SE Asia Stocks-Mostly down; banking stocks drag Singapore lower
JAKARTA, April 29 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock indexes fell on Friday amid weakness in global markets, with Singapore leading the losses, dragged by banking stocks on lower earnings, and Indonesian shares declining on selling by foreign investors.
Singapore's Straits Times Index .STI fell 0.8 percent, concluding the week with a 3.5 percent loss, its worst weekly
decline in more than three months.
Three heavy-weight banking stocks pulled the Singapore index lower, with Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Ltd OCBC.SI falling 1.46 percent after its March quarter earnings missed analysts'forecast.
Shares of rivals United Overseas Bank Ltd UOBH.SI and DBS Group Holdings DBSM.SI fell more than 1 percent each.
Indonesia's main stock index .JKSE closed 0.2 percent lower, dragged by market heavyweights PT Unilever Indonesia
UNVR.JK and PT Gudang Garam GGRM.JK .
"So far, 30 companies under our coverage have reported their first-quarter financials with aggregate earnings growth being 1 percent year-on-year which was quite disappointing, even though on a quarter-on-quarter the growth was still on an upward trend," Maybank KimEng Indonesia wrote.
Foreign investors were seen offloading local equities on Friday, their fourth straight session of selling.
Philippine stocks .PSI closed marginally lower, while Malaysian .KLSE shares fell 0.1 percent.
Bucking the trend, the Thai stock index .SETI posted its first gain in three sessions and Vietnam's .VNI index jumped 1.1 percent.
Most Southeast Asian markets will be closed on Monday for Labour Day, with the exception of Indonesia and the Philippines.
