SE Asia Stocks-End lower as N. Korea tensions spook investors
Southeast Asian stock markets saw broad-based declines on Friday, with Indonesia and Singapore
falling over 1 percent each, as the continuing standoff between the U.S. and North Korea kept investors on edge.
Fresh bouts of fiery rhetoric came as U.S. President Donald Trump warned North Korea again not to strike Guam or its allies,
saying his earlier threat may not have been tough enough.
"If the war of words escalates into a military engagement, our estimates suggest a derailing of global growth, led by a
fall in both trade volumes and asset prices," said Barnabas Gan, an economist at OCBC Bank.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS skid 1.6 percent, its biggest one-day loss since
mid-December, while Wall Street closed sharply lower overnight.
Singapore's FTSE Straits Times Index .STI ended down 1.3 percent, marking its biggest percentage loss since Oct. 2016. It
ended the week 1.4 percent lower.
A better-than-expected revision to second-quarter economic growth in the city-state and a 1.9 percent rise in June retail sales failed to boost sentiment.
Financials and consumer goods led the decline, with DBS Group Holdings Ltd DBSM.SI ending 2.2 percent lower, while Thai Beverage PCL TBEV.SI lost 1.6 percent.
Indonesia .JKSE snapped three days of gains to end 1 percent lower, posting its worst day since December 2016. The
index shed 0.2 percent this week.
Financials and consumer stocks were the biggest drag on the index with Bank Central Asia Tbk PT BBCA.JK ending 0.8 percent lower.
The Philippine stock index .PSI fell for a fourth day, ending 0.5 percent lower, and was down marginally for the week.
While recent earnings may have weighed, the main drag on the index was the tension between the U.S. and North Korea, said Charles Ang, an analyst with Manila-based COL Financial.
Financials and utilities were the hardest hit, with Aboitiz Equity Ventures Inc AEV.PS closing 2.6 percent lower.
Vietnam .VNI closed slightly lower after a fourth session of losses. The index shed 2.1 percent this week.
