Philippine and Malaysian shares underperformed the rest of Southeast Asia on Tuesday, pressured by foreign outflows after weak U.S. manufacturing data, while Thai stocks retreated after the Feb. 2 elections failed to resolve a political deadlock. 

The Thai SET index   ended down 1.2 percent in thin trading on prospects of more political turmoil as the opposition Democrat Party said it would seek a court ruling on whether Sunday's election was unconstitutional.  

The market racked up gains of more than 2 percent from Friday through Monday, helped in part by buying from domestic institutions though foreign investors were net sellers during the period.  

Fitch Ratings said further prolongation or intensification of the five-month political standoff could raise the risk of a lasting negative effect on economic performance and financial stability relative to its rating peers.  

Asian shares skidded on Tuesday as sentiment was weak after data showed U.S. manufacturing activity slowed sharply in January on the back of the biggest drop in new orders in 33 years.  

Indonesia's index  closed down 0.8 percent at a one-week low, the Philippine main index  dropped 2.2 percent to around three-week lows, while Malaysia  slipped  1.4 percent to its lowest since October 2013. 

Foreign investors sold shares in the Philippines and Malaysia worth a net 1.11 billion peso ($24.5 million) and 556 million ringgit ($166 million) respectively, stock exchange and Thomson Reuters data showed.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
