SE Asia Stocks-Rise on higher oil; Vietnam, Singapore lead

Most Southeast Asian stocks rose on Tuesday, led by energy stocks as global oil prices climbed for a second day to a near 6-month high, with Vietnam up 1.5 percent to hit its highest since July.
Oil traded at around $49 a barrel supported by supply outages in Nigeria, Canada and other producers that are eroding
a persistent glut.   
Vietnam  .VNI  closed at a more than nine-month high, riding on energy stocks. The smallest of the six main Southeast Asian markets has gained 6.3 percent this year as of Monday's close.
"Short-term movements are hard to predict and volatility is always there but I expect the market to remain resilient
throughout the rest of 2016," said Dang Van Phap, research manager at Viet Capital Securities.
PetroVietnam Gas  GAS.HM  finished 6.3 percent higher, while PetroVietnam Well & Drilling Services Corp  PVD.HM  was up 6.7 percent.  
Singapore shares  .STI  closed at a 2-week high, with oil-rig firm Keppel Corp  KPLM.SI  up 4.5 percent and offshore
engineering firm Sembcorp Marine  SCMN.SI  closing nearly 8 percent higher.
Malaysia rose about 1 percent ahead of a central bank decision on interest rates on Thursday. SapuraKencana Petroleum  SKPE.KL  was up 1.9 percent.  
Bank Negara Malaysia will likely hold its overnight policy rate  MYINTR=ECI  at 3.25 percent on expectations economic growth will improve in the coming quarters, a Reuters poll showed.  
Indonesia  .JKSE  dipped slightly as financials took a hit, with the Jakarta Finance Index  .JKFINA  closing more than 1 percent lower, dragged down by the country's three largest state-controlled banks.
"Given the management guidance, we think the banking sector still poses downside risks, particularly from rising NPL
(non-performing loans) and noise on lending rate intervention," Trimegah Securities said in a note.
Thai stocks were 0.6 percent higher, led by telecomm services and energy shares.
Broader Asian shares rose, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  up 0.9
percent, extending its recovery from a two-month low set on Friday.
