 SE Asia Stocks-Most higher; China trade data lifts sentiment

* Thai shares hit record high
    * Vietnam extends gains, hits 10-yr high
    * Philippines posts sixth weekly gain
    By Sandhya Sampath
Jan 12 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended higher on Friday, led by Thailand, tracking gains in broader Asia as strong Chinese trade data and optimism ahead of the U.S. corporate earnings season buoyed sentiment.
Asian shares ex-Japan  rose 0.8 percent following two sessions of declines, after data showed China's exports rose 10.8 percent in 2017.    
Wall Street's three major stock indexes hit record highs overnight with earnings for S&P 500 companies expected to have increased by 11.8 percent in the recently-ended quarter, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. 

"We are looking at a bullish outlook globally, in terms of economic growth," said Jose L. Vistan, research head at
Manila-based AB Capital Securities.     
Thai shares  .SETI  closed 0.4 percent up, after hitting a record of 1,816.81, helped by gains in financials and utilities.

Siam Commercial Bank PCL  SCB.BK  rose 2.6 percent while Gulf Energy Development PCL  GULF.BK  surged 9.3 percent to a record.
The index ended the week 1 percent higher, its seventh straight weekly gain.
The Philippine index  .PSI  pared early gains to end flat as a rise in real estate stocks was offset by a fall in consumer
staples. It finished higher for a sixth straight week.
"Given the strong growth globally, the Philippines stands out because we are projected to be the fastest growing in
Southeast Asia, which is attracting a lot of attention from investors," Vistan added.
Singapore shares  .STI  snapped two sessions of losses and ended 0.2 percent higher as sentiment got a boost after data showed the city-state's on-year retail sales in November jumped the highest in nearly two years.  

Industrials and financials ended higher, with SATS Ltd  SATS.SI , the top performer on the index, adding 2.9 percent.
The benchmark index rose 0.9 percent on the week, marking its third straight weekly gain.
Vietnam  .VNI  settled 0.2 percent higher, led by real estate stocks. Vingroup Joint Stock Company  VIC.HM  rose 5.4  percent.
The index posted its fourth weekly gain, adding 3.7 percent.     Meanwhile, Indonesian shares  .JKSE  reversed course to end 0.3 percent lower, but finished the week marginally higher.      
 Market              Current        Previous close     Pct Move
 Singapore         3520.56               3512.68              0.22
 Bangkok           1810.19               1802.8                0.41
 Manila               8814.62               8813.25             0.02

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
