Retail participation was up and running soon after the festivities on Tuesday which was promising for all stakeholders. Block trades on banking counters helped to prop up turnover levels with PABC seeing a 15% stake being split amongst 6 trades. Banking counters were also seen regaining momentum whilst Lion Brewery touched an all-time high price of Rs. 340.00.

ASI gained 12.80 points (0.22%) to close at 5,852.68 and the S&P SL20 index gained 18.03 points (0.54%) to close at 3,351.57. Turnover was Rs. 1,580.0

On Wednesday, sentiment remained strong buoyed by interest on blue-chips. Foreign accumulation of blue-chips has seen local investors also building their appetite for equities. Banking counters and John Keells Holdings continued to be the dominant performers in the market. Retail activity is rallying around the surge in foreign buying. However, investors are cautioned to stick to value investing to minimize unwarranted speculation.

ASI gained 15.85 points (0.27%) to close at 5,868.53 and the S&P SL20 index gained 10.42 points (0.31%) to close at 3,361.99. Turnover was Rs. 611.5Mn.

On Thursday, retail activity surged ahead of institutional interest on stocks. Low-capped and mid-capped counters saw continued retail speculation. Blue-chips retreated on mainly losses on banking and financials. Lower yields on treasuries seemed to have spurred retail activity with the CBSL expecting lower rates going forward.

ASI gained 23.30 points (0.40%) to close at 5,891.83 and the S&P SL20 index lost 10.84 points (0.32%) to close at 3,351.15. Turnover was Rs. 800.9Mn.

Indices closed lower mainly on the losses on blue-chips on Friday. Most banking counters lost marginally on thin volumes. Ceylon Tobacco Company surged ahead with a dividend announcement around the corner. Retail activity which was rallying around foreign was seen taking an off-day. Colombo Land in particular received plenty of retail activity today. Negotiated deals on Commercial Bank took the lion’s share of the turnover.

ASI dipped 9.58 points (0.16%) to close at 5,882.25 and the S&P SL20 index lost 15.03 points (0.45%) to close at 3,336.12. Turnover was Rs. 1,033.9Mn.

Top contributors to turnover were Commercial Bank with Rs. 520.4, Nations Trust Bank with Rs. 54.9Mn and Colombo Land & Development with Rs. 53.3Mn. Most active counters for the day were Colombo Land & Development, Citrus Leisure warrant 19 and HVA Foods.

Notable gainers for the day were Colombo Land & Development up by 8.9% to close at Rs. 41.50, Kelsey Homes up by 8.8% to close at Rs. 16.00 and Beruwala Walk Inn up by 8.7% to close at Rs. 2.50. Notable losers for the day were SMB Leasing down by 10.0% to close at Rs. 0.90, Amana Takaful down by 5.9% to close at Rs. 1.60 and Ceylon Leather Products down by 5.6% to close at Rs. 3.40.

Cash map for today was 38.99%. Foreign participation was 34.7% of total market turnover with net foreign buying at Rs. 491.0Mn.

The activities at the bourse regained strength subsequent to the ending of the holiday season. The ASI gained 42.37 points WoW to close at 5,882.3 points (0.7%), whilst the S&P SL20 Index gained 2.58 points WoW to close at 3,336.12 points (0.1%). Indices benefited mainly on the back of the gains made by Colombo Land and Development Company (18.6% WoW), DFCC Bank (3.2% WoW), Lion Brewery (4.5% WoW), Hatton National Bank (2.1% WoW) and Hemas Holdings (7.5% WoW).

Sri Lankan stocks continued to gather momentum during the week recording healthy turnover and volumes where the bourse gained WoW for the third consecutive week. Institutional and foreign participation was strongly rooted in mid and large cap counters, while retail participation was also at a relatively high level during the week presumably owing to the expectations over the downward trend in the market rates. UNESCAP(United Nation Economic and Social Commission for Asia) revealing its 2013 annual report mentioned that the country’s economic growth is expected to be propelled by easing of its monetary policies and fiscal policies whilst key sectors such as agriculture is also expected to improve after the setback witnessed during 2012 due to adverse climate conditions.

World stocks witnessed a volatile ride during the week in light of IMF’s lowered economic growth projections for world economy, which also predicted that US spending cuts could slow the growth of the country and the phase of recovery in EU. MSCI world index reversed its course during the week to close at a dip of 1.2% WoW, ending the continuous rally as the outlook for growth in the global economy waned.

Furthermore, the week marked the earnings season of US companies. As per the data published by the Bloomberg 74% of the 90 companies in the S&P 500 have exceeded the analyst earnings estimates while 50% exceeded revenue projections as at Friday.

Moving to the Colombo Bourse, the week’s turnover level was largely driven by banking sector stocks, of which Pan Asia Bank played a prominent role due to a colossal crossing witnessed on Tuesday. Counter witnessed C. 15% of its issued quantity that accounted 44mn shares being transferred to Japanese investor Bansei Securities Co.Ltd at LKR21. The deal enhanced the year to date net foreign inflow of the bourse to reach LKR7.9bn as at Friday.

Furthermore, representing the banking sector Commercial Bank of Ceylon, Hatton National Bank and Nations Trust Bank also enticed heavy institutional and retail activity to join the top weekly turnover calibre. Reaffirming this Banking, Finance and Insurance sector index witnessed a WoW gain of 0.9% while the diversified sector index also witnessed a WoW gain of 0.3% mainly due to the investor interest witnessed in John Keells Holdings. On the back of these developments, the week saw an
average turnover of LKR 1bn and an average volume of 45.8mn.

Furthermore, Pan Asia Bank, Free Lanka Capital Holdings, Seylan Merchant Bank, Citrus Leisure and Commercial Bank of Ceylon topped the list in terms of volume traded during the week.

The week saw foreign purchases amounting to LKR 2,365.4 mn whilst foreign sales amounted to LKR 1,033.2mn. Market capitalisation stood at LKR 2,253.2bn, and the YTD performance is 4.2%.

Conclusion:

Interest at the Colombo Bourse sustained after New Year festivities...

Activities at the Colombo bourse picked up with New Year festivities drawing to a close whilst some profit taking in blue chip and Banking & Finance stocks was witnessed towards the latter half of the week. Interest in Banking & Finance sector counters continued during the week and took on a different dimension spurred by the steep drop in gold prices witnessed over the week. This raised concerns amongst investors towards Banking & Finance stocks that have high exposure to gold backed loans (i.e.: Pawning).

However our analysis reveals that the impairment losses incurred on pawning is historically low compared to other categories of loans and hence a drop in value of gold is unlikely to lead to widespread defaults due to the sentimental value placed by borrowers on gold which is used as collateral. Hence we expect this development not to have a significant adverse impact on the asset quality of the domestic banking sector.

However, a persistence of the downward trend in gold prices could affect the future loan growth from this sector which accounts for over 12% of the total loans disbursed by the banking system.

Despite some sell down being witnessed in some blue chip counters, the outlook for the domestic economy appears to be favourable with both the IMF and the UN-ESCAP expecting Sri Lanka’s GDP growth to reach 6.3% and 6.5% in 2013E respectively. Whilst expecting a general slowdown in global economic activity, the IMF expects Sri Lanka to continue to record the fastest growth rate for the South Asian region in 2013E. Further, the Central bank’s decision to keep policy rates stable for the month of April as well its commitment towards lowering market rates would augur well for equity valuations. Reaffirming the above, foreign investor expectations of the Colombo bourse continue to remain broadly positive as indicated by the YTD net foreign inflow of approx. LKR 7.5 bn to date.
