Earnings to drive market ahead of key US data

Posted on October 24, 2016

THE BELLWETHER INDEX is expected to hover within the 7,500 and 7,790 levels, in anticipation of much awaited earning reports as well as the fast approaching US elections, analysts said.

The Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) capped the market last Friday at 7,650.22, seeing a 261-point boost or 3.53% from the week before.

On Oct. 21 alone, the PSEi fell 63.10 points or 0.82% to 7,650.22 — a decline attributed to a presidential pronouncement on a severing of ties with the United States.

Friday marked the day when President Rodrigo R. Duterte announced in a business forum in China that the Philippines would separate from the US — an announcement that he himself, along with members of his Cabinet, soon retracted to mean nothing more than lessening dependence on the western nation.

Analysts see external developments as the primary guidance for the movement of the market this week.

“[W]e expect the PSEi to move together with the international markets due to the lack of significant local catalysts… [E]xpect the PSEi to trade between 7,570 to 7,720,” said BPI Asset Management in a weekly outlook.

For, immediate support is 7,600, secondary at 7,500, and resistance is at 7,700 to 7,750. “Expect sentiment to weather through swings in equities, as the market separates traders from investors towards the final stretch of 2016,” it said in its weekly outlook.

“Investors have more to look forward to in Duterte administration’s 10-point economic agenda, following the $13.5 billion estimated commercial alliance with China. The estimated amount compares to 2016’s FDI (foreign direct investments) target of $6 billion, from January-July’s $4.7-billion data,” said.

“Meanwhile, radars will be up on sectors that would benefit, possibly infrastructure-tied & related sectors such as services, financials & property, aligned with the goal of this year’s 6.5% GDP (gross domestic product).”

AB Capital Securities analyst Victor F. Felix said that this week will also be guided by the release of third-quarter corporate earnings reports of companies here and the US.

“I think we will be trading at the 7,500 to 7,700 range. If we breach the 7,700 resistance level this opens up our market to trade within the 7,700 and 7,900 range, he said in a phone interview. “We’ll see if net foreign buying can be sustained in our markets.”

Mr. Felix said other possible factors that may guide this week’s market movement are the US crude oil inventory report, the US employment data and US preliminary GDP results.

Regina Capital Development Corp. Managing Director Luis A. Limlingan set the support at 7,580 and resistance at 7,730 then 7,790.

“[This] week may see some early window dressing and/or rebalancing mid-week before succumbing to profit taking by the end as the country gears up for an extended holiday,” he said. — Roy Stephen C. Canivel
