SE Asia Stocks-Singapore leads regional decline; oil dents sentiment

Southeast Asian stock markets ended mixed on Wednesday, with the Singapore benchmark suffering
its worst drop in more than a month after the release of fourth-quarter economic data, while volatility in global oil
prices dented risk sentiment in Asia.
The Straits Times Index  .STI  dropped 1.95 percent, its biggest single-day loss since Jan. 20, after
better-than-expected economic growth in the fourth quarter, but the key manufacturing sector showed signs of weakness.
Malaysia  .KLSE  hit an over-one-week closing low after the inflation rate in January surged to its fastest level in nearly two years. The Philippines  .PSI  retreated after weak import data in December and ahead of a public holiday on Thursday.
Bangkok's SET index  .SETI  closed at a near-three-month peak, Jakarta's composite index  .JKSE  edged slightly higher and Vietnam  .VNI  climbed 1.2 percent.
Foreign investors sold shares in most markets, led by a net 343 billion rupiah ($25.59 million) worth of Indonesian stocks.
