Manila–(PHStocks)–Local shares made history this week as the bellwether Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) stocks surge past the 5,000-point mark to close at 5,016.30 points – up 2.52% from last week and higher by 14.74% to date.

On a weekly basis, the Property index registered a 3.47% growth, while the Financials index went up by 2.28%.

One reason for the local stocks’ rally is the pick-up by foreign investors.
