SE Asia Stocks-Fall ahead of Yellen testimony; S'pore down over 1 pct

Southeast Asian shares fell on Tuesday, as investors turned cautious ahead of U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's congressional testimony that could give clues on the pace of interest rate hikes.
Regional markets, which spiralled down in early trade on a strong dollar, drew no respite though the greenback eased after U.S President Donald Trump's national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned over Russian contacts.

from a three-week high hit on Monday.

year and had hit an 18-month high in the previous session.
Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Ltd  OCBC.SI  lost 3.3 percent after the city-state's second biggest lender reported an 18-percent dip in fourth-quarter profit on bad debt charges.
Top lender DBS Group Holdings Ltd  DBSM.SI , which is expected to report earnings later this week, fell 3.4 percent to close at its lowest since Jan 19. United Overseas Bank Ltd  UOBH.SI  shed 1.6 percent.
Singapore banks are taking a hit as companies in the oilfield services industry restructure their bonds and loans in
a weak operating environment. They are also being impacted by low interest rates and a sluggish overall economy.
Philippines  .PSI  fell 1.2 percent, dragged down by industrial and real estate stocks.
The index is undergoing a correction after testing a resistance at 7,300 level in the previous session, according to
Mikey Macainag, an analyst with Manila-based Sunsecurities Inc.
Conglomerate SM Investments Corp  SM.PS  declined 2.5 percent to close at its lowest in more than a month, while
Property developer SM Prime Holdings Inc  SMPH.PS  shed 2.6 percent.  
International Container Terminal Services Inc  ICT.PS  closed 2.6 percent down, at its lowest in almost four weeks,
after the company said an agreement to operate a port in Brunei would not be renewed.
Thai shares  .SETI  fell 0.8 percent, with losses in energy and industrial stocks weighing heavily on the index.
Energy conglomerate PTT PCL  PTT.BK , down 2.5 percent, weighed most on the index while Airports of Thailand PCL  AOT.BK  shed 2.5 percent.
