SE Asia Stocks-End higher on bargain-hunting; Philippines down

Most southeast Asian markets closed higher on Tuesday, in line with Asian stocks, as investors picked up beaten down shares that had slumped over the last two sessions after Britain's decision last week to leave the European Union.
Global markets rose for the first time in three days after the Brexit vote hammered U.S. and European bank stocks, and
dragged the British pound to a 31-year low.  
While one group of investors viewed the Brexit sell-off as an opportunity to come in, those that are risk-averse due to the
"potential negative impact on asset values" stayed away, said Jose Vistan, an analyst with Manila-based AB Capital Securities.
Singapore shares  .STI  rose nearly 1 percent, their first gain in three sessions, helped by telecom stocks.
Singapore Telecommunications Ltd  STEL.SI , the city-state's largest telecom company by market capitalisation, rose 2.6
percent, while StarHub Ltd  STAR.SI  gained 4.5 percent.  
"Historically, telcos have benefited from low rates/monetary easing," Citi said in a note, referring to the U.S. Fed's decision to hold back on further rate increases and the readiness of a number of central banks to provide liquidity.
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  were up nearly 1 percent, led by consumer cyclicals and healthcare stocks such as Astra International Tbk PT  ASII.JK  and Kalbe Farma Tbk PT  KLBF.JK .
Sentiment was also buoyed after Indonesia's parliament approved an amnesty bill that would allow low payment rates for taxpayers who declared untaxed wealth.  
"It (tax amnesty) is directly positive for construction and indirectly positive for property, banks, along with the domestic economy," Jakarta-based Trimegah Securities said in a note.
Vietnam closed marginally higher, with Vinamilk  VNM.HM ,the country's biggest firm by market value, notching up its biggest percentage gain since November, after the company's board decided to remove its 49 percent foreign ownership cap.
Bucking the trend, Philippine shares  .PSI  closed 0.6 percent lower, dragged down by consumer non-cyclicals. JG Summit Holdings Inc  JGS.PS  fell 1.1 percent.
The Philippine market "is being influenced by external developments and the volatility abroad is affecting sentiment for risk assets," Vistan said, adding that volatility in currency markets further dampened sentiment.
Earlier, MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  was up 0.5 percent.

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
