SE Asia Stocks - Higher as oil recovers; set for gains on week

Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Friday as a rebound in global oil prices lured investors back to energy shares, with Malaysia and the Philippines seeing robust gains ahead of a three-day weekend.
Kuala Lumpur's composite index  .KLSE  advanced 0.8 percent to its highest level since Aug. 14. It is on course for a weekly gain of 2.5 percent, among the outperformers in the region.
The Philippine index  .PSI  rose 0.7 percent, but is poised for a weekly drop of almost 3 percent.
Malaysia and the Philippines will be closed on Monday for a public holiday.
Shares in Singapore  .FTSTI , Indonesia  .JKSE  and Vietnam  .VNI  extended gains from the day before, and were on track to end the week higher.
Among top gainers were Indonesia's Astra Agro Lestari  AALI.JK , Malaysia's Sapurakencana Petroleum  SKPE.KL, Philippine Petron Corp  PCOR.PS  and Singapore's Sembpcorp Marine  SCMN.SI , with crude oil futures rising on Friday, adding to their biggest one-day rally in over six years the day before. O/R  
In Bangkok, the SET index  .SETI  was up 0.8 percent, led by an 8 percent surge in shares of energy explorer PTT Exploration and Production  PTTEP.BK .
The SET is on course for a modest rise on the week after a more-than-5-percent plunge the week before after a deadly bomb blast in Bangkok spurred foreign selling.  
The military government's plan for economic stimulus measures also helped buoy sentiment, brokers said.
"Energy shares should lead the overall market higher today, and we would continue to focus on stocks that will benefit from coming economic stimulus measures," said strategists at broker Krungsri Securities in a report.  
Asian shares extended a global rally on Friday after upbeat U.S. economic data calmed sentiment, with Chinese stocks jumping for the second day following a rocky start to the week.
