SE Asia Stocks-Most up; Malaysia gains in heavy trade


Most Southeast Asian markets climbed on Monday with Malaysia ending higher as trading resumed after the
stunning defeat of a coalition that ruled the country for over six decades, while Vietnam rose more than 2 percent led by real estate stocks.
    
Malaysia's newly elected administration, led by Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad, had promised to scrap toll fees,
reinstate fuel subsidies and raise minimum wages, and most importantly, to abolish the deeply unpopular goods and service tax within its first 100 days  
    
"The repeal of GST, while only marginally negative for the fiscal deficit, will be a boon for consumers, who have been upset that they bear the burden of poor fiscal management and came out to vote against the establishment," said Trinh Nguyen, senior economist at Natixis.
    
Consumer stocks gained, with Genting Bhd  and Nestle each ending over 4 percent higher, while the
index firmed up 0.2 percent in its heaviest day of trading since late November 2017.     
    
The biggest losers on the main board were AirAsia Group Bhd  AIRA.KL  and CIMB Group Holdings Bhd  CIMB.KL , down over 5 percent each. Air Asia Chief, Tony Fernandes, on Monday apologised for endorsing former Prime Minister Najib Razak in the election.  
    
Mahathir announced three top cabinet posts on Saturday, including Lim Guan Eng, a former banker and chartered
accountant, as finance minister.  
    
"This is expected to underscore market confidence given Lim, a trained accountant, has a track record boosting Penang's economy with investor-friendly policies," Mizuho Bank analysts said in a note.
    
In other markets, Indonesia   slipped 0.2 percent on worries over continued capital outflows from Southeast Asia's
biggest economy. Officials on Friday tried to calm investors concerned over a weak domestic currency.  

Vietnam stocks  rose 2.1 percent, their biggest intraday gain in one week. Real estate stocks buoyed the market,
with Vingroup Joint Stock Co  VIC.HM  ending 6.5 percent higher.
    
Philippines  was closed for a public holiday

ASEAN  ANALYSIS

This year in Thailand-what next?


AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber

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
