PSEi returns to 7,700 as markets cheer China data

Posted on October 20, 2016

PHILIPPINE shares rallied for a second straight day to bring the benchmark index past 7,700 level as most Asian markets cheered favorable economic data from China.

The Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) added 150.42 points or 1.98% to close at 7,721.57. Meanwhile, the broader all shares index gained 74.11 points or 1.66% to close at 4,534.49.

“Most Asian markets really advanced because of the release of China’s third quarter GDP results. So it’s well within the gross target of 6.5% to 7%. It’s a sign of confidence and it dispersed a bit of the gloomy sentiments from the past few weeks in our market,” said AB Capital Securities analyst Victor F. Felix said by phone yesterday.

Reuters reported that China’s economy grew 6.7% in the third quarter, putting it on track to hit its full-year target, on the back of stronger government spending, record bank lending and a red-hot property market that are adding to its growing pile of debt.

“Basically, it’s just continued momentum from yesterday’s rally, further spurred by net foreign buying of a very significant 1 billion. There was also really strong market participation with market tally of over 10 billion.”

After sessions of net foreign selling, the market shifted to a net foreign buying position of P1.07 billion.

Moreover, he said that the third quarter corporate earnings results would dictate if yesterday’s level could be sustained.

“We have to see if 7,700 holds at a strong support level. The next coming weeks would be the release of third quarter corporate results. We’ll see if the earnings would justify this high a level.”

Justino B. Calaycay, Jr., head of marketing and research at A&A Securities, Inc., shared this opinion.

“China’s latest GDP, retail sales and industrial numbers provided a lift to regional sentiment with practically all indexes trading in the green,” he said in an e-mail sent to reporters yesterday.

Apart from this, he added other factors that also influenced the movement in the market.

In particular, he cited US and European stocks rallying overnight in light of expected gradual adjustments by the Federal Reserve, falling Japanese equities, oil prices hovering between $50 and $60 per barrel, and President Rodrigo R. Duterte’s state visit to China.

Property led the gains, up 2.38% or 79.98 points to close at 3,427.21.

Financials followed, jumping 2.1% or 38.02 points to close at 1,844.92; holding firms climbed 1.76% or 135.14 points to close at 7,801.11; industrials added 1.73% or 201.50 points to close at 11,845.15; mining and oil gained 1.58% or 179.44 to close at 11,531.93; services increased 1.57% or 22.83 points to close at 1,473.82.

Value turnover jumped to P12.16 billion after 1 billion shares changed hands from P8.35 billion on Tuesday.

There were 119 advancers, 76 decliners, while 40 remained flat. — Roy Stephen C. Canivel
