Philippine Stock Market Commentary

Philippine Stock Market Commentary as of February 19, 2010

After going up for six days, the Phisix corrected on Thursday and Friday just below the 3,000 level.  With earnings announcements ongoing and dividend season upcoming on the second quarter, medium term investors can take advantage of this correction to position themselves in the market.  Net foreign buying has been positive during these two days, and indicators are still at low levels favorable for another possible run-up.  We maintain our recommendations.
