SE Asia Stocks-Philippines extends rise; Indonesia gives up early gains

Philippine shares rose for a third straight session on Monday and outperformed other Southeast Asian markets, while Indonesian stocks reversed early gains to close lower following disappointing gross domestic product data.
Indonesia's GDP grew more slowly than expected in the second quarter as private consumption remained lethargic, adding to signs that Southeast Asia's largest economy is stuck in a low gear and may need more stimulus. 
"Weaker-than-expected second-quarter growth in Indonesia increases expectation that Bank Indonesia (BI) may resume rate cut," UOB Group said in a note.
The Jakarta SE Composite Index  .JKSE  rose as much as 0.6 percent before reversing its course to close 0.5 percent lower.
Consumer staples and telecom stocks were the biggest losers with Hanjaya Mandala Sampoerna Tbk PT  HMSP.JK  declining 2 percent and XL Axiata Tbk PT  EXCL.JK  shedding 1.2 percent.
Meanwhile, Philippine shares  .PSI  closed 0.8 percent higher, with consumer and telecom stocks leading the broad-based gains.  
"There seems to be some buying interest on account of anticipation of better second-quarter corporate earnings for
some blue chips," said Manny Cruz, an analyst with Manila-based Asiasec Equities Inc.
Conglomerate SM Investments Corp  SM.PS  ended 1.7 percent higher, while telecom company PLDT Inc  TEL.PS  rose 0.6 percent.
Among other Southeast Asian markets, Vietnam shares  .VNI  rose as much as 0.9 percent to their highest since February 2008, on the back of gains in energy and material stocks.
Vietnam National Petroleum Group  PLX.HM  closed 5 percent higher as global oil prices held near nine-week highs.      
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  rose for a fifth consecutive session, supported by gains in industrial and telecom stocks,
while Singapore  .STI  and Thailand  .SETI  ended slightly lower.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  gained 0.4 percent.
 Market                 Current       Previous Close     Pct Move
