SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia, Malaysia rebound; more outflows seen

Stocks in Indonesia and Malaysia snapped a five-day losing streak, while Singapore rebounded on Thursday, as battered regional currencies recovered but outflows in Southeast Asia suggested funds were still cautious after China's yuan move.
Indonesia was an outperformer, with stocks measured by the broader Jakarta composite index  .JKSE  up 2.3 percent, after falling for a fifth straight day in the previous session to its lowest closing level since Feb. 2014.
Palm oil producers such as Astra Agro Lestari  AALI.JK  and Sinarmas Agro Resources and Technology  SMAR.JK  rallied on expectation they would benefit from a weaker rupiah  IDR=ID .
Most emerging Asian currencies rose on Thursday as the yuan's decline slowed following Chinese central bank efforts to calm global markets after its devaluation earlier this week.

Indonesia posted net foreign selling of 1.17 trillion rupiah ($85.15 million), for the eighth straight day.
Malaysia  .KLSE  gained 0.7 percent as local institutions bought shares, while foreign investors sold a net 111 million ringgit ($27.69 million), for the sixth successive day.
Singapore  .FTSTI  rose 1 percent, its first gain in three days. Thai stocks  .SETI  were down 0.3 percent, trimming some early losses, with foreign investors net sellers for an eighth day.

The Philippine index  .PSI  ended lower for a second day and Vietnam  .VNI  fell for a third straight day to a six-week low after the central bank widened its currency trading band.
