Stocks seen to trade between 7,500 and 7,900

By Keith Richard D. Mariano, Reporter

Posted on September 26, 2016

LOCAL STOCKS may resume their recovery this week, with the benchmark likely marching toward the 7,800 level, as some fund managers embark on window dressing, and investors position ahead of the earnings season.

The Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) may move within the 7,500-7,900 range, according to analysts, after monetary policies in Japan and the United States buoyed investor sentiment toward local equities last week.

“We expect the Philippine stock market to trade within a range of 7,500 to 7,900 due to lack of local catalyst,” BPI Asset Management noted in a weekly review.

As the third quarter draws to a close, however, expects window dressing to ensue, with some fund managers taking advantage of depressed prices and scouting for stocks likely to outperform in the fourth quarter.

“Run-ups may also come from spilled over positive sentiment from the latest Federal Reserve decision and reduced possibility of an interest rate hike in its next meeting in November due to US elections,” it added.

The online brokerage, however, noted the market will have to watch out for the meeting of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) on the sidelines of the International Energy Forum in Algeria on Sept. 26-28.

The bellwether settled at 7,723.60 on Friday, netting 169.84 points or 2.25% throughout last week. It stayed in the green for four consecutive sessions until investors took profits.

“Investors cashed in gains due to rising uncertainties over the Duterte administration’s reform agenda [in addition to] the possible slowdown of the global economy,” said Joylin F. Telagen, equity analyst at IB Gimenez Securities, Inc.

“But despite these uncertainties, we hope that the PSEi will consolidate at 7,800 with upward bias to 7,900 as investors might possibly rebalance their position ahead of [third-quarter] earnings and possible window dressing at the end of the week.”

Luis A. Limlingan, managing director at Regina Capital Development Corp., expects a mixed performance from the main index this week.

“[I]t will try to establish a support base at 7,700. This is an important level to watch because a successful hold will create enough demand to sponsor further recovery towards 7,800-7,850 resistance targets.”

The trend, however, would supposedly turn out bearish and the PSEi could retest the 130-day moving average of 7,600 if the main index plunged from the 7,700 level.

“Though lower week on week, intraday volatility is still a concern as we are to expect moderate to sharp price movements — fortunately, the mood of the current price reaction is more on recovery rather than corrective,” Mr. Limlingan said.

Foreign investors have been dumping Philippine equities for 21 consecutive sessions, surpassing the selling streaks recorded during the global financial crisis between 2007 and 2009. The sell-off, however, slowed down to P1.91 billion last week from P4.67 billion.

“This reflected reaffirmation of credit rating agency, S&P Global Ratings, on its assessment of the country’s long-term credit rating of ‘BBB’ with ‘stable’ outlook. The affirmation shows our economy’s resiliency in global external shocks,” said.

The global debt watcher, however, flagged that “the predictability of policy making in the Republic of the Philippines has diminished somewhat under the new presidency.”
