Banking giants such as BDO Unibank, Bank of PI, and Metrobank recorded gains, contributing to a modest 0.79 percent rise in the Financials sub-index, while other institutions like Security Bank and Union Bank faced declines.


The Industrial sector fell by 1.29 percent, Holding Firms by 0.52 percent, Services by 0.46 percent, Mining and Oil by 0.36 percent, and Property by 0.71 percent, as investors' enthusiasm was dampened by the surge in the inflation rate and the expected continuation of high-interest rates.

Market bellwether went down by P10 to P953, one of 104 losers for the day, which had 78 gainers and 58 shares unchanged.
