SE Asia Stocks-Philippines extends losses; Thailand posts best mth in 1-1/2 yrs

* Philippines sheds 1.6 pct, retreating further from record
* Asian shares ex-Japan on course for best month since March 2016
* Vietnam marks fifth consecutive monthly gain
    By Karthika Suresh Namboothiri
Jan 31 (Reuters) - Philippine shares extended losses to a second session on Wednesday, pulling further away from an
all-time high hit earlier this week, while Thailand ended steady, marking its best month in 1-1/2 years.
Asian stocks steadied after sliding on rising global bond yields, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares
outside Japan  on course for a 6.6 percent monthly gain, its biggest since March 2016.
However, the U.S. Federal Reserve's monetary policy statement due later in the day kept investors on guard.
"Bond yields in the U.S. are rising, so there is a shift in funds from emerging markets back to the U.S," said Lexter Azurin from AB Capital Securities.
Foreign Institutional Investor (FII) net outflows for Philippines was $39.4 million on Tuesday, while Indonesia
recorded $88.9 million net outflows. Thailand's net outflows stood at $81 million in the previous session.  
Philippine shares  .PSI  ended 1.6 percent lower, after the previous session's 1.6 percent drop, as industrials fell, with
SM Investment Corp  SM.PS  shedding 6 percent.
The index, however, climbed 2.4 percent in January, its second straight monthly gain.  
Thai shares  .SETI  ended flat, but rose 4.2 percent this month, its best since July 2016.
Energy stocks PTT Pcl  PTT.BK  and PTT Exploration and Production PCL  PTTEP.BK  gained 1.6 percent each after Royal Dutch Shell  RDSa.L  said it would sell its Bongkot gas field stake to PTT Exploration & Production for $750 million before tax.  
Meanwhile, data showed Thai private consumption contracted in December from the previous month while investment rose slightly, implying that a recovery in Southeast Asia's second-largest economy is still patchy.  

Indonesian shares  .JKSE  firmed 0.5 percent, bringing the monthly gain to 3.9 percent after December's 6.8 percent surge.
Lender PT Bank Pan Indonesia  PNBN.JK  climbed to a record close, while Telekom Indonesia  TLKM.JK  finished 2.3 percent higher.
The index of the country's 45 most liquid stocks ended 0.2 percent higher.  
Singapore shares  .STI  closed 0.4 percent lower, with heavyweight Keppel Corp  KPLM.SI  shedding 1.1 percent.
The index, however, gained 3.9 percent this month after a 0.9 percent decline in December.
Vietnam shares  .VNI  finished flat, marking a fifth consecutive monthly gain, with Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock
 GAS.HM  rising to a three-year closing high.
Malaysia was closed for a public holiday.
 Market               Current      Previous close      Pct Move
 Singapore          3533.99           3548.74              -0.42
 Bangkok            1826.86           1826.61               0.01
 Manila               8764.01           8910.48              -1.64

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

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
