Which stocks comprise the PSEi? (As of Feb. 2018)

Which stocks currently comprise the Philippine Stock Exchange index or PSEi? What’s the PSEi, in the first place and why is it important?

About the PSEi

The PSEi is composed of thirty (30) stocks traded in the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) whose performance is generally regarded as a barometer of market sentiment and general economic conditions.

Its value is regularly monitored because a rising PSEi signals positive outlook in the financial performance of the 30 companies included in the index. Similarly, a declining PSEi could signal pessimism because it translates to lower expected financial returns from the companies belonging to the index.

PSEi Inclusion Criteria

The PSE looks at the following primary inclusion criteria when deciding which stocks to include in the index:

  • 1. Free Float — the stock must have a public float or minimum public ownership of at least 15%. This has been increased from the previous requirement of 12%;
  • 2. Liquidity — stock must belong to the top 25% by median daily value turnover per month for at least nine out of 12 months; and
  • 3. Full Market Capitalization — stock should be one of the 30 companies with highest-ranked market capitalization (MCAP), measured by the company’s stock price multiplied by the number of shares being publicly traded.

The PSE regularly reviews the PSEi composition twice a year. Starting 2018, the recomposition will happen in February and another in August. This has been revised from the current practice of doing the index recomposition in March and in September.
