Index back in the red this year on foreign selling

Posted on November 23, 2016

THE LOCAL MARKET extended its slide yesterday, with the main index back in the red for the year thus far, as foreign selling persisted amid hopes of a deal among oil-producing countries to cut production and the anticipated rate hike in the United States next month.

The benchmark Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) gave up 176.33 points or 2.53% to close trading at 6,802.73 on Tuesday. The bellwether is now 149.35 points below its end-2015 close of 6,952.08.

The broader all shares index also declined 84.46 points or 2% to end at 4,138.16 yesterday.

Luis A. Limlingan, business development head at Regina Capital Development Corp., said “the market saw heavy selling on improving economic outlook in the US” which supports expectations of a rate increase in the world’s largest economy by December.

“The PSEi continued to sell off as foreign funds flocked to the US market, closing in record territory as oil prices surged 4%, the greenback’s withering rally paused and the bond market selling relented.”

He said there was also a “high probability” that the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) can agree on an output freeze at its Nov. 30 meeting.

“Economic drivers in the US are improving so it makes better sense for investors to place back their funds there plus the peso has been depreciating, and there’s the rate hike looming in the US,” Mr. Limlingan added.

“We’re an outlier (yesterday). Most Asian markets closed higher, on the back of rising oil prices ahead of the OPEC meeting,” Victor F. Felix, equity analyst at AB Capital Securities, Inc., said by phone.

He added that stocks declined mainly on “foreign outflows as local investors did not put much effort of supporting the market.”

“Everyone’s in a wait-and-see mode ahead of the OPEC and Fed meeting,” Mr. Felix added.

Foreigners continued to dump their shareholdings, as net selling grew to P862.21 million yesterday from the P694.43 million seen on Monday.

Most sub-indices closed in the red except mining and oil which gained 51.10 points or 0.43% to end at 12,041.06.

Property and holding firms led the bloodbath as both counters declined by 3.06% or 94.97 points to 3,008.97 and by 216.37 points to 6,863.91, respectively. Services slid 1.82% or 23.85 points to 1,287.17; financials dropped 1.42% or 24.34 points to 1,688.09; and industrials went down by 1.07% or 119.70 points to close at 11,034.09.

Decliners beat advancers, 131 to 63, while 37 issues were unchanged. Value turnover rose to P6.96 billion as 3.58 billion shares changed hands, from the previous session’s P5.67 million.

For today’s trading, both analysts said overseas developments will continue to drive market sentiment.

Regina Capital’s Mr. Limlingan said the PSEi could test the 6,800 support and the resistance of 6,900 in the short term. For AB Capital’s Mr. Felix, the index could move within the 6,700 to 6,850 level today. — Imee Charlee C. Delavin
