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

and consumer services stocks driving the gains. They closed 1.5 percent higher.
