Sri Lankan shares slip from 1-week high; foreigners buy

Post by sriranga on Mon Jun 03, 2013 10:33 pm

COLOMBO, June 3 (Reuters) - Sri Lankan shares slipped on Monday from their one-week high hit on Friday in thin trading, as retail investors booked profits in banking and hotel shares, but foreign buying in blue-chip companies helped an overbought market resist further fall.

The main stock index edged down 0.18 percent, or 11.38 points, to 6,451.68. It had closed at 6,463.06 on Friday, the highest since May 23, Reuters data showed.

Foreign investors accounted for around 54 percent of the day's turnover of 750.45 million rupees ($5.93 million), which was below this year's daily average of 1.05 billion rupees.

The bourse saw a net foreign inflow of 342.3 million rupees, extending year-to-date inflows to 14 billion rupees.

"The market is running on foreign buying. We will see continuous foreign buying with a bit of corrections," said a stockbroker asking not to be named.

The market's 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) was still in overbought territory, at 75.673 on Monday and has been above the upper neutral level of 70 since April 16, Thomson Reuters data showed.

Retail profit-taking pulled the banking index by 0.18 percent down, led by Commercial Bank of Ceylon which fell 1.05 percent.

Analysts, however, said falling interest rates helped investors to be still optimistic about the market.

The island nation's central bank unexpectedly cut its key monetary policy rates by 50 basis points on May 10 to boost economic growth in the face of subdued demand and the market interest rates have been falling since then.

The rupee ended weaker at 126.20/55 per dollar from Friday's close of 126.45/50 on importer and bank demand for the greenback, dealers said.

Bourse, rupee down, T-bond yields flat after inflation report

Post by sriranga on Mon Jun 03, 2013 11:51 pm

The Colombo bourse closed 0.18 percent lower yesterday with turnover topping Rs. 750 million dominated by trades in United Motors and Ceylon Tobacco.

The ASPI closed 11.38 points lower, down 0.18 percent, at 6,451.68 while the S&P SL20 closed 0.29 percent lower at 3,635.59, down 10.73 points.

Foreign purchases amounted to Rs. 403.21 million, leading to a net inflow of Rs. 342.28 million.

"The market opened the week to a lackadaisical start declining by a notch to end the session at 6,452. Turnover recorded Rs.750 million with trading in United Motors and Ceylon Tobacco accounting for 49 percent of the day’s total. Gainers matched losers with Swadeshi Industrial, Miramar Beach and Maskeliya rising by 50.0 percent, 17.4 percent and 17.4 percent and offsetting losses in Ceylon Printers, Nuwara Eliya Hotel and Multi Finance which fell by 16.6 percent, 11.1 percent and 9.6 percent respectively,"DNH Financial said.

In money markets, the rupee closed slightly weaker against the US dollar at Rs. 126.52/55 against the greenback from an opening position of Rs. 126.48/52.

"There was some thin importer demand," a currency dealer said.

The secondary Treasury bond market came to a standstill yesterday, dealers said with yields unchanged across most maturities with the exception of the year yield which closed down at 11.50/54 percent from 11.55/60 percent last Friday.

"After the inflation numbers came out last week, bond holders seem to be adopting a wait and see attitude," a dealer said.

Inflation accelerated to 7.3 percent in May from 6.4 percent in April largely due to the electricity price hike.

"The good news is that rupee liquidity was positive in the banking system with an excess position of Rs. 18 billion," a dealer said.
