Stocks extend decline as US equities end lower

Posted on October 27, 2016

THE STOCK MARKET went down for a fifth consecutive session, with the main index slightly breaching the 7,500 support level yesterday amidst lower US equities and oil prices.

The Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) lost 85.81 points or 1.13% to close at 7,494.41. The broader all shares index slid 49.20 points or 1.09% to close at 4,441.89.

Analysts attributed the index’s movement to investors’ reactions to certain data that came out in the United States.

“Last night, US equities ended lower due to mixed corporate earnings results. So Asian markets took cue from US equities. It’s also because oil prices dipped during Asian trading after data from the American Petroleum Insitute (API) showed higher than expected crude stocks,” Victor F. Felix, analyst with at AB Capital Securities, said on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Reuters reported API saying that US crude stocks rose by 4.8 million barrels in the week ended Oct. 21 versus a 1.7 million barrel build forecast by analysts polled by the media company.

“We still haven’t fully breached the 7,500 support level so tomorrow (Thursday) we’re going to reassess that. If we breach the 7,500 support level, that opens the market to a 7,300 support level. But a successful rebound tomorrow could bring our market back to the 7,700 level,” Mr. Felix said.

Nicholas Antonio T. Mapa, associate economist of the Bank of the Philippine Islands, shared the same view. “Asian stocks retreated en masse as Wall Street turned weaker overnight due to poor 3Q (third quarter) earnings. Selling pressure was heightened as a heavyweight tech company posted poor earnings, having negative repercussions in Asia which supplies most of the company’s components. Weak oil prices, which fell below $50/barrel also limited buying pressure,” he said in an e-mail interview.

“Stocks will remain pressured and be captive to global developments with a data dump later from the US tonight (trade balance and inventories). Market will also be on deck awaiting 3Q GDP numbers from the United States for more clarity on the Fed rate hike timing.”

All indices were in the red yesterday, with services posting the steepest drop, losing 1.76% or 25.85 points to close at 1,435.51.

Financials followed with a 1.47% loss or 27.15 points to close at 1,811.7; property skidded 1.29% or 43.71 points to close at 3,327.50; holding firms slid 1.24% or 94.80 points to close at 7,530.81; mining & oil edged down 0.26% or 30.20 points to close at 11,492.25; while industrials dropped 0.05% or 6.95 points to close at 11,764.55 yesterday.

Value turnover slid to P6.25 billion after 946.21 million shares changed hands on Wednesday, from P6.54 billion worth on Tuesday.

There were 137 losers, 56 winners, while 38 were flat.

Foreign investors were net sellers yesterday at P613.26 million, nearly double of Tuesday’s net purchases of P324.41 million. — RSCC
