SE Asia Stocks-Mostly down as investors focus on corporate results

Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended lower on Thursday after the U.S. Federal Reserve left interest rates unchanged, while investors keenly watched corporate earnings results.
The Malaysian share index  .KLSE  led the regional decline with a 1 percent loss, dragged by shares of power company Tenaga Nasional Bhd  TENA.KL , down 1.4 percent, and of cigarette firm British American Tobacco Bhd  BATO.KL , that fell 8.5 percent.
Tenaga posted a 39 percent fall in quarterly earnings on Wednesday, while British American Tobacco's earnings fell 29
percent, prompting target price cuts by several brokerage firms.
"The Fed meeting was a non-event, and both global and domestic markets continue to focus on fundamentals and
earnings," said Dang Maulida, an analyst with KDB Daewoo Securities in Jakarta.
The Fed left interest rates unchanged on Wednesday, but kept the door open for a hike in June.
Meanwhile, MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  trimmed its gains after the Bank of Japan kept its policy unchanged.  
Stocks in Thailand  .SETI  fell 0.8 percent while the Philippine index  .PSI  lost 0.3 percent.
Broker SB Equities said in note that the business community in the Philippines, which will elect a new president on May 9, is uncertain about concrete economic platform of the leading presidential candidate.
Philippine presidential hopeful Rodrigo Duterte had the chance to outline his economic policy agenda before scores of
big businessmen on Wednesday, but chose instead to talk about drugs, shootings and his libido.  
Bucking the trend, the Indonesian stock index  .JKSE  rose 0.1 percent, with shares of brewer PT Multi Bintang Indonesia
MLBI.JK  surging 16 percent to their highest close in six months after first-quarter earnings more than doubled from a
year earlier.
