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
Hanjaya Mandala Sampoerna Tbk PT  HMSP.JK  fell 1.3 percent.
Vietnam shares  .VNI  were flat, while Thai stocks  .SETI  reversed gains to end the session lower.  
Bucking the trend, Malaysian shares  .KLSE  rose for a third straight session and finished slightly higher after hitting

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