The market closed modestly up with the ASPI increasing 1.1% to end the trading session at 5667. Turnover recorded LKR629.7 mn with trading in John Keells Holdings and Ceylon Guardian Investment Trust accounting for 66% of the days total. Gainers marginally offset losers with Environmental Resources Investments(W003), Environmental Resources Investments(W006) and Ceylon Leather(W0013) rising by 33.3%, 25.0% and 20.0% and offsetting declines in Royal Palms Beach Hotels, Kahawatte Plantations and Lanka Ceramic which fell by 8.7%, 7.7% and 5.4% respectively. Meanwhile, World shares climbed to a near one-month high and oil and government bonds slipped, helped by receding expectations of US-led military action against Syria and after better-than-expected Chinese data.

Market Trajectory Given the fact that most investors would now agree that the potential for short term trading opportunities are markedly limited, selecting medium to longer term investments would depend on a number of parameters, most importantly the strength of the top line and its sustainability. While we do not rule out the importance of earnings as a strong indicator of growth, it is highly important to determine the source of profits, whether a result of top line growth or an increase in other income or a dramatic cut in costs that could have a negative impact on future productivity. Of perhaps even more significance is the sustainability of such earnings. In this respect, while we advise investors to seek quality, both in terms of the top line and the bottom line, we accentuate the need to select stocks that may not only pass the quality test in terms of fundamentals but are also sufficiently liquid.
