SE Asia Stocks-Higher on China growth data; investors shrug off France attack

Most Southeast Asian stock markets closed higher on Friday, in line with Asian peers, as reassuring
Chinese growth data overtook negative sentiment after an attacker in the south of France killed at least 84 people.
A gunman at the wheel of a heavy truck ploughed into crowds celebrating Bastille Day in the French city of Nice, killing at
least 84 people and injuring scores more in what President Francois Hollande called a "terrorist" act.

World stocks  .MIWD00000PUS  were at an eight-month high on Friday although Europe ended an otherwise strong week subdued
after the attack.  
China's economy climbed 6.7 percent in the second quarter, marginally better than the expected 6.6 percent, which would
have been the weakest since the global financial crisis.
"The fact that money supply and loans are also up suggests that China's pro-stimulus position should not be derailed, which
will be quite supportive of wider Asia," said Vishnu Varathan, a senior economist with Mizuho Corporate Bank in Singapore.    
Philippine stocks  .PSI  led the gainers in the region, up nearly 1 percent on the day, driven by telecom and consumer
stocks. It gained 3.3 percent on the week.
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  were up 0.5 percent, driven by telecom and financials, after the country's trade surplus grew
more than expected to $900 million in June.
The index was up 2.8 percent on the week.
Indosat  ISAT.JK  and Bank Central Asia  BBCA.JK  finished 2.3 percent and 1 percent higher, respectively.
Singapore  .STI  and Thailand  .SETI  closed higher; while Malaysia  .KLSE  rose almost 1 percent.  
Vietnam  .VNI  bucked the trend to end down, dragged down by consumer non-cyclicals and energy shares.
Earlier, Asian shares extended gains, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  
rising 0.4 percent.
  Market                Current  Previous Close  Pct Move
