SE Asia Stocks-Gain as risk appetite for emerging markets returns
Southeast Asian stock markets ended higher on Friday, as uncertainty over incoming President Donald Trump's
policies weighed on the dollar and U.S. bond yields, boosting risk appetite for emerging markets.
The dollar's index against a basket of six major currencies .DXY regained some ground after shedding more than 2 percent overnight, while 10-year U.S. Treasuries yield US10YT=RR slumped to a one-month low.
"Trump's policies are likely to affect sentiment in Asian markets, but not local economies as they are quite resilient"
said Grace Aller, an analyst with AP Securities.
Trump's victory had sparked expectations of tax cuts, fiscal spending and deregulation, sending U.S. bond yields and dollar higher, while prompting capital outflows from emerging markets.
Malaysian stocks .KLSE gained 0.9 percent to an over two-month high, led by telecom and financial stocks as foreign
investors net bought shares worth 136.4 million ringgit. The index gained 2.1 percent on the week.
Top lenders CIMB Group Holdings Bhd CIMB.KL and Public Bank Bhd PUBM.KL hit over one-month highs while Axiata Group Bhd AXIA.KL jumped 6.0 percent to a two-month high.
Philippine shares .PSI ended 0.5 percent higher, led by industrial and real estate stocks. The index gained 6.0 percent
on the week, its biggest weekly gain since May 13, 2016.
"Philippines is expected to outperform its Asian peers, so foreign buying has been high," Aller said.
Conglomerate Aboitiz Equity Ventures Inc AEV.PS gained 3.2 percent while Ayala Land Inc ALI.PS added 1 percent.
Vietnam shares .VNI closed 0.6 percent up with Saigon Beer Alcohol Beverage Corp SAB.HM and Vietcombank VCB.HM lifting the index higher. The index rose 2.3 percent on the week.
Singapore .STI gained 2.8 percent on the week, Indonesia .JKSE added 1 percent and Thailand .SETI rose 1.9 percent.
