SE Asia Stocks-Thai consumer, hotel shares up; Philippine cautious on inflation

Thai shares rose on Thursday as optimism around the domestic economy gave more boost to consumer and hotelier shares while Philippine stocks were range-bound amid expectations of a possible interest rate hike after higher  inflation in May.
 Most Southeast Asian stock markets recouped early losses and  closed higher as the European Central Bank is expected to ease monetary policy later on Thursday to support a fragile economic recovery.
The SET index   closed up 0.26 percent at 1,453.16, falling at one point to 1,444.98. Gains were led by shares of Big C Supercenter    and Minor International .
Shares of ethanol producer Thai Agro Energy  more than doubled on their debut as investors built an exposure into  alternative energy business. The stock closed at 5.6 baht versus the initial public offering price of 2.0 baht.
 The military government's economic policy to revive domestic consumption and investment underpinned market sentiment. The index had risen almost 12 percent so far this year, Asia's fifth best, according to Thomson Reuters data.
 The Philippine main index  ended a tad higher.

Philippine inflation quickened in May to a two-and-a-half year high on costlier food and utilities, prompting expectations the central bank could raise interest rates.
"While hawkish talk would persist, we now think policymakers would prefer rate adjustments in the fourth quarter," said a  Citi broker report.
