SE Asia Stocks-Singapore, Thailand climb; Vietnam falls sharply

 * Financials, energy boost Singapore, Thailand
    * Vietnam falls 1 pct; posts third losing session in four
    * Philippines extends losses to third session
    By Karthika Suresh Namboothiri
Feb 1 (Reuters) - Singapore and Thai stock markets closed higher on Thursday, drawing support from the financial and
energy sectors, while Southeast Asia's top year-to-date percentage gainer, Vietnam, fell for the third session in four.
Broader Asian shares slipped after Chinese stocks retreated and as concerns about rising interest rates softened investor sentiment.   
The U.S. Federal Reserve on Wednesday flagged interest policy tightening later this year and upgraded its inflation
outlook at its policy meeting.
However, data showing strong manufacturing activity in the start of the year in China and other major Asian economies  helped reinforce expectations of robust global growth.
Thai shares  .SETI  climbed 0.4 percent, led by gains in financials and energy stocks.
Thailand's annual headline inflation rate eased in January, missing forecasts and below the central bank's target range, giving policymakers room to keep interest rates low, commerce ministry data showed on Thursday.  

PTT Pcl  PTT.BK  closed 1.3 percent higher and PTT Exploration and Production Pcl  PTTEP.BK  surged to a near
three-year closing high.
Singapore  .STI  firmed 0.4 percent, boosted mainly by financials.
United Overseas Bank Ltd  UOBH.SI  climbed more than 2 percent, while DBS Holdings  DBSM.SI  closed at a one-week high.
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  fell marginally as gains in financials were offset by losses in consumer and
telecommunications stocks.
The country's annual inflation rate in January eased to its lowest since December 2016, the statistics bureau said on
Thursday, on weak housing and utility prices.  
The Philippine index  .PSI  erased earlier gains to close 0.3 percent lower, marking a third consecutive losing session.
Industrials dragged the index, with Aboitiz Equity Ventures  AEV.PS  ending more than 2 percent lower, and SM Prime Holdings  SMPH.PS  falling to its lowest close in nearly seven weeks.
The Philippine central bank said on Wednesday that annual inflation in January may hit the upper end of the government's target range of 2.0 percent to 4.0 percent for this year, boosted by higher prices of oil and food.

Vietnam stocks  .VNI , the only market in the region with double-digit gains in percentage terms since the start of this year, fell to their lowest close in 10 days, shedding 1 percent.
Malaysia remained closed for a public holiday.
 Market               Current    Previous close     Pct Move
 Singapore          3547.23         3533.99             0.37
 Bangkok            1833.6           1826.86             0.37
