SE Asia Stocks-Battered after BOJ stimulus fails to appease investors
Southeast Asian stock markets ended lower on Friday, in line with other Asian markets that were battered after the Bank of Japan's monetary easing programme disappointed investors.

Singapore .STI shares dropped 1.7 percent to post its biggest percentage loss since June 24. The index was dragged

The index snapped four straight weekly gains to post a loss of 2.62 percent this week, but grew 0.98 percent on the month.
Indonesia .JKSE slid 1.6 percent after losing its early gains, with consumer non-cyclicals being the worst performer on

Indonesia's biggest cigarette maker by market value, PT Hanjaya Mandala Sampoerna Tbk HMSP.JK , slumped 9.7 percent.
Thai .SETI stocks were the biggest monthly gainers in the region, up 5.47 percent this month.
