Philippine Stock Market Commentary

Philippine Stock Market Commentary as of February 24, 2010

After efforts to stay above 3,000, the Phisix fell to 2,981 on Wednesday.  After days of registering net foreign buying, net foreign selling occurred for the first time.  Volume is also observed to be thinning out since February 5, 2010, the first hammer we saw that signaled the February run-up to the level the Phisix is in now.  There may still be some correction following the DJIA, and immediate support is seen at 2,930.  We are still comfortable to HOLD on present levels and recommend this as a Buying Window for those who have not entered the market.

Net Foreign Buying:

PHP197 mn as of February 22, 2010

PHP106 mn as of February 23, 2010

Net Foreign Selling:

PHP69mn as of February 24, 2010
