SE Asia Stocks-Jittery on U.S. rate risks; Philippines sheds 1.1 pct
* Singapore falls 0.8 pct with broad-based losses
* Philippines, Vietnam hardest hit
Feb 22 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets were buffeted by a region-wide sell-off on Thursday as investors
fretted over the possibility of a quickening in U.S. interest rate hikes, with Vietnam and the Philippines bearing the brunt.
The U.S. Federal Reserve's rate-setting committee voiced more confidence in the need to keep raising interest rates at
its latest policy meeting, minutes released on Wednesday showed, with most believing that inflation would perk up.
E-Mini futures for the S&P 500 ESc1 lost 0.3 percent and FTSE futures FFIc1 slid 0.8 percent. Asia shares ex-Japan
.MIAPJ0000PUS dropped 1 percent.
Philippine shares .PSI shed 1.1 percent, dragged by index heavyweight SM Investments Corp SM.PS which slid 3.6 percent
to its lowest close since mid-November.
Ayala Corp AC.PS fell 2.5 percent.
The Singapore index .STI was down 0.8 percent, weighed down by industrials and financial stocks.
Lender DBS Group Holdings DBSM.SI retreated from recent all-time highs to fall 1.5 percent, while Keppel Corporation Ltd
KPLM.SI declined 2.2 percent.
Yangzijiang Shipbuilding Holdings Ltd YAZG.SI was the biggest loser on the index, slipping 4 percent to a one-week
Indonesian shares .JKSE fell for a third day, closing down 0.8 percent, with losses driven by financial stocks such as Bank
Negara Indonesia (Persero) which fell nearly 4 percent.
Vietnam .VNI slipped 1 percent, dragged by utility and consumer staples stocks. Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corp GAS.HM slumped 5.4 percent, while Vinamilk shed 1.1 percent.
Thai shares .SETI finished 0.7 percent lower, with losses across most sectors outweighing gains in energy stocks led by oil and gas giant which rose 3.5 percent.
PTT rose for a fourth session to post a record closing high.
