SE Asia Stocks - Snap losing streak; foreign selling caps gains

 Southeast Asian stock markets rebounded on Tuesday as bargain hunting emerged in battered stocks across Asia and share buybacks by some companies helped the key stock indexes in Indonesia and Thailand regain some lost ground.
The Singapore Straits Times Index  .FTSTI  climbed 1.5 percent, recouping early losses and after dropping more than 4 percent in the previous session. Banking shares such as DBS Group Holdings  DBSM.SI  led the rebound.

"Bargain hunting and short covering buoyed blue chips and selective buying of the REITS were notable as some money managers started to nibble," broker NRA Capital said in a report.

Bargain hunters helped Asian stocks bounce off three-year lows, though share markets in China, epicentre of the rout,
suffered another big sell-off.  

In Jakarta, shares in state-controlled firms rallied after they started buying back their shares from Tuesday, led by a 7
percent surge in Semen Indonesia.  

The broader stock index  .JKSE  rose 1.6 percent after a 4 percent loss on Monday.  
In Bangkok, shares of PTT Global Chemical  PTTGC.BK , which hit an all-time closing low on Monday, surged almost 10 percent after the company announced a share buyback plan. The SET index  .SETI  rose 1.8 percent after Monday's third straight loss.

The Philippine stock index  .PSI  ended up 0.6 percent after early weakness. Local investors collected beaten-down shares such as Megaworld  MEG.PS  which surged 8.4 percent, the biggest gainer.

Foreign investors continued selling shares, offloading 2.75 billion peso ($59.04 million) worth.
Buying led by domestic institutions sent Malaysian shares  .KLSE  about 2 percent higher, while foreign investors sold shares worth a net 338 million ringgit ($80.28 million).
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  ended up 0.58 percent after falling to an eight-month low the previous day.

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber

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
