    * Singapore gains 1.6 pct, most in Southeast Asia
    * Thailand ends higher for first time in nine sessions

    By Aaron Saldanha
March 12 - Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Monday, tracking Asian peers, after chances of the U.S. Federal
Reserve hiking interest rates four times this year dimmed following data that showed jobs jumped and wage growth slowed in
Inflation worries faded on Friday after U.S. data showed nonfarm payrolls jumped by 313,000 jobs last month, but the
annual growth in average hourly earnings slowed to 2.6 percent after a spike in January.

The slowdown in wage growth tempered speculation that the Federal Reserve would project four rate hikes - or dot plots - at its policy meeting next week, instead of the current three.
Asia shares ex-Japan climbed 1.3 percent, heading for a third straight session of gains.
"I think the latest data points are positive for markets. We are starting to see a move back to risky assets like equities," said Joel Ng, a research analyst at KGI Securities in Singapore.
"We are positive on equity markets... the earnings growth is positive, dividends are rising. All these are contributing to better prospects for equity markets in 2018."
In Southeast Asia, Singapore shares  .STI  rose 1.6 percent following a gain of 0.2 percent last week.
Conglomerate Jardine Matheson Holdings Ltd  JARD.SI  rose 3 percent, extending gains into a third session after results last week showed profit jumped more than 50 percent.  
"You can see that there is growth in most of its business segments like Jardine Pacific and Jardine Motors," said KGI
Securities' Ng.
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  rose 0.9 percent, with CIMB Group Holdings Bhd  CIMB.KL  contributing the most to the index's gain.
The country's banks will continue to perform well in 2018, Moody's said in a report on Monday.

Philippine shares  .PSI  climbed 1 percent after ending the previous week about 1 percent lower.
Ayala Corp  AC.PS  rose 1.2 percent after reporting a jump of more than 16 percent in net income attributable for 2017.
Thai shares  .SETI  closed higher for the first time in nine sessions as financials and energy stocks gained. PTT Pcl
 PTT.BK  rose 4.5 percent, while Siam Cement PCL  SCC.BK  gained 2.4 percent.
