SE Asia Stocks-Philippines gains; Singapore falls to 2-wk low
* Philippines marks first losing week in nine
* Vietnam posts first losing week in seven
* Malaysia comes off 3-yr high, closes slightly firmer
By Karthika Suresh Namboothiri
Feb 2 (Reuters) - Philippine stock market rose on Friday, after three consecutive sessions of steep losses, while
Singapore fell to its lowest close in two weeks.
Broader Asia stumbled, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS down more than 0.5 percent.
Most Southeast Asian stock markets posted weekly declines, led by a 2.6 percent drop in Philippine shares.
The Philippine index .PSI marked its first losing week in nine, although it firmed 0.8 percent in the session.
Conglomerate JG Summit Holdings JGS.PS gained 1.8 percent in the session, while property developer SM Prime Holdings SMPH.PS climbed 1.2 percent.
The Indonesian index .JKSE firmed 0.5 percent, boosted by financials, with Bank Central Asia BBCA.JK hitting a record close.
An index of the country's most liquid stocks .JKLQ45 ended 0.6 percent higher.
Vietnam .VNI erased earlier losses to end 0.5 percent higher, with financials leading the charge.
However, the market posted a 1 percent decline on the week, its first in seven.
Meanwhile, Singapore shares .STI fell 0.5 percent, bringing the weekly drop to 1 percent.
Real estate and industrial stocks took a beating, with CapitaLand Ltd CATL.SI falling over 2 percent to a more than
three-week low and Hutchison Port Holdings HPHT.SI hitting its lowest close in nearly a year.
Thai shares .SETI slipped as much as 0.3 percent as a boost from energy stocks was outweighed by losses in consumer staples and real estate.
Malaysian index .KLSE ended marginally stronger in lacklustre trade, after touching its highest in more than three
years, as it resumed trade after two days of public holidays.
The only market in Southeast Asia to record a weekly gain ended the week 0.9 percent firmer.
