SE Asia Stocks-Soft as Brexit fears cloud sentiment

Most Southeast Asian stocks ended lower on Thursday as investors shrugged off the U.S. Fed's cautious
stance on interest rates and a steady monetary policy by the Bank of Japan, as fears of a British exit from the European
Union dominated markets.
A poll by Ipsos MORI on Thursday showed 53 percent of Britons would vote to leave the European Union in a referendum
on June 23, and a separate analysis by JPMorgan  JPM.N  researchers on Wednesday showed the "Leave" camp in the lead.
"Most likely, if the British referendum were to go for 'leave' the European Union, it would exacerbate the market
sentiments in flight to safety and the risk appetite would actually deteriorate," said Taye Shim, an analyst with Daewoo
"It might lead to meaningful outflow of funds out from ASEAN markets over to safer markets."
Concerns over the so-called Brexit have driven investors towards safe-haven assets such as German bunds and gold and out
of oil and stocks.  
Singapore  .STI  stocks fell 0.8 percent, led lower by oil and gas shares after oil prices hit their lowest in more than
three weeks on Thursday.
Keppel Corp Ltd  KPLM.SI  fell 1.9 percent, while Sembcorp Industries  SCIL.SI  lost 2.8 percent.
The Thailand index  .SET  closed down 1.7 percent, with telecom and energy stocks dragging the index down.
Advanced Info Service PCL  ADVANC.BK  fell 4 percent.
Vietnam ended marginally lower, led by energy stocks, with Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corp  GAS.HM  down 2.4 percent.
The Philippine index  .PSI  however closed 0.8 percent higher, led by shares of consumer cyclicals.  
SM Investments Corp  SM.PS  was up 1.1 percent.
"It might be a case of rotation of buying, probably lightening up on some countries and moving to the Philippines
because of our better fundamentals at the moment," said Jose Vistan, an analyst with Manila-based AB Capital Securities,
referring to the Philippine economy.
The Philippine economy posted its fastest annual growth in nearly three years in the first quarter, as strong domestic
demand and investments offset sluggish
Earlier on Thursday, the Bank of Japan refrained from offering additional monetary stimulus despite anaemic inflation
and weak global growth. Overnight, the U.S. Federal Reserve kept interest rates unchanged and signaled it still planned to raise
rates twice in 2016.

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
