Gainers in the region included Singapore's rig builder Keppel Corporation Ltd , Indonesia's Bank Central Asia  and Thailand's retailer Big C Supercenter, among companies reporting strong April-June earnings.
 Indonesia saw foreign inflows for a third straight day, adding a net 368.8 billion rupiah ($31.89 million), after Jakarta Governor Joko "Jokowi" Widodo was earlier this week declared the winner of the presidential election.
