SE Asia Stocks-Singapore falls on weak economic data

Most Southeast Asian stock markets finished higher on Monday except Singapore, which posted losses after the city-state's headline consumer price index fell in June on a year-on-year basis, down for the 20th consecutive month.
The all-items consumer price index (CPI) in June fell 0.7 percent from a year earlier, after dropping 1.6 percent in May.
The median forecast in a Reuters survey was for a decline of 1.1 percent in June.  
Singapore's economic growth remains sluggish, and its performance in the second half of this year will not be too
different from the first half, Ravi Menon, managing director, Monetary Authority of Singapore, said at a news conference on
Singapore's Straits Times Index  .STI  fell 0.5 percent, dragged down by consumer goods and consumer services stocks.
Taxi and car rental group Comfortdelgro Corp  CMDG.SI  and Capitaland Mall Trust  CMLT.SI  were among the biggest losers on
the index.
Meanwhile, other Southeast Asian markets posted meagre gains, ahead of a two-day U.S. Federal Reserve meeting starting
on Tuesday in which the Fed is expected to hold interest rates.  
According to a Reuters poll, the U.S. Federal Reserve will wait until the fourth quarter before raising the interest rates,
likely in December after the presidential election.
The Bank of Japan is expected to ease policy later this month, according to a majority of economists polled by Reuters,
who said a combination of measures would be used in another attempt to boost anaemic inflation.  

Philippine shares  .PSI  closed up 0.3 percent, led by financials and consumer cyclicals.  
Metropolitan Bank and Trust Co  MBT.PS  and Bank of the Philippine Islands  BPI.PS  gained 1.1 percent and 1.7 percent,
Stocks rose more than 1 percent earlier during the session as investors looked forward to President Rodrigo Duterte's first
public address since his appointment.
Duterte, who became the 16th president of the Philippines on May 30, vowed to push for several economic reforms to support
the economy, including easing tax rules, streamlining investment applications, and relaxing the secrecy law on bank deposits.
Malaysian stocks  .KLSE  gained 0.7 percent, driven by consumer cyclicals and financial stocks.
Malayan Banking Bhd  MBBM.KL  and Hong Leong Bank Bhd  HLBB.KL  were 0.9 percent and 1.5 percent higher, respectively.

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber
