SE Asia Stocks- Thai index posts near 5-month closing low

Thai stocks hit a near five-month closing low on Tuesday, fretting over the outlook for interest rate after consumer prices fell further in May, while Singapore shares dropped for a fifth session ahead of the release of manufacturing output data due after market hours.
Bangkok's SET index   was down 1.3 percent at 1,476.87, the lowest close since Jan. 6. Trading volume was relatively thin at 83 percent of the full-day average.
The country's annual consumer price index declined for a fifth straight month in May due to lower energy prices, echoing expectations of a likely interest rate cut by the Bank of Thailand in coming meetings, brokers said.
Singapore's Straits Times Index   was down 1.5 percent at 3,340.75, the lowest close since Jan. 20. Among top losers, Noble Group   was down 6.3 percent and Jardine
Cycle & Carriage   lost 3.7 percent.
The selling came ahead of the release of factory output data for May after manufacturing activity touched the lowest in more than two years in April.
The Philippine stock index  retreated 1.5 percent, erasing the 1.2 percent gain in the previous session, with twenty eight out of the 30 large caps measured by the index falling.
Indexes of Malaysia   and Vietnam   both closed lower amid weakness in Asia, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  down about 1 percent as a stronger greenback pressured commodity prices.  
Stock exchange data showed foreign investors sold Malaysian shares worth a net 265 million ringgit ($71.68 million) and offloaded Philippine stocks worth a net 2.12 billion peso ($3.40 million).
The Indonesian stock market  was closed for a holiday.
