Full Weekly Report

The Colombo Bourse ended the week on a mixed note with the benchmark All Share Index shedding 19.4 points WoW to close at 6,028.7 points, while the S&P SL 20 index gained 2.0 points WoW to close at 3,385.4 points (+0.1%). Indices dipped mainly on the back of the losses made by Carson Cumberbatch (-4.1% WoW), Asian Hotels & Properties (-4.7% WoW), Lanka Orix Leasing Company (-4.7% WoW), Distilleries Company of Sri Lanka (-2.1% WoW) and CT Holdings (-3.5% WoW).

Sri Lankan stocks lost steam during the week, as a result of high net worth individuals, institutions and foreign investors being relatively inactive throughout week. Market initiated the week dragging down the indices, where the main share index fell off the 6,000 mark. Market however, picked up towards midweek, which lost field towards the end of the week to wrap up on a negative note. Meanwhile, sundude foreign participation along with the cautious approach adopted by local investors, resulted in weak daily turnovers and volumes.

Movement of the indices over the week was mostly dominated by the hype that arose on index heavy weight John Keells Holdings with respect to its colossal USD 650mn “Mixed development” project. As a result, indices picked up during Wednesday‟s trading, and sustained up-to the closure of trading on Thursday. However, uncertainty over the mode of financing of the project, contradictions in the project value and lack of clarity with regard to the project created negative vibes on investors, resulting in a price dip in John Keells Holdings, which in turn pulled down the market to end on a negative note on Friday.

In addition, trading throughout the week witnessed only a single crossing transaction on Nation Trust Bank, where c. 543k shares traded at LKR 65.0. John Keells Holdings, emerged as the highest contributor adding LKR 274.2mn to the week‟s turnover tally, followed by PC House Holdings, Nations Trust Bank and Samapth Bank, where all transaction were purely on the normal board.

Meanwhile, PC House recorded the highest traded volume for the week, where the counter witnessed large block trades on the normal board at LKR 1.20 and LKR1.30 during Friday‟s trading. Close upon 61mn shares got traded on Friday, resulting in a cumulative figure of c.79.5mn shares being traded during the week. In addition, Touchwood Investments, Central Investment& Finance and Blue Diamonds Non-voting were amongst the other counters that recorded considerable share volumes.

The week saw foreign purchases amounting to LKR299.7mn whilst foreign sales amounted to LKR173.4mn. Market capitalisation stood at LKR 2,315.4bn, and the YTD performance is 6.8%.

CB Intervention Prevents a Full Scale Capital Flight…

The stabilization of the LKR by the monetary authorities in the face of severe depreciation pressure has safely evaded the threat of foreign investors divesting from government paper, which could have led to a full scale flight of capital destabilizing the domestic financial system. The fact that stabilization of the LKR by CB intervention has prevented a foreign selloff (however, at the expense of foreign reserves) is firmly indicated by foreign net selling from government securities falling to circa LKR 100 million during the week ending 5th July, a negligible figure from over LKR 4 billion sold during the previous week. A further depreciation of the currency could have led foreigners to cut forex losses and divest their treasury portfolios leading to a full scale flight of capital from the economy. Possibily due to these fears and the negativie sentiment arising from last week‟s downgrade by Moody‟s, trading at the Colombo Bourse remained sluggish during the week indicated by significantly low daily turnover levels. Further, as expected, the Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke made the announcement that U.S. stimulus measures to revive world‟s largest economy from ailing growth would not be tapered in the „foreseeable future‟ on account of the persisting weakness in the U.S. recovery. Hence, as suggested in our previous reviews U.S. monetary policy should not be a cause for concern for the trading activity of Colombo Bourse in particular and emerging and frontier markets in general given that it is expected to remain “accommodative” for a period which the Fed Chairman notes “long-term”.
