SE Asia Stocks-Edgy as Russia sanctions unnerve investors

Most Southeast Asian stock markets were largely tepid on Thursday, as concerns over U.S. President Donald Trump signing the Russia sanctions bill kept investors on edge.
Trump grudgingly signed into law new sanctions against Russia on Wednesday, a move Moscow said amounted to a full-scale trade war and an end to hopes for better ties with the Trump administration.  

"I think it (Trump signing off new sanctions against Russia) is a clear indication that geopolitical risk might escalate,"
said Taye Shim, head of research at Jakarta-based Mirae Asset Sekuritas.

The overall profit-taking streak trickled down to Southeast Asia as well, with Indonesia  .JKSE  falling the most in the
region. The index closed 0.8 percent down.
Losses were led by financials and technology stocks, with Bank Central Asia Tbk PT  BBCA.JK  and Indoritel Makmur Internasional Tbk PT  DNET.JK  ending 0.9 percent and 1.7 percent down, respectively.
Southeast Asia's largest economy is expected to report second quarter GDP growth data on August 7.  

Expectations regarding the GDP growth are low given the fact that there are growing concerns over the purchasing power of Indonesians and the consumption recovery story, said Shim.

An index of the country's 45 most liquid stocks  .JKLQ45  declined 0.8 percent.
Singapore shares  .STI  ended 0.2 percent lower, as oil and gas, and telecom stocks took a hit.  
Rig builder Sembcorp Industries  SCIL.SI  lost 0.6 percent, while StarHub Ltd  STAR.SI  lost 1.1 percent after reporting a 21 percent drop in quarterly net profit on Wednesday.
Vietnam shares  .VNI  closed up 0.3 percent on the back of gains in financials and consumer stocks.
