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.*:nL3N1OC2LK

Financials and materials pushed the index up, with Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Foreign Trade of Viet Nam  VCB.HM   closing 5.6 percent higher.
