SE Asia Stocks-Most edge higher; Singapore snaps 4-session losing streak
Most Southeast Asian shares edged higher on Thursday tracking broader Asia while Singapore rebounded as
lenders gained after index heavyweight DBS Group Holdings DBSM.SI reported strong earnings.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was trading up 0.1 percent at 566.60 at 1009
GMT, while the S&P e-mini futures EScv1 were largely flat in late Asian trading hours.
Singapore shares .STI ended 1 percent higher, snapping four sessions of losses with DBS Group Holdings surging 5.3 percent after posting a 33 percent rise in fourth-quarter profit.
United Overseas Bank UOBH.SI and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation OCBC.SI rose around 1 percent each.
Philippine shares .PSI closed 0.3 percent lower as investors stayed on the sidelines ahead of the outcome of a
central bank meeting.
"I think what also added to the movement today is that investors were a bit cautious with the bank meeting today," said Lexter Azurin, a senior equity analyst at AB Capital.
After market hours on Thursday, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas kept its benchmark interest rate steady.
In a bid to ease investor concerns that a potential U.S. rate hike could spark capital outflows from the Philippines,
central bank Governor Nestor Espenilla said the country was well protected and the bank was prepared to provide liquidity to the financial system if necessary.
Index heavyweights SM Investments Corp SM.PS and Universal Robina Corp URC.PS dragged the index lower, falling 1 percent and 2.3 percent, respectively.
Vietnam shares .VNI closed down 1.7 percent marking their third losing session in four.
Vietnam posted a trade surplus of $181 million in January, contrary to a government estimate which predicted a $300 million deficit, the customs department said on Thursday.
