Southeast Asian stocks rose on Tuesday with the Philippine benchmark at its highest close in almost two weeks and the Malaysian key index hitting a two-week high as investors sought large caps with better values in the reporting season.
A rally in Philippine index heavyweights, including SM Investments Corp and Metropolitan Bank & Trust, sent the key index 1.7 percent higher at 6,554.62, the highest close since Aug. 1.
The Malaysian index rose 0.6 percent to 1,795.09, the highest close since July 29, while Singapore's index edged up 0.4 percent, with CIMB Group Holdings and Singapore Telecommunications among the actively traded stocks.
The Thai SET index climbed 1.9 percent to 1,459.08, a two-week closing high, with dividend-yielding banks rising. However, investors largely awaited the parliamentary session later this month that will deliberate a borrowing bill for the 2-trillion-baht infrastructure investment, brokers said.
Vietnam pared earlier gains to fall 0.4 percent, bucking the regional trend.
