SE Asia Stocks -Plantation stocks lift Malaysia, Indonesia

Shares in Malaysia and Indonesia eked out gains on Tuesday as stronger palm oil prices lifted plantation stocks while losses in Thailand's top telecoms
due to a suspension of an auction of fourth-generation mobile licences weighed on the broader market.

Malaysian palm oil futures stretched gains into a fourth session, lifted by firm crude oil prices and concerns that the onset of dry weather could curb palm yields.
Bangkok's SET index   finished a tad lower, weighed by losses in shares of top mobile phone operator Advanced Info Service    and no. 2 operator Total Access Communication .
Thailand's telecommunications regulator said that it has suspended temporarily an auction of 4G mobile licences as more time is needed to work out the details of the process, as well as to ensure transparency.
The Philippine main index   fell for a third session, ending down 0.8 percent at its lowest level since May 30, as large caps, including Ayala Land    and Philippine Long Distance Telephone , fell amid foreign outflows.

The Philippine bourse said foreign investors sold shares worth a net 314.6 million pesos ($7.17 million).
