SE Asia Stocks-Largely up; Philippines outperforms ahead of cbank meeting
Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Monday, with the Philippines .PSI gaining the most ahead of a central bank policy meeting later this week where it is expected to keep rates unchanged.
There has been little indication from the central bank that any move on rates is forthcoming, DBS Group Research said in a note, adding market expectations may change depending on cues from policy statements.
Philippine shares rose nearly 1 percent on Monday, rising for a second straight session, and have gained more than 6
percent this year, outperforming other regional markets.
The Philippines underperformed other regional markets in the second half of 2016, "so in the same respect when they bounced back, we also bounced back more than others," said April Lee-Tan, head of research at Manila-based COL Financial.
Thai shares .SETI rose for the second straight session with Kasikornbank Pcl KBANK.BK hitting a three-month high.
The Bank of Thailand is expected to keep one-day repurchase rate THCBIR=ECI unchanged at 1.50 percent at its first policy meeting of the year on Wednesday.
The pressure on emerging markets has weakened as the dollar is on a falling trend after President Donald Trump's comments on currency devaluation by China, Japan and Germany, said Taye Shim, head of research at Mirae Asset Sekuritas.
"Investors are going to take another look at emerging-market assets," Shim said.
The dollar fell on Monday after U.S. data showed a smaller-than-expected rise in wages in January that reinforced
expectations the Federal Reserve will refrain from raising interest rates next month.
Indonesian shares .JKSE rose 0.7 percent, helped by financials with Bank Mandiri (Persero) BMRI.JK gaining 2.7
Southeast Asia's biggest economy grew 4.94 percent on an annual basis in the fourth quarter, compared with 5.01 percent in the preceding quarter.
Singapore .STI closed 0.5 percent higher, snapping two consecutive sessions of losses. Index heavyweight DBS Group Holdings DBSM.SI gained 1.4 percent in heavy trading.
