SE Asia Stocks-S'pore posts 2-yr closing high; Global Logistic Properties surges

Singapore shares closed at their highest level in nearly two years on Friday, propped by warehouse operator Global Logistic Properties  GLPL.SI  and as investors heaved a sigh of relief after quarterly economic growth data
showed the city-state narrowly dodged a recession.
Global Logistic Properties, Asia's No. 1 warehouse operator, surged as much as 23 percent to a record high after it agreed to be acquired by a Chinese private equity consortium backed by senior GLP executives for roughly S$16 billion ($11.65 billion).
Singapore's GDP expanded 0.4 percent in the April-June period from the previous quarter on an annualised and seasonally adjusted basis, helped by solid global demand for its tech products, but was lower than a median forecast of 1.1 percent in a Reuters poll.  
Singapore shares  .STI  closed 1.6 percent higher, posting their third straight weekly gain.
Among other Southeast Asian stock markets, the Philippines  .PSI  ended 0.6 percent lower, dragged down by property and financial stocks. Property developer SM Prime Holdings  SMPH.PS  fell 1.8 percent, while Ayala Corp  AC.PS  and Metropolitan Bank and Trust Co  MBT.PS  declined 2 percent and 2.4 percent, respectively.
The Philippine stock index nearly hit the 8,000 resistance level in the previous session, so investors may be just trying
to lock in some profits, said Charles Ang, an analyst with Manila-based COL Financial.
Philippine shares closed the week marginally lower after rising for two consecutive weeks.
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  came off early falls to end the session flat. Unilever Indonesia  UNVR.JK , which fell as much as 1.7 percent, rose in last-minute buying to finish 0.2 percent higher.
Thai shares  .SETI  closed the week higher after two straight falls, while Vietnam  .VNI  ended 0.2 percent higher.   
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  closed slightly higher on Friday, but posted their fourth straight weekly decline. Genting Bhd
GENT.KL  gained 3.4 percent, while Petronas Chemicals Group  PCGB.KL  and DiGi.Com  DSOM.KL  fell 1.4 percent and 1.5   percent, respectively.
Meanwhile, investors are awaiting a host of U.S. economic indicators, including core inflation, retail sales and
industrial production, for June later in the session for more insight into how the Federal Reserve might proceed with monetary policy tightening this year.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
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
