SE Asia Stocks-Most gain; Vietnam closes at all-time peak

* Vietnam jumps nearly 2 pct to record close
* Malaysian shares only losers in region
* Asian shares ex-Japan edge higher

    By Aaron Saldanha
April 2 (Reuters) - Vietnam shares ended at an all-time high on Monday, while most other Southeast Asian markets posted gains as broader Asian stocks climbed on the first trading day of the quarter.
Vietnam stocks  rose 1.9 percent to close at an all-time high of 1,196.61, helped by financials and real estate
Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Foreign Trade of Viet Nam and real estate firm Vingroup JSC   climbed 5
percent each, with Vingroup setting a fresh closing record.
Vietnam's steep 21.6 percent rise this year, building on last year's 48 percent gain, has made it Asia's most expensive
market in price-to-earnings terms.  

Philippine shares  .PSI  recovered from early losses,closing up 0.8 percent, on strength in industrials, as trading
resumed after the holidays on Thursday and Friday.
Financial stocks fell after a rights issue of Bank of the Philippine Islands  BPI.PS  was priced at a 23.5 percent
discount to the stock's close on Wednesday. The stock ended 1.7 percent lower in the session.
However, the Philippine market turnover was weak as investors and traders continue to return from the Easter break,
said Luis Limlingan, managing director, Regina Capital Development Corp.
Thai shares  .SETI  gained about 0.3 percent as PTT Global Chemical PCL  PTTGC.BK  rose 2.1 percent and Kasikornbank   ended 1.4 percent higher.
Thailand's annual headline inflation rate picked up in March, but missed forecasts and was below the central bank's
target range, giving policymakers leeway to keep monetary policy loose to help economic growth.  

Singapore shares edged 0.1 percent higher on real estate and industrials, with Jardine Matheson Holdings Ltd 
climbing 0.9 percent.
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  also rose, boosted by consumer staples and consumer discretionary stocks.
Data showed Indonesia's annual inflation rate accelerated in March compared with a month earlier, but remained well within the central bank's target range.     
Astra International Tbk PT  ASII.JK  climbed 3.4 percent, while Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Persero)  TLKM.JK  rose 1.9 percent.
The index of the country's 45 most liquid stocks gained 1.4 percent.
Meanwhile, Malaysian shares  .KLSE  slipped 0.3 percent on losses in telecom stocks and financials, with Malayan Banking Bhd  MBBM.KL  shedding 0.8 percent.
