The Philippine Stock Index (PSEi) extended its decline to the month of Feb 2011. PSEi shed 2.96% in the month of February 2011 mainly due to lack of fresh leads, inflation fears in the emerging markets, the political crisis in Egypt, and the turmoil in Libya that pushes the oil price to $100 per barrel aggravating fears of inflation.
Our fund, on the other hand, managed to book some gain, thanks to well diversified portfolio. From a net asset value of 1.047 on Jan. 31, 2011, it increased by 0.88% to 1.056.
In this month of February, we added more shares of Globe Telecom, CEU, FEU and IPO.
