COLOMBO, July 8 (Reuters) - Sri Lankan shares hit over two-month low on Monday, extending losses for a fourth straight session, due to foreign selling in John Keells Holdings Plc and investor concerns over the rupee's weakness.

The main share index fell 0.87 percent or 52.54 points to 5995.64, its lowest close since May 2. It has fallen 2.36 percent in the last four sessions.

The market's 14-day relative strength index (RSI) on Monday fell to an oversold region of 27.820, below the lower neutral range of 30, Thomson Reuters data showed.

'Market fell on continued foreign selling on Keells. However, foreign exit has become a problem as they don't find buying support,' said a stock broker asking not to be named.

The rupee has been on a decline since early last month as foreign investors exited from T-bonds as they have done in other emerging markets after the outlook on the U.S. economy improved, making U.S. Treasury yields more attractive.

Turnover was at 413.8 million rupees ($3.17 million) on Monday, well below this year's daily average turnover of about 1 billion rupees, according to provisional exchange data. John Keells lost 3.41 percent to 240.50 rupees. ($1 = 130.6500 Sri Lanka rupees)

The Colombo bourse continued to extend its losses falling to 46 day low on Monday (08).

The All Share Price Index fell 52.54 points down 0.87 percent to 5,995.64 and the S&P SL20 closed 31.97 points lower at 3,351.49, 0.94 percent lower.

Turnover amounted to Rs. 413.74 million and foreign purchases amounted to Rs. 124.75 million, leading to net inflow of Rs. 70.46 million.

"The ASPI dropped below the 6,000 mark by market close, reaching a 46 day low, amid subdued activity levels dominated by trades on JKH and NTB which collectively accounted for around 45% of market turnover inclusive of crossings," John Keells Stockbrokers said.

"Losers outpaced winners with Blue Diamond(X), SMB Leasing and Keells Food declining by 16.7%, 12.5% and 12.3% and offsetting gains in Serendib Land, Touchwood and Convenience Foods which rose by 22.4%, 8.3% and 8.0% respectively," DNH Financial said.

"Although we experienced a decline in the market, we don’t believe that it is sustainable. We firmly believe that careful stock selection will determine the true extent of an investor’s gains by constructing a portfolio of the most compelling companies in the ASPI not purely based on macro-economic fundamentals, but strategically positioned to tap the 2013/2014 earnings cycle which we believe is tied to local consumption dynamics. In this respect, we are buyers of selected stocks in consumer, industrial, diversified, banking and hotel sectors which we expect would benefit fully out of the domestic expansion and pass our tests of top line growth prospects, margin sustainability, quality of management and valuation," DNH Financial said.
