SE Asia Stocks-Philippines hits record high; Vietnam extends gains
Philippine shares .PSI jumped the most in a year on Tuesday, hitting a record high on foreign buying, while Vietnam .VNI climbed for a second straight session to a fresh ten-year high.
Asian shares ex-Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS were nearly flat in afternoon trade, after paring gains and pulling away from the cusp of a record high.
"Asian markets are driven by the return of Japanese investors from their holiday break. So, we can see buying from
those sources," said Manny Cruz, an analyst at Asiasec Equities Inc in Manila.
Philippine shares closed 2 percent up at a record high of 8,923.72, with foreign investors net buying equities worth 1.42 billion pesos ($28.22 million).
Financials and industrial stocks accounted for more than half of the gains, with SM Prime Holdings Inc SMPH.PS and International Container Terminal Services Inc ICT.PS closing up 3.4 percent and 2.5 percent, respectively.
"Buying from foreign funds is heightened by the fact that recently President Rodrigo Duterte signed a tax reform program that would spur infrastructure developments in the country," Cruz added. urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL3N1OC2LK
Vietnam shares rose 1 percent in their eleventh gaining session out of twelve, marking their highest close since Nov.

Singapore .STI closed up 0.4 percent, after touching a 32-month high during the day. Financials and industrial stocks
were among the top gainers, with United Overseas Bank Ltd UOBH.SI ending 2 percent higher.
