Philippine Stocks 2011: Top 10 Gainers and Losers
January 5, 2012
As promised, here now is the list of the best- and worst-performing Philippine stocks in 2011.
Last week, we posted the top 10 stocks belonging to the Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) with the biggest gains and losses. That list sampled only 30 companies comprising the PSEi but in our new list below, we looked at all stocks traded on the PSE. We compared each stock’s closing price on December 27, 2010 with their stock price one year later (December 28, 2011). Stocks were then ranked based on this 1-year return.
2011 Performance of Industry Sectors
Most of us agree that 2011 was the year of the Mining and Oil sector in the PSE. To say that this sector merely outperformed the other indices is actually a gross understatement. While the PSE index grew by only 4.07% and most industry sectors gained only 1-digit growth last year, the mining and oil sector surged by a whopping 68.52%. In fact, three of the top 10 best-performing stocks came from the mining and oil sector, with all three generating 3-digit returns.
The Industrial sector, meanwhile, took a beating last year partly due to the continued slow growth in the global economy. In 2011, the sector declined in value by 2.02% and four of the 10 worst-performing stocks came from this index.
The Property sector suffered the most last year, experiencing negative growth of 6.40%. Two property stocks (Sta. Lucia Land and MRC Allied Inc.) belong to the 10 worst-performing stocks. And yet two other property firms bucked the trend, with Century Properties Group (CPG) gaining the most among all Philippine stocks, registering an astounding return of 503.08%.
The PSE sectoral performance at the end of 2011 is summarized below.
2011 PSE Sector Performance
|12/29/2011 Closing Level||% Growth in 2011|
|All Shares Index||3,045.04||1.28%|
|Mining and Oil Index||23,504.75||68.52%|
|Holding Firms Index||3,503.61||3.39%|
Top 10 Gainers — Philippine Stocks 2011
The top 10 highest grossing stocks includes three mining companies, such as traders’ darling Lepanto Mining ‘A’ (LC) surging 241.30%, Manila Mining ‘A’ (MA) growing 156.52%, and Dizon Copper (DIZ)’ increasing by 139.15%.
And yet these 3-digit returns pale in comparison to the 503.08% increase in the stock price of Century Properties Group (CPG). Trading only at P0.325 apiece last year, CPG ended 2011 with a closing price of P1.96. That means if you bought P100,000 worth of CPG at the end of 2010, those shares are now worth P603,000. CPG’s growth is attributed to its increasing market share in the residential condo market, from 6% in 2010 to 10% in 2011, thanks primarily to collaborations with Paris Hilton, Versace Home, and Trump Organization.

Top 10 Losers — Philippine Stocks 2011
The continuing economic turmoil in Europe and in the U.S. took its toll on the Philippines’ Industrial sector in 2011. Renewable energy firm Greenergy Holdings (formerly Musx Corporation) was PSE’s worst-performing stock of the year, losing value by 86.36% in just one year. Also declining from the Industrial sector are electronics outsourcing firm Integrated Micro-Electronics (IMI), property developer/plastics maker Alphaland Corp. (ALPHA) and cement maker Holcim Philippines (HLCM).
Mining firm Atok Big Wedge (AB) was an exception to the mining sector’s boom in 2011, with its stock price declining by 44.06%. Cebu Pacific operator Cebu Air Inc. (CEB) ended the year at a price of P65.00, almost half of its value in 2010.
