Bourse wanders downward amid lack of drivers

Posted on May 31, 2017

STOCKS slipped on Tuesday with little to lead them as Wall Street, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan markets were closed for holidays.

The Philippine Stock Exchange index lost 25.26 points or 0.32% to close at 7,860.77, while the broader all-share index dipped 9.36 points or 0.19% to end 4,690.78.

Only services gained among the six sectoral indices, going up 4.67 points or 0.27% to close 1,686.14.

The bellwether index opened stronger at 7,891.75, touched the day’s peak at 7,897.77 as well as a low of 7,850.47 yesterday.

“Philippine markets ended in negative territory with investors focusing on developments locally and within Asia while the US was closed for holiday,” Luis A. Limlingan, managing director at Regina Capital Development Corp., said when sought for comment yesterday.

“In addition, funds were switching between specific issues in order to clean up portfolios ahead of the month-end window dressing.”

Summit Securities, Inc. President Harry G. Liu attributed the market’s decline to “lack of major catalysts” to drive the market, saying in a telephone interview: “We saw no change in the market today. US was closed for holiday so we’re basically just running within the resistance level.”

“There’s not much change in our current situation — just some updates on the Mindanao (continuing clash of government forces with militants in Marawi City) but there’s nothing crucial to really push the index higher or lower. Movement was just sideways overall.”

Asia markets that were open bared mixed fortunes, with Japan’s Nikkei and the Korea Composite Stock Price Index slipping by a nearly flat 0.02% and by 0.40%, respectively, while the Tokyo Price Index and the S&P/ASX 200 edged up 0.16% and 0.19%, respectively.


The other five sectoral indices at home closed lower, with property dropping 19.20 points or 0.52% to finish 3,660.15, mining and oil giving up 62.05 points or 0.49% to 12,482.72, holding firms falling 34.33 points or 0.43% to 7,839.61, financials shedding 8.01 points or 0.41% to end 1,937.32, and industrial ceding 37.41 points or 0.33% to 11,072.30.

Foreign funds remained net buyers yesterday, but down 15% to P572.08 million from Monday’s P674.04 million.

Value turnover reached P7.39 billion with 1.33 billion shares changing hands, compared to Monday’s 1.11 billion shares worth P8.60 billion.

Losers outnumbered gainers yesterday at 105 to 77, while 58 issues closed flat. Wilcon Depot, Inc. and Petron Corp. led gainers, rising 5.36% and 2.55%, respectively, while Ayala Land, Inc. and Aboitiz Power Corp. led decliners, shedding 1.11% and 1.39%, respectively.

“We expect the index to make some corrections but still hover above the 7800 level,” Regina Capital’s Mr. Limlingan said.

“If this continues this will become a new base for us to reach 8,000 in the near term.” — ICCD
