SE Asia Stocks-End higher on Trump relief; Malaysia gains over 1 pct
Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Thursday, tracking Asian shares and Wall Street overnight, as investors took heart from U.S. President Donald Trump's pledge to invest heavily in infrastructure, cut corporate taxes and ease regulations.
While Trump gave few new details on his tax or spending plans, investors were encouraged by what they saw as a measured
tone in his first speech to Congress as he tries to push his growth agenda through a Congress reluctant to widen the
government's budget deficit.
On Wall Street, the Dow .DJI blasted through the 21,000 mark for the first time, and the three main stock indexes surged
more than 1.3 percent to close at record highs.
"He Trump did not touch on details but at least he covered all the points that markets wanted to hear; you know, his aim to
cut tax, to invest up to 1 trillion dollars in infrastructure," said Rakpong Chaisuparakul, strategist at KGI Securities (Thailand).
"I think this sent a positive message to the global equity markets that the U.S. economy has an upside this year."
Singapore shares .STI rose 0.4 percent, helped by industrials and financials.
Jardine Matheson Holdings Ltd JARD.SI rose 2.3 percent to its highest close since March 9, 2015, while DBS Group DBSM.SI
added 1.1 percent.
Philippine shares .PSI closed 0.9 percent higher, with financials and industrials leading the gains.
Ayala Corp AC.PS and JG Summit JGS.PS were the top two performers.
Malaysian shares .KLSE climbed 1.1 percent to their highest close since April 22, 2016, led by financials.
Malayan Banking Bhd MBBM.KL rose 1.5 percent, while CIMB Group Holdings Bhd CIMB.KL climbed 2.2 percent to its highest close since August 2015.
Malaysia's central bank held its key interest rate at 3.00 percent as expected, on optimism that the economy is recovering
after a year of tepid growth.
"I think the decision to maintain the OPR is largely within expectation of ours as well as the general market. The strong
gains that we are seeing in the local market today is probably due to yesterday's good performance in the American markets,"
said Lim Sei Wai, an analyst at AmResearch Sdn. Bhd.
Indonesia .JKSE rose as much as 1.3 percent to a three-month high before closing 0.8 percent higher, led by consumer discretionary and energy stocks.
