SE Asia Stocks-Philippines falls over 1 pct; Vietnam hits fresh 10-year closing high
* Philippines falls 2 pct intraday, biggest since March 2017
* Malaysia declines for third consecutive session
* Vietnam up for 13th session in 14
By Sandhya Sampath
Jan 11 (Reuters) - Philippine shares dropped over 1 percent on Thursday, underperforming other Southeast Asian stock
markets, while Vietnam extended gains to a fresh 10-year closing high.
The Philippine Stock Exchange PSEI Index .PSI declined as much as 2 percent, its biggest since March 2017, before closing 1.2 percent lower.
"The weakness on Wall Street could have been a catalyst for a profit-taking from the global rally seen across most regions," said Fio De Jesus, an equity research analyst with RCBC Securities in Manila.
The three major U.S. stock indexes ended lower overnight after a choppy trading session as investors worried that China would slow U.S. government bond purchases and that U.S. President Donald Trump would end a key trade agreement.
Asian shares ex-Japan also dropped due to concerns about rising U.S. protectionism, while bonds rebounded
after China's regulator said a report about Beijing slowing or halting of its U.S. bond buying was possibly wrong.
Losses were largely broad-based in the Philippines, with index heavyweight PLDT Inc TEL.PS ending 3.5 percent lower and real estate company Ayala Land ALI.PS closing down 2.9 percent.
"A lot of the proxy stocks that have big weighting on the index are seeing some profit-taking, although the fundamentals haven't really changed," De Jesus said.
Malaysian shares .KLSE declined for a third straight session, dragged down by telecom and consumer stocks, even after data showed industrial production rose 5 percent in November from a year earlier.
Axiata Group Bhd AXIA.KL fell 0.9 percent, while Genting Bhd GENT.KL ended down 2.3 percent.
Vietnam shares .VNI rose for a fourth straight session, buoyed by financial and energy stocks. Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Foreign Trade of Viet Nam VCB.HM climbed 1.4 percent.
The index has gained in 13 sessions out of 14.
Thai shares .SETI reversed their course and ended 0.4 percent higher, on the back of gains in energy stocks.
Indonesia .JKSE edged up with financials accounting for more than half of the gains. Bank Central Asia Tbk PT BBCA.JK closed 1.1 percent higher.
An index of the country's 45 most liquid stocks ose 0.3 percent.
