SE Asia Stocks-Largely down; Philippines drops on profit-taking
Philippine stocks fell for a second straight session on Thursday, led by telecom and financials as traders took profits, while most other Southeast Asian markets ended marginally lower, with Singapore easing from a fourteen-month high.
Philippine shares .PSI closed 0.8 percent lower with telecom operator PLDT Inc TEL.PS the top loser, slipping 4.2
percent while Globe Telecom GLO.PS shed 2.4 percent.
The market fell on profit-booking in stocks which saw a steep rise in prices in the last few sessions, said Ralph
Bodollo, an equity research analyst with Manila-based RCBC Securities.
The Singapore index .STI fell from a fourteen-month peak, ending 0.3 percent lower as some of the early gains in
financials were offset by losses in industrial stocks.
Yangzijiang Shipbuilding Holdings YAZG.SI lost 1.78 percent while Jardine Matheson Holdings JARD.SI was down 1.5
Jakarta .JKSE also shed early gains to finish the session lower, hurt mainly by consumer stocks. Shares of tobacco maker

percent higher and AMMB Holdings Bhd AMMB.KL up 0.45 percent.
