PSEi back above 7,500, but foreign selling persists

Posted on October 19, 2016

THE BOURSE’S key index yesterday recovered above the 7,500 mark that was last seen a week earlier, riding largely on brighter Philippine growth projections of Moody’s Investors Service, which nevertheless flagged in an Oct. 18 report that “political risks have become less predictable.” Foreign sellers, however, still outnumbered buyers.

The Philippine Stock Exchange index jumped 212.94 points or 2.89% to end 7,571.15, while the broader all-shares index similarly rose by 92.81 points or 2.12% to close at 4,460.38.

Unlike Monday which saw only two sectoral indices gain, all six counters rose yesterday.

“I think the main catalyst today would have to be the Moody’s report,” said AB Capital Securities analyst Victor F. Felix said by phone yesterday. “Basically, they’re just reaffirming our strong fundamentals despite a reduction in predictability concerning our political policies because of the new administration.”

Mr. Felix said global factors may have also fueled local equities yesterday, particularly citing global oil prices still hovered around $50 per barrel, lower risk perceived by investors of a US interest rate hike next month, as well as expectations of strong third-quarter corporate earning results that have begun to trickle in.

“I think a lot of investors are not expecting a rate hike this November in the Fed meeting, so that should push the equities higher. Oil prices also gained during trading so that could also be another lift,” Mr. Felix said.

“Moreover, I think a lot of investors are positioning ahead of corporate earnings. Maybe they’re expecting strong results from the index heavyweights.”

Regina Capital Development Corp. Managing Director Luis A. Limlingan shared this opinion.

“PSEi along with Asian stocks rose as mixed US economic data supported the case for monetary policy to remain accommodative,” he said in a text message.

“Investors shrugged off a weak performance from US stocks, which closed with modest losses as oil prices eased through $50, following largely cautious commentary from three-high profile investors and despite solid corporate earnings.”

All sectoral indices ended with gains yesterday, with property stocks taking the lead with a 126.37 points or 3.92% gain to end 3,347.23.

Holding firms followed with a 248.79 points or 3.35% boost to close at 7,665.97, services came next with a 31.61 points or 2.23% hike to finish 1,450.99, financials added 27.43 points or 1.54% to settle at 1,806.90, industrial firms increased by 129.26 points or 1.12% to 11,643.65, while mining and oil climbed 84.19 points or 0.75% to close at 11,352.49.

Value turnover rose to P8.35 billion after 1.35 billion shares changed hands from P6.72 billion on Monday.

There were 123 winners, 68 losers, while 35 other stocks ended flat.

Net foreign selling thinned by three-fourths to P107.35 million from P448.51 million on Monday. — Roy Stephen C. Canivel
