SE Asia Stocks-Tepid on lack of catalyst; Vietnam hits over 9-yr closing high
Vietnam shares hit their highest close in more than nine years on Thursday with consumer staples leading the gains, while other Southeast Asian markets moved sideways in the absence of market-moving macroeconomic triggers.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific .MIAPJ0000PUS shares outside Japan fell 0.1 percent.
"Broadly I think it's more of a mixed sentiment between profit-taking and what kind of next upside catalyst do we have," said Taye Shim, head of research at Jakarta-based Mirae Asset Sekuritas.
Vietnam shares .VNI rose 0.5 percent to their highest close since February 2008 and have gained 8.9 percent so far
Seafood processor Nam Viet Corp ANV.HM rose 16.4 percent, while Vietnam Dairy Products JSC VNM.HM gained 1.6 percent.
Thai shares .SETI closed 0.3 percent higher, helped by gains in material and real estate stocks. CIMB Thai Bank Pcl
CIMBT.BK rose 4.4 percent, while Origin Property Pcl ORI.BK jumped 13.4 percent.
Philippine shares .PSI edged up with industrials and consumer discretionary stocks accounting for most of the gains.
Aboitiz Equity Ventures Inc AEV.PS gained 0.2 percent, while Jollibee Foods Corp JFC.PS rose 3.5 percent.
Singapore shares .STI fell 0.4 percent, hurt by losses in industrial and real estate stocks, with Jardine Cycle & Carriage JCYC.SI and CapitaLand Ltd CATL.SI shedding 1.1 percent and 1.4 percent, respectively. Both stocks were among the worst performers on the index.
Malaysian shares .KLSE edged lower as consumer discretionary financials lost ground. Resorts operator Genting
Malaysia Bhd GENM.KL fell 2.6 percent, while Malayan Banking Bhd MBBM.KL dropped 0.6 percent.
Indonesian shares .JKSE closed flat after hitting a record high in the previous session.
