SE Asia Stocks-Muted ahead of U.S. inflation data

* Ayala Land helps Philippines end higher
* Singapore, Thailand down 0.4 percent
Southeast Asian stock markets were subdued on Wednesday ahead of U.S. inflation numbers, with
Thailand recording its lowest close in three sessions weighed down by financials and energy stocks.
All eyes are on U.S. consumer price readings due later in the day that will be key to where stocks move in the short term,
given it was the risk of accelerating inflation that sparked the recent global equity rout.  MKTS/GLOB  
Thailand  .SETI  dropped 0.4 percent with PTT PCL  PTT.BK  falling 1.6 percent and Bank of Ayudhya PCL  BAY.BK  losing 2.2 percent.  
The country's central bank left its benchmark interest rate unchanged on Wednesday, near record lows, saying it expects inflation to stay largely subdued.   
"For the most part we were dominated by a hefty dose of dollar weakness ahead of a very important U.S. CPI data report.

Traders are positioning for weaker inflation data amidst broader position adjustments," said Stephen Innes, head of trading for Asia Pacific at Oanda.  
Singapore shares  .STI  slid 0.4 percent, dragged down by financials.  
"Certainly, China Lunar New Year is factoring into the equation as traders reduce exposures." Innes added.     
The country's fourth-quarter economic growth was revised lower on a quarter-on-quarter basis on Wednesday, due to a contraction in the manufacturing sector.   
Heavyweights Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Ltd  OCBC.SI  and United Overseas Bank Ltd  UOBH.SI  reported strong quarterly net profit growth but downgraded their exposure to the weak oil and gas sector, making them the biggest losers on the index.  
Philippine shares  .PSI  recovered to end 0.3 percent higher led by real estate stocks. Ayala Land Inc  ALI.PS  was the top gainer on the index after posting a 21 percent jump in full-year net income.  
Malaysia  .KLSE  closed slightly up, gaining some support from data that showed its economy expanded 5.9 percent in the fourth quarter, growing more strongly than expected.
Financials and materials outperformed other sectors on the index, with CIMB Group Holdings Bhd  CIMB.KL  adding 0.9 percent and Petronas Chemicals Group Bhd  PCGB.KL  rising 1.3 percent.
Indonesia shares  .JKSE  rose 0.3 percent to their highest close in almost two weeks. Vietnam was closed for a holiday.  
 Market               Current     Previous close   Pct Move
 Singapore          3402.86          3415.07           -0.36
 Bangkok            1792.09          1800.03           -0.44
 Manila                8598.11         8570.14             0.33
 Jakarta                6594.401       6578.178           0.25
 Kuala Lumpur    1834.93         1833.02             0.10

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
