SE Asia Stocks-Singapore hits 14-mth high; Philippines up for fifth session

Singapore shares ended higher in cautious trade on Monday after hitting their highest in fourteen months, while three out of the five other Southeast Asian markets ended lower, in line with broader Asia.
Singapore's FTSE Straits Times Index  .STI  closed up 0.6 percent after hitting its highest since November 2015 and rising for a fifth straight session.
Financial and industrial stocks led the gains, boosted by Friday's data showing a rebound in U.S. wages and suggesting
sustained labour market momentum.
As most of Singapore's exports go to the United States, strong U.S. jobs data is positive for the city-state, said Mikey
Macainag, an analyst with Sunsecurities Inc.
DBS Group Holdings  DBSM.SI  gained 1 percent, while casino operator Genting Singapore Plc  GENS.SI  gained 2.7 percent.  
Philippine shares  .PSI  also extended gains for a fifth straight session, closing 0.4 percent higher, led by gains in
telecom shares, with telecom services provider PLDT Inc  TEL.PS  gaining 4.2 percent.
Foreign buying worth about 249 million pesos ($5.02 million) helped the Philippine market, said Manny Cruz, an analyst with Manila-based Asiasec Equities Inc.     
On the other end of the spectrum, Indonesian stocks  .JKSE , Thailand stocks  .SETI  and Malaysian stocks  .KLSE  fell about half a percent, in line with Asian peers.
Asian stocks gave up early gains as investor caution grew before a news conference by U.S. President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday, where his views on global trade and China will be carefully scrutinised for future policy implications.
MSCI's ex-Japan Asia-Pacific shares index  .MIAPJ0000PUS  was flat on the day, having risen as much as 0.5 percent after posting a loss in the previous session.
