What a bumpy 6-month ride it has been.

The first half of 2013 ended a week ago, closing a turbulent chapter on stock market investing that saw investors in exuberance and euphoria during the first months of the year and in panic and distress in the closing months of the first half of 2013.

Let us reminisce what happened in the last 6 months.

The previous year 2012 saw the Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) recording 38 historic all-time highs, capping the year with a 33% return that earned the Philippines a spot in the list of Top 10 Best Performing Stock Markets Worldwide. Coming from this strong performance, the year 2013 opened with greater momentum — sending Philippine stocks to much higher levels, backed by solid economic fundamentals and credit rating upgrades.

The local stock market peaked on May 15, 2013, with the PSE index registering its highest close ever at 7,392.20. It likewise hit that same day an intra-day high of 7,403.65, marking the PSEi’s highest level in its history.

And then, boom! External factors emerged and began affecting the domestic stock market. Fears of QE tapering in the U.S. led to outflows of foreign funds, triggering a domino effect that sent the PSEi into a speedy downward spiral. Year-to-date peak gains of 27% were erased almost instantly and in just a matter of days, the index has lost more than 1,000 points from its highest level in May.

By the time the first half of the year saw its close in end-June, the PSEi still managed to resiliently book an 11% year-to-date return. But in its aftermath, a lot of Filipino investors were left fearful, anxious and confused. Thousands more continue to hold on to their paper losses, with muted optimism for the coming second half of 2013.
