SE Asia Stocks-Subdued as N.Korea tensions weigh

Southeast Asian stocks ended largely flat on Thursday as investors fretted about the simmering tensions
between the United States and North Korea, even as the previous day's rush to safe-haven assets appeared to slow.
Risk appetite in the region took a hit after North Korea said it was considering plans for a missile strike on the U.S.
island territory of Guam, just hours after U.S. President Donald Trump warned that any threat to the United States would be met with "fire and fury".  
Any news of a war or tension is always a reason for a sell-off, said Mikey Macainag, an analyst with Sunsecurities
Inc, adding that the regional markets were at greater risk owing to Southeast Asia's proximity to the epicentre of the crisis.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  dipped 0.7 percent, after briefly trading in positive territory earlier in the day.  
There is a lack of confidence in the market due to tensions as everybody is fearing a war, added Macainag.
In Southeast Asia, Philippines  .PSI  ended 0.3 percent lower, with consumer and energy stocks leading the losses.
"Some of the earnings disappointed, but some are just in line with the estimates. Investors are in a risk-off mode ahead
of GDP data expected next week," Macainag added.  ECONASIA  
The biggest loser on the index, JG Summit Holdings Inc  JGS.PS  lost 6.2 percent, while Petron Corp  PCOR.PS  ended 2.5 percent lower.  
The country's central bank left its benchmark interest rate unchanged on Thursday, in line with expectations.
Malaysia  .KLSE  ended flat as gains in consumer staples offset losses in consumer cyclicals. Government data showed
industrial production  MYIP=ECI  in June rose 4 percent from a year earlier. 
Bucking the trend, Singapore shares  .STI  closed marginally higher. The index gained as much as 0.8 percent earlier in the day, but gains were trimmed after financials reversed course.
A Reuters poll showed the city-state's economy may have grown more than previously estimated in the second quarter on strong manufacturing. The data is expected to be released on Friday.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
