List of the 30 components of the PSEi index

The Philippine Stock Exchange logoIn the Philippines, large companies often become corporation to get listed on the stock exchange, comply with the regulatory agencies and gain access to capital from stock markets.

In the Philippines, such corporations are quoted in the Philippine Stock Exchange – PSE, which  is in charge of ensuring proper market conditions for the trading of the country’s stocks. The PSE is a member of the ASEAN Exchanges.

To develop trading and ease the evaluation of the Philippine market, the stock prices of the thirty largest corporations of the Philippines are compiled together to form the PSE Composite Index – abbreviated PSEi –, a capitalization-weighted index that is widely accepted as a reference index of the Philippines, among other indexes.

The PSEi index

The real time quotation of the PSE Composite Index – PSEi – can be followed from the Philippine Stock Exchange’s website and through the convenient graphical tools from Bloomberg or the ASEAN Exchanges. For more information on the PSEi index and the up-to-date weights of each stock, check the information from the PSE website.

  1. If ever I would like to buy a share, or invest in any of these companies how much is the minimum expenditure that I would need to spend to have a share or investment in the company? I know as of now I don’t have enough money to do that but I just ask this question to have an idea of what the best thing is to do with my money in the future. I hope you appreciate it, thank you in advance.

  2. If I buy shares from the companies listed above and their stocks go down, will I get deductions from the principal money that I invested? and how will I know if I can still recover it or not? Is there a way to see what seminar I may possibly attend?

    1. Hi Marvy,
      Well, you obviously need to learn about stocks investing and trading before buying anything.
      There are lots of risks associated with stocks and securities, but if you can manage your investments and portfolio properly, there can also be interesting rewards.
      You should probably start with the information available online from reliable sources (such as famous universities or international business media): some may have free resources and tutorials on their websites or Youtube channels.
      Cheers!
