SE Asia Stocks-Most up; Singapore posts best gain since Oct 2011
Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose in line with Asia on Monday, with Singapore posting
its biggest single-day gain in more than four years and the Thai index snapping a two-day losing streak, as improving sentiment in Asia and global oil markets lured bargain hunters.
Singapore Straits Times Index .STI ended the day up 2.68 percent, its best gain since October 2011, with 28 of 30
large-caps measured by the index rising.
Among the top gainers, Singapore Telecommunications STEL.SI rose 4.5 percent after the company's earnings guidance while Keppel Corp KPLM.SI climbed 3.7 percent in line with other energy shares in the region after the recent rebound in oil prices.
The SET index .SETI advanced nearly 1 percent, reversing Friday's loss. Large-caps outperformed, led by a 4.5 percent jump in PTT Exploration and Production PTTEP.BK and a 2.9 percent rise in PTT Global Chemical PTTGC.BK .
Stocks in Indonesia .JKSE , Malaysia .KLSE and the Philippines .PSI reversed recent losses while Vietnam .VNI
ended slightly lower, led down by shares of real estate companies. urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL3N15U2AJ
Data in the region remained weak, with the Thai economy growing 0.8 percent in the fourth quarter, slowing slightly more than market expectations, while Indonesia posted a small trade surplus in January, confounding expectations for a third monthly deficit.
