The indices rose sharply during the last day of the week breaking the long prevailed lethargic momentum on the back of few selected blue chip counters gaining points. The ASI gained 12.3 points WoW to close at 6,041.1 points (+0.2%), whilst the S&P SL20 Index gained 23.7 points WoW to close at 3,409.2 points (+0.7%). Indices benefited mainly on the back of gains made by John Keells Holdings (+4.0% WoW), Sri Lanak Telecom (+2.5% WoW), Carsons Cumberbatch (+1.9% WoW), Chevron Lubricants (+4.0% WoW) and Commercial Bank of Ceylon (+1.4% WoW).

The bourse headed south during the first three days of the week with majority of the counters losing grip. However, it managed to gain momentum on Thursday and rose sharply during Friday’s trading mainly due to diversified giant John Keells Holdings gaining c.4.2% reporting the highest number of trades for the day. Moving in tandem, majority of the counters also witnessed a strong recovery in their prices during the day strengthening the bourse to gather more points. The activities of both the local and foreign investors remained subdued during the beginning of this week, however it recovered towards the latter part of the week with net foreign inflow substantially increasing to LKR860.2mn during the week.

Further, ADB brought down its Asian growth outlook for 2013E to 6.3% YoY from 6.6% YoY after China releasing its GDP growth for 2Q2013 which stood at 7.5% YoY which is a slow down for the second successive quarter. However ADB is optimistic on Sri Lanka’s growth prospects and expects the economy to grow at 6.8% YoY in 2013E and 7.2% YoY in 2014E. It further stated that this growth momentum is expected to be supported by further monetary policy easing and improvement in power generation which will drive the domestic industry growth.

During the week the shares of Anilana Hotels and Properties which were issued at LKR12.0 via IPO made its debut trading on Wednesday at the CSE. The shares reached a high of LKR13.50 during the first day but gradually lost grip to close the week at LKR10.30.

Further, Telco company Dialog Axiat a crossing of 22mn shares at LKR8.8 with possible foreign investor participation, whilst Diversified counters such as John Keells Holdings, Aitken Spence and Banking counters Sampath Bank, Commercial Bank, Hatton National Bank and National Development Bank also witnessed crossings.

Furthermore, Dialog Axiata, PC House, John Keells Holdings, Touchwood and Blue Diamonds (non-voting) topped the list in terms of volume traded during the week.

The week saw foreign purchases amounting to LKR 1,325.9 mn whilst foreign sales amounted to LKR 465.7 mn. Market capitalisation stood at LKR 2,324.8bn and the YTD performance is 7.0%.

Foreign investor interest regains momentum, whilst possibility of a further rate cut looms..
The market ended the week in the green breaking a 7-week WoW losing streak which saw the ASI’s YTD performance halving over the period.

However, this turnaround came about in the 11th hour on account ofinstitutional interest in John Keells Holdings which dragged the index up to record a WoW gain. This contrastedwith the USD/LKR exchange rate which depreciated over the week and reached a 10 week low on Wednesday. Thiswas despite the heightened open market operations conducted by the Central Bank in the aftermath of the revision made to the reserve ratio. The Central Bank governor attempted to reassure financial markets by providing some forward guidance with regard to policy rates stating that if the inflation rate and growth rates remain at manageable levels, a further cut in policy rates would be a possibility in September-October. This is possibly in response to the fact that several rounds of monetary easing coupled with the CBSL’s moral suasion have failed to produce a material impact on market interest rates. In spite of these developments foreign investors have been net buyers into equities during the week with a net foreign inflow of LKR860.2 mn reversing the previous week’s subdued performance which could be regarded as foreign investors confidence in the future prospects of the equities market.
