SE Asia Stocks-Rise on strong US jobs data; Thailand outperforms Southeast Asian stocks rose on Monday,
with Thailand outperforming other markets in the region, after strong U.S. jobs data raised the possibility of a rate hike by
the Federal Reserve this year.
Thailand's stock market index  .SETI  rose to its highest since April 2015 after Thais voted in a referendum to accept a
new military-backed constitution that would pave the way for an election next year.  
The vote should reduce political uncertainty in Southeast Asia's second-largest economy and encourage incoming foreign
fund flows, analysts said.  
The index closed 1.6 percent higher and posted its fourth session of gains, led by telecom services and financials.  
Shares of Kasikornbank  KBANK.BK  rose 5 percent, while convenience store chain CP All  CPALL.BK  advanced 2.4 percent.  
Asian shares rose, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  hitting its
highest since Aug. 11 last year, as investors' hunt for yield gathered momentum against a backdrop of a recovering U.S.
economy and ultra-easy easy global monetary policy conditions.

Singapore shares  .STI  surged as much as 2 percent in their biggest intraday percentage rally since June 30, with financial
and consumer services stocks driving the gains. They closed 1.5 percent higher.
DBS Group Holdings Ltd  DBSM.SI  rose 1.4 percent, while Jardine Cycle & Carriage Ltd  JCYC.SI  gained 3.4 percent.
The Jakarta Composite Index  .JKSE  rose 0.7 percent and  the Philippine index  .PSI  gained 0.3 percent, with both
markets helped by gains in financials.
Vietnam shares  .VNI  rose 0.3 percent, led by utility stocks Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corporation  GAS.HM  and Pha
Lai Thermal Power Joint Stock Company  PPC.HM .
