SE Asia Stocks-End lower for 2nd session; Vietnam down over 3 percent

Southeast Asian shares shed most of January's gains and ended lower for a second straight session on Tuesday as an overnight plunge on Wall Street triggered a rout in equities worldwide.  
Most markets, however, staged a partial recovery towards the end of the session after U.S. stock futures  ESc1  changed course to rise 1.3 percent during Asia trading hours, signalling a likelihood of recouping losses when Wall Street opens.  
Asian shares ended lower, with the MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  sliding 3.5  percent.      
The market reaction is slightly exaggerated, said Taye Shim, head of research at Mirae Asset Sekuritas.

"We are looking at situations where prices seem to have picked up a bit fast. However, I do not believe we are in a
bubble situation."

The correction is likely to continue for a while and presents a good opportunity for investors to collect attractive
assets, added Shim.

The Philippine main index  .PSI  closed 0.8 percent lower, after dropping as much as 2.7 percent earlier, as financials

Philippine annual inflation accelerated much faster than expected in January, data showed, increasing the chances of an interest rate hike this week. 
Aboitiz Equity Ventures Inc  AEV.PS , down over 4 percent, was the top loser. The Bank of the Philippine Islands  BPI.PS  slid 3.1 percent while Ayala Corp  AC.PS  hit a two-month low.

Singapore shares  .STI  dropped 2.2 percent to a one-month low, as financials fell.  
Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp  OCBC.SI  and United Overseas Bank Ltd  UOBH.SI  marked their steepest drop in over 2-1/2 years while DBS Group Holdings  DBSM.SI  dived as much as 4.3 percent.
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  ended 1.7 percent lower after shedding as much as 2.5 percent.  
"The Indonesian market is a little stronger, less impacted by the market retreat. But obviously, the strength in the
fundamentals of the economy is putting up well," said Shim.
Vietnam  .VNI , which as of Friday's close was the only Southeast Asian stock market with double-digit percentage gains this year, slumped 3.5 percent in the session, at a month's low.
While Thai  .SETI  and Malaysian  .KLSE  shares gave away 1.2 percent and 2.2 percent, respectively.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

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
