SE Asia Stocks-Mixed; Thailand rises after five sessions of losses

Southeast Asian stock markets ended mixed on Friday with Thailand bouncing back from a near six-week low hit earlier in the session on the back of bargain-hunting after five straight sessions of losses.
The Thai SET Index  .SETI  gained 0.95 percent on Friday, but posted a weekly fall of 2.2 percent as weak oil prices hit energy stocks.     
"For short-term strategy, any dips should be taken as an opportunity to accumulate positions," Phillip Capital in Bangkok said.
The Philippines  .PSI  gained 0.2 percent on Friday, led by property developer Robinsons Land Corp  RLC.PS  with a gain of 2.1 percent.
Singapore's Straits Times Index  .STI  dropped as much as 1.1 percent before recovering some lost ground to close 0.2
percent lower. It fell 0.4 percent for the week, its third straight weekly drop.   
Lack of positive domestic catalysts and concerns over first-quarter results in Indonesia caused a 0.4 percent fall in
the Jakarta Composite Index  .JKSE , said Trimegah Securities.  
Banking stocks led the losses with two of the country's largest banks as top decliners. Shares of PT Bank Mandiri Tbk
BMRI.JK  dropped 4.37 percent, their biggest fall since Feb. 19, while PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia Tbk  BBRI.JK  fell 2.7 percent.    
Indonesian companies will start reporting first-quarter results later this month.
