SE Asia Stocks-Higher; Singapore hits 18-month top
Southeast Asian markets ended higher on Wednesday, tracking Asian shares that rose taking cues from upbeat factory activity in Europe and solid earnings overnight on Wall Street.

"Regional markets are just tracking the U.S. markets higher.
The U.S. markets gained half a percent on Tuesday, so it's just tracking that," said an analyst from Singapore, who did not wish to be named.

United Overseas Bank UOBH.SI and Keppel Corp KPLM.SI both climbed more than 2 percent.
Philippine shares .PSI closed up 0.3 percent, pushed higher by a rally in Ayala Land ALI.PS towards close of trade.
Shares of Ayala Land rose 3.4 percent to their highest close in nearly 4 months.
Investors are "positioning ahead of release of quarterly earnings, which are trickling in slowly," said Jose Vistan, an
analyst at Manila-based AB Capital Securities. "If you are to position on the market being positive you obviously want to go with the industry leaders and Ayala Land is one of them."
