Philippines one of Top 10 best stock markets worldwide

The Philippine stock market registered one of the highest gains worldwide in 2012, ending with a full-year return of 32.95%. This earned the Philippines the 9th spot, out of a hundred countries, in terms of stock market performance based on preliminary data from Bloomberg.

The 32.95% return means if you invested in the Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) from the start of the year, your P100,000 would now be worth P132,950.

The 2012 PSEi performance was a strong uptrend from the modest 4.07% gain in 2011 (See Top 10 Best and Worst PSE index stocks – 2011). This return is one of the best in Southeast Asia, ranking second to Thailand’s stock market performance of 35.80%.

Worldwide, though, the top performer was the Venezuelan stock market, posting a whopping 302.81% gain in 2012.

In the Philippine stock market, the Financials, Property and Holding Firms sectors led gainers in 2012. Top decliner was the Mining and Oil sector that registered the only negative growth at -17.43%.

The comparative 2012 and 2011 PSE index and industry sector performance is as follows.
