SE Asia Stocks-Higher; investors track U.S. healthcare bill

Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Thursday, in line with Asia and Wall Street, with investors
closely watching the progress of a U.S. healthcare bill that could affect President Donald Trump's ability to deliver on
other campaign promises.  
Repealing and replacing Democratic former President Barack Obama's 2010 Affordable Care Act is a first major test of Trump's legislative ability and whether he can go ahead with his agenda, including cutting taxes and regulation to boosting infrastructure.  
Asian shares rose, with the MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  up as much as 0.4 percent, while U.S. equities rebounded on Wednesday after all three key indexes touched their lowest in about five weeks earlier in the session.   
"Since there is not much actionable news coming from Asia, I think the markets are just taking cues from U.S. equities...," said Victor Felix, an equity analyst with Manila-based AB Capital Securities.
In Southeast Asia, Indonesian shares  .JKSE  closed at a record high, helped by gains in financial stocks.  
Indonesia's central bank senior deputy governor said the rate of inflation in March was seen at below 0.2 percent month on month.  
Vietnam shares  .VNI  rose 0.9 percent, supported by consumer staples and financials.
Hoang Anh Gia Lai Agricultural Joint Stock Co  HNG.HM  ended 6.8 percent higher, while Sai Gon Thuong Tin Commercial Joint Stock Bank (Sacombank)  STB.HM  was up 6.1 percent.
Philippines  .PSI  closed 0.6 percent firmer, with industrials accounting for more than half the gains.
The Philippine central bank left its key overnight borrowing rate steady at 3.0 percent as expected, saying inflation should settle within its target for this year and next.   
Singapore  .STI  finished the session marginally higher.
Earlier in the day, data showed the city state's headline consumer price index in February rose the most in more than two years on the back of increased private road transport cost.
