  1. Indeed, stock market Philippines is still on a bull run. Many says that this will not last but the PSEi had proven it otherwise. What’s next after hitting 7,000? 8,000 probably by the end of the year?

    • Exactly. 8000 is, I believe, being conservative about it. I strongly believe we will be able to hit 8,500 by the end of the year — that is, barring any unforeseen major geopolitical events. But fundamentally speaking, more than 8000 is not impossible.
