SE Asia Stocks-Philippines gains on technical rebound; Indonesia down
Philippine shares on Thursday recouped previous session's losses to end higher as industrials and
financials rallied, while Indonesia closed lower after the much-watched first round election for Jakarta governor produced no clear outcome.
Unofficial sample vote counts pointed to a second round between the incumbent Basuki Tjahaja Purnama and Anies Baswedan, a former education minister, after neither appeared to win a majority in Wednesday's election.
The General Elections Commission is expected to announce official results in around two weeks, and the earliest a second round will be held is April.
The Jakarta SE Composite index .JKSE ended the session 0.1 percent lower, dragged down mainly by financial stocks.
PT Bank Mandiri Tbk BMRI.JK fell 2 percent to close at its lowest level in nearly two weeks. The biggest Indonesian bank by assets reported a 32 percent drop in its 2016 net profit on Tuesday. Trading volumes were nearly thrice the 30-day average.
Bank Negara Indonesia (Persero) Tbk PT BBNI.JK fell 1.6 percent in heavy trade.
Philippine shares .PSI closed 1.5 percent higher. The index had fallen significantly in the last two trading sessions.
"We are the outlier in the region, but again it's a technical rebound," said Victor Felix, equity analyst at AB
"There is a lack of catalysts right now ... starting end of this month or beginning of next month we should see a downtrend coming up to the (U.S. Federal Reserve) meeting."
Conglomerate SM Investments Corp SM.PS gained 2.9 percent, while JG Summit Holdings Inc JGS.PS rose 3.8 percent to its highest close since Jan. 30.
Singapore index .STI extended gains to close 0.3 percent higher, boosted by financials and industrials.
Top lender DBS Group Holdings Ltd DBSM.SI gained 1.7 percent despite posting its lowest quarterly profit in two
Thai Beverage PCL TBEV.SI extended gains to rise 2.1 percent to its highest close in three months.
Vietnam stocks .VNI snapped four sessions of gains to close 0.3 percent lower, off from the nine-year high hit earlier
in the session.
Banks, which led the previous session's rally, were the biggest drags on the index. Vietcombank VCB.HM fell 1 percent
to its lowest close in more than three weeks.
