SE Asia Stocks-Stimulus prospects buoy markets; Vietnam up 2.5 pct

Southeast Asian stocks rallied on Wednesday in line with Asian peers as prospects of solid U.S. growth and further monetary stimulus in major markets whetted investor risk appetite, with the Vietnam index hitting its highest in more than 8 years.
"There is quite a bit of optimism about policy stimulus in the pipeline. They are looking at BOJ (Bank of Japan) prepping
to do more. They are expecting the BOE (Bank of England) to do something tomorrow," said Vishnu Varathan, a senior economist
with Mizuho Corporate Bank in Singapore.
"So, there is an entire lineup of monetary and fiscal policy stimulus."
Markets are simmering with speculation that the BOJ will cut its inflation forecasts and expand its already massive stimulus
programme at a July 28-29 rate review, as a hit to exports from a strong yen and weak consumption has added to downward pressure
on the economy and prices.  
Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said on Tuesday that a hit to Britain's economy from the Brexit referendum could prompt
the Bank to act, hinting again that more stimulus is on the way.

The BOE is due to announce whether it has cut rates or taken other action on Thursday.
Robust jobs data from the U.S. last week has also bolstered views that the U.S. economy is on a sound footing despite a slow
start to the year.  
Vietnam  .VNI  climbed 2.5 percent to its highest since Feb. 2008, with sentiment boosted after state oil group PetroVietnam
raised the country's 2016 crude oil output target to about 17 million tonnes, higher than previously expected.  
Philippine shares  .PSI  extended gains for a fourth straight session to close at a more-than 1-year high following a positive ruling by an international arbitration court over its claims in the South China Sea.  
Indonesia  .JKSE  also ended at a more than 1-year high, driven by telecom and consumer stocks.
Malaysia  .KLSE  closed at more than 1-month high after its central bank surprised markets by cutting the key interest rate for the first time in seven years in a bid to keep the country on a "steady growth path".  
Asian shares rose, with the MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  climbing as much as 0.4 percent.

By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
