Top 10 Stock Gainers and Losers (Jan-Oct 2015)

We’ve got two months to go before the end of the year 2015 and the bulls and the bears are still fighting it out, with no clear direction to the end.

With the PSE index (PSEi) at its current level of 7,100+, will we see the PSEi rally to reach the 8,000 mark that it breached a few months ago or will it fall and stay below 7,000 points by the end of December?

As always, no one has the 100% correct answer to that question so for the meantime, let’s recap what happened in the last 10 months and find out which stocks had good and bad runs.

Our tables below summarize the PSE’s biggest stock gainers and losers from January to October this year. Are you part of the winners’ circle or the losers’ group? Check out our list below to find out.
