With three months done, we wrapped up yesterday the first quarter of the year 2016. That was quick, right?
Let’s check your stocks portfolio. From January to March 2016, did you make money or lose money? And if you made money, were you able to beat the performance of the benchmark Philippine Stock Exchange index or PSEi?
In the first three months of the year, the PSEi is up 4.46%. That means if you invested, say P100,000 in the PSEi from the beginning of the year, your money is worth P104,460 today. Not bad.
But which individual PSEi stocks performed well and which ones sucked?
San Miguel Corp. (SMC) is the PSEi’s best performer of the 1st quarter, rising by 54.15% to close at P77.00 during the last trading day of the quarter.
SMC subsidiary Petron Corp. (PCOR) is the next top performer, with a quarterly price increase of 47.78%, thanks largely to recovering oil prices in the world market.
Telecom giant Globe (GLO) ranks third, with a January-March price appreciation of 22.52%, closing at P2,220 yesterday making it one of the most expensive Philippine stocks at the moment.
Meanwhile, out of the 30 component PSEi stocks, there where five (5) losers, all incurring a negative price change in the past 3 months.
These include Emperador Inc. (EMP), down 15.78%; Semirara Mining (SCC), down 3.81%; Energy Development Corp. (EDC), down 2.97%; PLDT (TEL) and Ayala Corp. (AC).
Here’s a complete list of each PSEi stock’s return in table format.
