Most opted to take profit as investors await for market moving news and [the] BSP (Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas) meeting on Thursday,” said First Grade Finance, Inc. Managing Director Astro C. del Castillo in a text message yesterday, adding that the main index is seen to hover around the 7,300 level it benchmarked last week.

“Philippine markets traded in the red, taking cues from US stocks awaiting for the next catalyst as their Friday narrowly traded lower amid further weakness in both financials and health care,” Luis A. Limlingan, managing director of Regina Capital Development Corp., said in a text message yesterday.

US stocks dipped on Friday as bank shares fell alongside Treasury yields. Indices were little changed for a second day even if the Nasdaq Composite touched a record intraday high. Analysts say investors are expecting a catalyst to thrust stocks higher after bets on US President Donald J. Trump’s promises of tax cuts and a fiscal stimulus drove Wall Street to all-time highs on a weeks-long rally.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 19.93 points or 0.10% to end at 20,914.62, the S&P 500 lost 3.13 points or 0.13% to 2,378.25, and the Nasdaq Composite added 0.24 point to 5,901.00.

At home, most sectoral indices ended in the red. The property counter saw the biggest loss, slumping 1.03% or 33.99 points to 3,250.66; financials slid 0.84% or 15.64 points to 1,845.94; mining and oil went down 0.49% or 58.87 points to 11,946.19; industrial fell 0.39% or 43.79 points to 11,018.85; and services dropped 0.04% or 0.61 points to 1,488.72. The holding firms counter was the lone sector to close in the green, adding 0.07% or 5.34 points to 7,348.01.

Decliners outnumbered advancers, 111 to 64, while 59 issues were unchanged.

Value turnover stood at P7.03 billion on Monday, just more than half the P13.99 billion on the prior trading day, as 1.27 billion shares changed hands.

Foreigners dumped shares with net outflows totaling P929.52 million, a reversal from the net purchases of P169.08 million seen last Friday.

Other Southeast Asian stock markets were mixed in thin trade on Monday, with Indonesia heading for its first fall in six sessions while the Federal Reserve’s dovish stance continued to drag the dollar lower.

The dollar slowly ceded ground in Asia on Monday with greenback bulls still nursing grudges after the Fed’s rate guidance last week proved to be less “hawkish” than many had wagered on. — J.C. Lim with Reuters
