SE Asia Stocks-Most end higher; Malaysia posts 2-yr closing high

Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended higher on Monday, tracking U.S. equities that posted record
highs on Friday despite a tepid jobs report.
Broader Asian stocks rebounded after appearing subdued in early trade, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  gaining as much as 0.3 percent to its highest in over two years.  MKTS/GLOB     
"I think, generally, there still seems to be an underlying interest towards emerging markets/Asia, with regional equities
taking broad cues from U.S. equities," said Emmanuel Ng, a strategist with Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp in Singapore.
In Southeast Asia, Malaysian shares  .KLSE  rose for a second straight session to close at their highest in two years
on April exports data.  
April exports rose 20.6 percent from a year earlier, the fifth straight month of double-digit growth, and slightly missed
the 22.3 percent growth forecast in a Reuters poll.

Lenders Malayan Banking Bhd  MBBM.KL , Public Bank Bhd  PUBM.KL  and CIMB Group Bhd  CIMB.KL  gained in a range of 0.6 percent to 2.1 percent.
Philippine shares  .PSI  rose 1.2 percent to close above the 8,000 level for the first time since August 2016.  
Industrial and real estate stocks led the gains, with SM Investments Corp  SM.PS  rising 2.9 percent and SM Prime
Holdings  SMPH.PS  climbing 2.5 percent.
Vietnam shares  .VNI  gained 0.6 percent with blue chip Vinamilk  VNM.HM  climbing to its highest since September 2016.  
Meanwhile, Thai shares  .SETI  gave up early gains to end marginally lower, with energy stocks leading the decline. PTT Pcl  PTT.BK  fell 2.1 percent, while PTT Exploration and Production Pcl  PTTEP.BK  dropped 3.6 percent.
