Fund Manager’s Report 08.11.09
We believe this rally will sustain because:
1. “liquidity” will return to Asia. Investors are
convinced that Asia will emerge from the
recession sooner. Inasfar as the Philippine
economy is concerned, global economists expect
the Philippines to be 1 of only 4 economies where
GDP will record positive growth in 2009 and
recover strongly next year;
2. cash will chase equity as interest rates stay
low. The gap between the yields on earnings (as
gauged by the inverse of price-earnings ratio) and
money market remains wide, i.e. investors are
shifting away from money market to stocks due to
the low returns of the former combined with the
positive momentum of equities. “Free liquidity” (or
the supply of cash that is in excess of what is
needed to fund the economy) will add to the cash
(that will chase equity). In recent years, the
growth of money supply has outpaced the rate at
which the economy has been producing goods
and services. Excess cash will find its way into
stocks, resulting in higher prices; and most
importantly,
3. any correction in stock prices will not turn into a
reversal of the rally because Philippine equities
are re-rating higher. Moody’s upgrade of the
country’s foreign and local currency government
ratings to two notches below investment grade
merits a re-rating of Philippine equities as well.
