First Half Report


First Half Report 2015 Table 1, illustrates the total trading activity for the first half of 2015 compared to the activity which occurred for the corresponding period in 2014. Total trading volume increased by 8%, while total trading value increased by 13%. The Regular Market has shown improvement at the 2015 half-year close, however, Put Through Market performance continues to show declines in both volume and value traded when compared to performance for the corresponding period in 2014. There was no trading on the Junior or Block Trade Markets for the first half of 2015. Two securities were delisted from the board of the Exchange during the first half of 2015; there was one new listing1. There were no extra-ordinary transactions occurring on the board of the BSE for the first half of 2015.

Second quarter 2015 market performance showed improvement in the volumes traded, however, as share prices continue to be constricted, the values traded have not met the same level of performance as the volumes traded but have exceeded the 2014 figures. As illustrated in Table 2, total trading volume was up 57% with a corresponding increase in total trading value of 6%. The Regular Market was the only market to record a decrease in terms of value traded of 7% but a 52% increase in terms of volume traded while the Put Through Market activity recorded large increases - 609% in terms of volumes traded and 1386% in terms of value. There was no activity on the Junior or Block Trade Markets during the second quarter.

The results for both the Index and Market Capitalization measures were consistent when examined over the three, six and twelve month periods. For the second quarter of 2015, as illustrated in Table 10, only the Local Index recorded a nominal decrease of 0.03% when compared to its March 31st 2015 figure. When the comparison is extended to six months and twelve months (Table 11 and Table 12), all index measures recorded increases. The Local Index recorded the highest increase for the six month of 2.63% while the Cross-Listed Index recorded the largest increase over the twelve month of 3.66%. The upturn in index performance can be attributed to share price appreciation in seven securities most notable of which were One Caribbean Medial Limited, Insurance Corporation of Barbados Limited and FirstCaribbean International Bank. Figure 2 below tracks the Index movement over a twelve (12) month period. The Market Capitalization comparisons illustrated in Table 13-15, closely mirror the performance of the Index comparisons discussed above over the same three, six and twelve month periods. Figure 2

A look at four other regional exchanges in Table 18 below shows that there has been general improvement in performance in the Barbados (BSE), Trinidad & Tobago (TTSE) and Jamaica (JSE) markets, however, the Eastern Caribbean (ECSE) market continues to record negative index movements. The BSE Composite Index recorded increases over the three periods under examination, the largest being 2.35% over the six month period. The TTSE Composite Index also recorded its largest increase of 0.96% during this period while the JSE Market Index recorded its largest increase of 37.51% over the twelve month. The ECSE EC Share Index recorded declines of 14.7%, 13.49% and 12.9% for the three, six and twelve month respectively. Comparative index values for 2014 are provided for reference and illustrate definite improvements for the BSE, TTSE and JSE while the ECSE continues to experience a slump in performance. Looking towards the third quarter of 2015, we are ever hopeful that market conditions continue to improve. As part of its mission to foster an environment of confidence and trust in all activities in the capital markets through education, the BSE is set to host its third annual BSE Corporate Governance & Accountability Conference on September 24th and 25th, 2015 at the Hilton Barbados Resort. Attendees will be exposed to a host of topics including Enterprise Risk Management, Board Composition and Diversity as well as Cyber Security Threats and Mitigation.
