PSE Top 10 Gainer and Loser Stocks in 2017

Philippine stocks ended the year 2017 on a high note, with the Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) surging by a total of 25.11% last year!

The Philippine stock index wrapped up the year with another all-time high level, closing at 8,558.42 points on the last day of trading on December 29, 2017.

The 25.11% rise of the PSEi means that if you placed a P100,000.00 investment in the index from January 2017 until the end of December 2017, your money has now grown to P125,110.00!

But did you know that if you invested in the Best Performing Stocks in the PSE, your money could have doubled, tripled, or reached a whopping 920% return!

The Macroasia Corp. (MAC) stock earned that distinction, with its price skyrocketing from P2.24 to P22.85 in one year — a price increase of 920.09%! That means a P100,000 investment in MAC is now worth P1,020,000! Yup, your P100,000 cash has become a million pesos in just one year. Wow!
