PSEi returns to 7,000 level on strong GDP report

Posted on November 18, 2016

SHARE PRICES recovered yesterday to propel the main index above the 7,000 level as the upbeat third-quarter Philippine gross domestic product (GDP) data boosted investor sentiment.

The Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) added 83.84 points or 1.20% to close at 7,050.12 yesterday from 6,966.28 on Wednesday.

The broader all shares index also gained 30.95 points or 0.73% to end at 4,242.40.

Local shares rose as much as 2.15%, their biggest intraday percentage gain in nearly a month as data released yesterday showed the Philippine economy grew by 7.1% in the third quarter, beating expectations.

The GDP expansion was supported by growth in the services, industry and farm sectors and was the first publication of quarterly GDP growth data under President Rodrigo R. Duterte.

First Grade Finance, Inc. Managing Director Astro C. Del Castillo said the bellwether PSEi got a lift from the “better-than-expected” GDP print.

“There’s less pressure from the outside since markets were quiet [yesterday], somehow concerns dissipated although it’s still there. Mainly, we got a boost from the GDP, it’s positive overall, which also confirmed the momentum for growth given that it’s above market expectations,” Mr. Del Castillo said in a phone interview.

Luis A. Limlingan, business development head at Regina Capital Development Corp., said “markets were happy with the GDP outcome, which was the highest in three years, bouncing back after several days of losses… Markets cheered as the Q3 GDP recorded above 7.1% on better agricultural, construction and consumption output. In the US, data were rather mixed so the focus is really on the GDP data.”

All sectoral subindices ended in the green yesterday. Property climbed 62.66 points or 2.01% to 3,167.69; industrial went up by 156.33 points or 1.42% to 11,132.01; services increased by 8.67 points or 0.65% to 1,324.14; holding firms gained 43.55 points or 0.61% to 7,126.92; financials rose 8.16 points or 0.47% to 1,725.14; and the mining and oil subindex went up 48.33 points or 0.41% to 11,815.04.

Value turnover grew to P8.14 billion yesterday as 2.72 billion shares changed hands, from the P6.52 billion seen in the previous session.

Bulls also overpowered bears, 91 to 78, while 53 issues closed unchanged.

Net foreign buying was recorded at P62.66 million — a reversal of Wednesday’s net outflow worth P1.37 billion.

For today, Mr. Limlingan said the PSEi’s support is seen at the 7,000 level as investors will turn its attention back to overseas developments.

“Market will remain volatile on concerns over the possibility of the US Fed[eral Reserve] raising rates next month. Foreign funds will continue to sell, but we remain positive moving forward as strong economy, would mean still positive revenues for listed companies,” he added. — Imee Charlee C.
