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.
