SE Asia Stocks-Most rise as U.S. rate concerns ease
* Philippine shares rise more than 1 pct
* Focus on Jerome Powell's first congressional testimony
* Thai shares come off record high, close slightly down
By Aditya Soni
Feb 27 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets closed higher on Tuesday, tracking Wall Street as a fall in U.S.
Treasury yields eased concerns about rising interest rates.
Wall Street finished near three-week highs on Monday ahead of Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell's long-awaited first
congressional testimony later on Tuesday.
"Investors appear less concerned by U.S. rate hikes than at any point this month, which is what is providing the positive
tone in global equity markets," said Stephen Innes, head of trading for Asia Pacific at Oanda.
Powell's testimony will be scrutinized for clues on the pace of Fed's policy normalisation following years of stimulus.
Philippine shares .PSI rose 1.1 percent, outperforming other markets in the region.
Industrials and financials were the top performers, with BDO Unibank Inc BDO.PS surging 4.7 percent and JG Summit Holdings
Inc JGS.PS climbing 5.6 percent.
Malaysian shares .KLSE firmed 0.6 percent, led by a rally in financials.
CIMB Group Holdings CIMB.KL , Malaysia's second-largest lender, climbed 1.3 percent to its highest close since late
August 2014, while Hong Leong Bank Bhd HLBB.KL rose to a record close.
Vietnam shares .VNI added 0.5 percent, extending gains into a third session, while Indonesian stocks .JKSE rose 0.7
percent, driven by materials. Cement producer Indocement Tunggal Prakarsa Tbk PT INTP.JK accounted for most of the gains with a jump of 9.3 percent to its highest close since Jan. 18 .
Thai shares .SETI came off a record high hit earlier in the session to close down 0.2 percent. Convenience store
operator CP All PCL CPALL.BK fell 1.5 percent and accounted for most of the decline.
Singapore shares .STI fell 0.4 percent, dragged by a near 2 percent fall in DBS Group Holdings DBSM.SI , the city-state's
biggest company by market capitalisation.
