Juan Liners: Throwback Sunday on Select Stock Prices Then and Now

Alliance Global (PSE: AGI): Another favorite. Back in global recession, this used to cost 4 each. Now, less than a decade later, stock price is now at 30.40.

Rate this:

Suddenly felt like doing a TBS: throwback Sunday or throwback stocks. Or some select stocks close to my heart and what their prices used to be (years or months or weeks ago) and now.
The Philippine stock market is once again gaining popularity with the bullish run towards 6800, with more and more newbies joining FB groups to ask around how it’s done, and more OFWs wanting to trade and/or invest and have a piece of the action. 

With the renewed interest from a wider “fan-base”, is the time to sell once again approaching? Sell in May and go away?

Caveat first. These TBS do not recommend a buy or sell rating. They just present some fun, cool, amazing or scary facts. The price movements described here may have taken years or months only, and I will no longer mention whether any stock dividends, stocks splits or follow on offerings along the way occurred, all of which could have affected the stock price one way or another. Who knows? The stocks right now may already be overvalued, or maybe not. So basically, it’s just a then and now.

Double Dragon (PSE: DD): IPO price at 2, with the run to 3, then 4. Rested a few days, reached 4.97 then a high of 7+ before closing at 6.7. I’d say this one’s exceptional, making all this run in less than a month. Hyped? Jockeyed? Fundamental? I leave it up to you. But as the traders say, the trend is your friend so regardless whether the run will be sustained and will last or not, as long as there is momentum, a killing can be made. For the brave of heart and risk-takers that is.

Meralco (PSE: MER): This happened years ago  when MVP and RSA suddenly had interest to acquire MER from the Lopezes. Trading at 40s only back then, the price shot up drastically. Now it’s trading at 273.

Megaworld (PSE: MEG): One of my favorites when I started investing in 2007. Trading at near 2 levels back then. Now it’s trading at 4.68.

Alliance Global (PSE: AGI): Another favorite. Back in global recession, this used to cost 4 each. Now, less than a decade later, stock price is now at 30.40.

JG Summit (PSE: JGS): Back in global recession, this also used to cost around  4 each. Now, less than a decade later, stock price is now at 50. #boompanes

Jollibee Corp (PSE: JFC): Price used to be at 40, then now it’s 174.

Manila Water (PSE: MWC): First stock I bought in 2007 priced at 16. Dropped to 10 during global financial crisis, now at 26. I’d think this is still affected by the regulatory issue it’s facing on tariff rates hence the price overhang. But once it gets resolved, plus the expansions in Boracay and Vietnam…

Philex Mining (PSE: PX): Just a couple of years ago, this gold miner was trading at 16. Disaster struck and it sustained damages in its spillways, incurring government suspension, operations stoppage and fines. It has been regularized and fixed since but prices dropped to 8 levels. Now threatening to break 10.

Bloombery Resorts (PSE: BLOOM): Reached 33 levels when news came out that the stock will be used as backdoor listing of Solaire owner Bloomberry. Dropped to 16 then to 8 levels. Now at 11.88.

Lessons? I leave it up to you. It was just fun reminiscing.

  1. COL Financial profit drops 16% in 9 months

    By Richmond Mercurio (The Philippine Star) | Updated November 21, 2014 – 12:00am

    MANILA, Philippines – Leading online stockbroker COL Financial Group Inc. said its third quarter profits soared over a quarter but earnings for the first nine months of the year declined double digits due to lower value turnover in the local stock exchange.

    In a regulatory filing, COL said its profits in the January to September period declined 16.1 percent to P249.3 million from P297 million last year.

    Its third quarter earnings, however, rose 28.4 percent year-on-year to P115.2 million despite a “challenging period for Philippine stock brokers in general as value turnover in the PSE remained weak.”

    COL said it was able to buck the downtrend through the steady growth of its client base.

    The company’s client base already stood at 104,242 as of end-September, 34.6 percent more than in the same period last year.

    With the increase in its client base, COL’s commission revenues improved 15.2 percent year-on-year to P120.1 million.

    “We are pleased to announce the continuous recovery of our profits for the third quarter. This is to no small part due to the growing number of Filipino investors who continue to put their trust in COL as their partner for achieving their long term financial goals,” said COL president and chief executive officer Dino Bate.

    COL said its market share in terms of value turnover in the PSE also grew 3.3 percent in the third quarter to 4.1 percent from 3.3 percent a year ago.
