SE Asia Stocks-Recover after Trump healthcare setback

Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended higher on Tuesday as investors pinned their hopes on U.S. President Donald Trump's stimulus plans after the healthcare policy setback.
While Trump's failure late last week to garner enough support for a plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act, stoked
concerns about his ability to enact stimulus policies, these began to recede overnight as investors looked with renewed, albeit tentative, optimism to the U.S. government's next policy steps.   
The president's policy moves will be in focus at least until the next Federal Reserve meeting, said Teerada Charnyingyong, an analyst with Phillip Securities Thailand.
Philippine shares  .PSI  ended 1.2 percent higher in their biggest single-day percentage rise since March 13, helped by
gains in industrial and financial stocks. SM Investments Corp  SM.PS  gained 3.26 percent, while Ayala Corp  AC.PS  rose 1.9 percent.
Investors are looking at the more attractive emerging markets such as the Philippines, said Rachelle Cruz, a research
analyst with AP Securities, adding that: "Last year we saw foreign investors shifting towards the United States when Trump won elections but we are calling it a reality check."
The peso remains competitive and is likely to be supported by a continued flow of remittances from overseas and the health of domestic business process outsourcing, the central bank governor said on Tuesday.  

"The strengthening of the peso will be good for the equity markets since the central bank is not in a hurry to increase
policy rate because the peso is currently stabilising," said Cruz.
Singapore shares  .STI  gained 1 percent, supported by financials and industrials with in-flight food caterer SATS Ltd
 SATS.SI  and Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd  STEG.SI  rising 2.3 percent and 1.9 percent, respectively.
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  ended 0.54 percent higher, helped by gains in consumer discretionary and telecom stocks. Genting Bhd  GENT.KL  rose 2.6 percent, while Axiata Group Bhd  AXIA.KL  added 1.4 percent.
Telecoms and industrials led the Thai stock index  .SETI  rise 0.4 percent.
Bucking the trend, Vietnam  .VNI  fell 0.6 percent, hurt by losses in consumer staples and financials.
Indonesia was closed for a holiday.     
  Market                    Current     previous close   Pct Move

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
