(2018) Top Gainers in the Philippine Stock Exchange

Which stocks in the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) are top gainers and which ones are awful losers? For easy reference, we summarized that information below.

Investing in stocks is challenging, especially in recent times where we saw the PSEi suffer a huge 22% drop from its peak of 9,000 points earlier this year. This index performance means if you invested P100,000 in the PSEi during its peak, your money is now just worth around P78,000. Ouch!

But there are both best and worst stock performers in the PSE. Which is why selective and intelligent stock picking is key to making money.

So without further ado, let’s check which stocks are the Top Gainers and Top Losers at the end of the 9-month period January to September 2018.
