Market Outlook
The market closed the week on a negative note with the ASPI losing 0.9% to end at 6155. Turnover recorded LKR565 mn with trading in Distilleries, Sampath Bank and National Development Bank accounting for 39% of the total. Losers outpaced winners with SMB Leasing(X), Beruwala Walk Inn and Ceylon Leather(W0014) falling by 20.0%, 16.1% and 12.5% and offsetting advances in Good Hope, Colombo Investment Trust and Industrial Asphalts which rose by 19.0%, 14.4% and 11.6% respectively. Meanwhile, global markets fell as investors reacted negatively to the possible scaling back of the Fed’s stimulus measures later this year.
Market Trajectory In terms of market trajectory, we believe that the current price weakness in the bourse provides an opportunity for medium to long-term investors to pick up attractively priced growth stocks. Although sentiment and liquidity may impact the market in the near term, we believe that Sri Lanka’s structural story is intact and compelling with a strong multiplier effect on corporate EPS growth. Consequently we advise investors to enter the market in an informed manner carefully selecting sectors and counters that will fully benefit from positive domestic economics.

While we do admit that companies that have a high import or energy content as part of their cost structure or are significantly leveraged may continue to be challenged, robust volume growth however could enable them to generate firm revenues and cashflows. In this respect, we advise investors to seek high quality growth companies with the domestic focus in order to build a robust portfolio that will perform in a complete market cycle.
