Philippine Stock Market Update - COL

I am a Money Magnet! We are Money Magnets!

Philippine Stock Market Update

COL Financial recently released their monthly publication called COLing The Shots.  In this report, they
highlighted the following points with regards to the Philippine Stock Market and what they think their clients and investors should do:


  • The correction that everyone was waiting for came by surprise in April and the PSEi is now down by 3.1% from its 2015 high of 8,134. The best explanation for the market’s drop is funds flow. While we are seeing weakness in favored markets such as the Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia, markets in Japan, China and HK are performing well. 
  • Fundamentally, nothing has changed and we remain positive on the Philippine economy. For the said reason, we would like to reiterate our view that pullbacks such as this are opportunities to buy stocks. However, given the significant weakness that we are seeing in Indonesia and other regional markets, there is room to be less aggressive. And since nobody knows where the bottom will be or when the correction will finish, we recommend peso cost averaging instead of lump sum investing, especially when prices hit attractive levels.

I am a Money Magnet! We are Money Magnets!

COL Financial recently conducted their Philippine Stock Market briefing for 2015.  In their forecasts, the Philippine Stock Exchange Composite Index (PSEi) is expected to reach 8,300 by year end 2015!  Furthermore, the PSEi is still on tract to hit 10,000 by 2020 at the latest.  That gives us Money Magnets a potential upside of 32%!

Here are the highlights of the session:

  • Liquidity will be the main driver to reach these levels.  These inflow of cash will come from the quantitative easing measures in Japan and Europe plus the fact that stocks still remain as the most attractive asset class due to low interest rates.

Learning how to build Wealth from The Ayalas (9th Richest Family in the Philippines)

I am a Money Magnet! We are Money Magnets!

Great insights we can learn from the Philippine's 9th richest family, the Ayalas.

MANILA – The Ayala family is among the richest billionaires in the country, and they endured world wars, dictatorships, political rebellions and global financial crises to form the largest conglomerate in the Philippines.

ANC On The Money's resident financial adviser Salve Duplito said there are three lessons to learn from the Ayalas:

1) It takes time to build wealth.
The Ayala Corporation was founded in 1834, and its success today took 180 years of hard work.

“When we look at somebody a lot wealthier than us, we must look beyond their big houses, posh cars, huge parties, and lifestyle. Before they got there, chances are they worked hard and long and sacrificed a lot too,” Duplito said on ANC’s “On The Money.”
