PSEi drops further on Fed interest rate hike bets

Posted on October 14, 2016

THE MARKET extended its slide yesterday amid uncertainty in overseas markets and on top of heightened possibility of a US Federal Reserve rate hike, analysts said.

The Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) lost 117.64 points yesterday or 1.58% to close at 7,312.18. The broader all-shares slid 60.24 points or 1.36% to 4,369.60.

“The Fed released minutes of their September meeting. It… basically suggested that a rate hike in December is still on the table. So the possible of a rate hike has put investors on risk-off mode,” said Victor F. Felix, analyst with AB Capital Securities, in a phone interview.

“This is continued downward momentum from Wednesday. On Wednesday, we went down because of disappointing preliminary US earnings. So losses in their market spilled over to our markets.”

He added that events scheduled for November contributed to the gloomy sentiment in the market yesterday.

“There is also uncertainty next month in the US elections and the formal OPEC meeting,” he said, referring to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). Also next month, the US will decide between US Presidential race between Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic bet Hillary Clinton.

For his part, Regina Capital Development Corp. Managing Director Luis A. Limlingan said: “I think the market was digesting the minutes of the [Fed] meeting,” he said in a phone interview.

He also cited China’s “lackluster” September trade data which showed a sharp decline in exports, as well as the US job openings numbers which fell to an eight-month low in August.

All subindices were in the red yesterday. Property fell 155.60 points or 4.62% to 3,206.08; mining and oil lost 154.46 points or 1.4% to 10,864.46; financials declined 16.95 points or 0.95% to 1,757.86; holding firms skidded 68.36 points or 0.92% to 7,348.17; services gave up 12.93 points or 0.91% to 1,407.05; and industrials dropped 90.40 points or 0.77% to 11,544.01.

Value turnover rose to P8.78 billion after 1.74 billion changed hands from P8.45 billion on Wednesday.

There were 164 decliners and 29 winners, while 44 were flat.

Foreigners continued to sell their holdings, with net outflows growing to P748.09 million yesterday from Wednesday’s P555.95 million.

Most Southeast Asian stock markets also fell on Thursday, tracking Asian peers after disappointing Chinese trade data raised fresh concern about the world’s second biggest economy, while fears over a Fed rate hike in December added to the subdued sentiment.

Sentiment was hit after minutes from a Fed meeting last month indicated that it might raise interest rates if the US economy continued to strengthen, and after a report that the Bank of Japan is likely to trim its inflation forecast for the next fiscal year in a quarterly review. — Roy Stephen C.
