Stocks mixed as investors eye Fed, BoJ meetings

By Keith Richard D. Mariano, Reporter

Posted on September 20, 2016

STOCKS ended mixed on Monday as foreign investors await clarity on the monetary policies of the United States and Japan and as players took advantage of the cheap prices to expand their shareholdings later in the session.

The benchmark Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) recovered 22.08 points or 0.29% to 7,575.84 while the broader all-shares dropped 16.20 points or 0.35% to 4,541.97 amid thin trading.

Investors stayed on the sidelines ahead of the policy meeting of the Federal Reserve in Washington on Sept. 20-21, Jonathan J. Latuja, research analyst at Unicapital Securities, Inc., noted in a mobile phone message.

“The market’s just trying to hold the range while investors wait for the Fed meeting. The volume today (Monday) was relatively dry, hinting that market participants opted to stay in the sidelines amid the uncertainty,” Mr. Latuja said.

Foreign investors, in particular, are watching out for the policy meeting of the Bank of Japan (BoJ) on Sept. 20-21 alongside that of the US central bank, Victor F. Felix, equity analyst at AB Capital Securities, Inc., noted separately.

Uncertainty prevailed in the local stock market in morning trade, with the PSEi losing as much as 33.95 points or 0.45% to touch an intraday low of 7,519.81.

The PSEi would eventually bounce back after local investors found an “entry point” to hunt for bargains, Mr. Felix said, with the main index rising to an intraday high of 7,576.84 toward the end of the session.

Property and services led the ascent, rising by 26.67 points or 0.79% to 3,365.75 and by 11.89 points or 0.80%to 1,497.70, respectively. The market also witnessed industrial stocks climb by 57.46 points or 0.48% to 11,933.99 and holding firms by 23.60 points or 0.31% to 7,511.06.

The mining and oil sector along with the financials counter, meanwhile, stayed in negative territory after losing 109.75 points or 1.04% to 10,436.03 and by 16.04 points or 0.86% to 1,843.01, respectively.

Decliners outpaced advancers, 101 to 90, while 47 names were unchanged.

Value turnover dropped to P7.21 billion, after 1.09 billion shares exchanged hands, from the P13.8 billion recorded on Friday with 2.05 billion issues traded.

Foreign investors dumped more shares on Monday. Net foreign selling, however, declined to P892.20 million from P1.65 billion the previous session.

AB Capital’s Mr. Felix expects local stocks to continue trading sideways until the Federal Reserve decides on the implementation of another rate hike although the market has widely expected the US central bank to defer such action until December.

Regional markets could surge should the Fed refrain from increasing interest rates during its meeting this week, although “political noise” could temper such a rally in the Philippines, he said.
