Revised PSE index (PSEi) composition, as of September 2013



Two new companies are now part of the 30-company benchmark Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi), replacing two others that failed to meet the inclusion criteria.

The Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) announced last week that LT Group Inc. (LTG) and GT Capital Holdings (GTCAP) will from part of the PSEi effective September 16 this year.

They will replace power distributor Meralco (MER) and gaming operator Belle Corp. (BEL).

LTG is the holding firm of the Lucio Tan group of companies with interests in liquor, distillery, property and banking businesses, among others. LTG currently lists, as subsidiaries, the following companies: Asia Brewery, Tanduay Distillers, Fortune Tobacco, Eton Properties and Philippine National Bank-Allied Bank.

GTCAP is a conglomerate owned by George Ty and family with interests in Metrobank, Toyota Motor Philippines, insurance company AXA, property developer Federal Land Inc. and power generation firm Global Business Power.

PSEi Inclusion Criteria

The recomposition is part of the regular review of the PSE index. The following three factors are considered for companies to qualify in the PSEia:

  • 1. Free Float — the stock must have a public float of at least 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 highest-ranked market capitalization (MCAP), measured by the company’s stock price multiplied by the number of shares being publicly traded.

During the review period, a stock may be added to the PSEi if it rises above the 25th position in terms of full market capitalization, replacing the company that ranks the lowest.

A company, on the other hand, may be removed from the PSE index if it falls below the 35th position in terms of full market capitalization.
