Best Performing PSEi Stocks — 1st Quarter 2014

The 1st quarter of the year 2014 is over.  The Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi), a basket of 30 listed companies generally considered a barometer of the country’s economic health, increased 9.15% in value during the past three months.

This benchmark return can be used to gauge the performance of a stock listed in the PSE. Those with higher year-to-date returns are said to beat the performance of the PSEi — a good thing — while those with lower returns are said to underperform the index — a sign of slower growth or negative outlook for the company.

Fourteen (14) of the 30 index companies were able to post returns higher than the 9.15% benchmark PSEi return.

The Top 5 Biggest PSEi Gainers are:

  1. Semirara Mining Co. (SCC): +43.36%
  2. First Gen (FGEN): +33.81%
  3. JG Summit Holdings (JGS): +26.92%
  4. Megaworld Corp. (MEG): +26.59%
  5. DMCI Holdings (DMC): +20.69%

Sixteen (16) index stocks failed to match the PSEi’s 1st quarter return, with four stocks even registering negative growth during the past three months.

The Top 5 Biggest PSEi Underperformers are:

  1. Petron Corp. (PCOR): -16.74%
  2. Jollibee Foods Corp. (JFC): -2.79%
  3. SM Prime Holdings (SMPH): -2.67%
  4. SM Investments Corp. (SM): -1.47%
  5. Metrobank (MBT): +0.13%
