You will find below the updated and most recent list of stocks comprising the Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi).
The PSE index or PSEi is a collection of thirty (30) companies actively traded in the Philippine Stock Exchange. Its composition is reviewed and revised twice every year: in February and in August.
Why is the PSEi important?
The PSEi’s value is regularly monitored because its performance is seen as a barometer of market sentiment and general economic conditions of a country.
For example, a rising PSEi signals positive outlook in the performance of the 30 companies comprising the index and acts as proxy for optimistic business conditions in the Philippines. Similarly, declining points of the PSE index could signal market pessimism because investors could be expecting lower financial returns from the companies that are part of the index.
Are PSEi stocks considered Blue Chip stocks?
Blue Chip stocks are stocks of large and well-established companies traded in the exchange. They are generally regarded as “safe and profitable investments” because they have a proven track record of reliable financial performance.
Some would argue that the stocks comprising the PSEi are considered the “blue chip” stocks in the Philippines. That may partly be true, because PSEi stocks typically have a more stable and reliable performance than other publicly traded stocks. Still, other companies may also be considered “blue chips,” because they’re well-established and financially sound, and yet they’re not part of the PSEi.
So to summarize: it doesn’t necessarily follow that PSEi stocks are the only Blue Chip stocks in the Philippines and, at the same time, some Blue Chip stocks are not always part of the PSEi.
