SE Asia Stocks -Thai shares at 2-week low after first MERS case


The Thai index hit a more than two-week low on Friday after the country's first case of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome  was reported, while most other stock markets in the region rose after the U.S. Federal Reserve adopted a cautious stance on interest rates.
    
The benchmark SET index    finished the day down 1.1 percent at 1,491.46, the lowest close since June 4. It dropped about 1 percent on the week and was among the underperformers in Southeast Asia.
    
Losses were led by a 7.3 percent drop in shares of hotelier Central Plaza Hotel   and a 5.5 percent decline in airport operator Airports of Thailand, a day after it was hit by a safety rating downgrade.  
   
 Shares of Bumrungrad Hospital  shed 6 percent after the hospital said it had received the country's first MERS case.  
    
Thailand's central bank cut its 2015 growth forecast and said exports and consumer prices will fall this year, showing the country still faces big obstacles to getting back on a solid growth track.
    
Stock indexes of Singapore   and Malaysia  posted modest gains on the day, trimming their weekly loss to 1.6 percent and 0.7 percent, respectively.
    
The Philippine index  , which closed virtually flat, posted a weekly gain of 1.3 percent, the region's best  performer. Indonesia   and Vietnam   notched up gains on the week of 1 percent and 0.3 percent, respectively.
    
Asian shares rose for a third consecutive day on Friday even as China stocks tumbled into correction territory, while the Federal Reserve's cautious stance towards lifting interest rates kept the dollar on the back foot.
