SE Asia Stocks-Higher on oil price gains; Indonesia dips after hitting record high

Southeast Asian stock markets, except Indonesia, closed higher on Monday in line with Asian peers, and
as energy stocks climbed on rising global crude oil prices.
Asian stocks  .MIAPJ0000PUS  were up 0.9 percent as of 1008 GMT following modest gains in U.S. shares on Friday. 
Oil prices rose on reports that an OPEC-led supply cut may not only be extended into next year but might also be deepened to tighten the market and prop up prices.  
"For one, there's a cue from the rally on the Dow Jones," said Manny Cruz, an analyst with Manila-based Asiasec Equities Inc. "Apart from that, crude climbed to over $51 a barrel, which boosted trading on energy producers."
In Southeast Asia, Vietnam  .VNI  closed 1.4 percent higher, in its best session in more than 9 years as financials and
energy stocks led gains.
Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam  BID.HM  closed at its highest since July 2016, while Vietnam National Petroleum Group  PLX.HM  hit at a record high.
Philippine  .PSI  stocks closed 0.5 percent higher, led by real estate and industrial stocks. Property developer Ayala Land
ALI.PS  closed up 1.9 percent, while International Container Terminal Services  ICT.PS  ended at its highest since August 2015.
Indonesia  .JKSE  fell from a record intraday high to close 0.7 percent lower, as consumer staples and financial stocks took a hit.
"Locals are profit-taking," said Harry Su, head of research at Jakarta-based Bahana Securities.
"I think they're still concerned about business performances in May, particularly as the political situation here is still
weighing on the overall sentiment."
Jakarta's Christian governor was sentenced to two years in jail for blasphemy earlier this month, sparking a slew of
protests across the city.  
Unilever Indonesia Tbk PT  UNVR.JK  closed at a more than  one-week low, while Bank Mandiri (Persero) Tbk PT  BMRI.JK   ended 2.9 pct lower.  
  Market               Current       previous     Pct Move
  Singapore         3213.57       3216.92        -0.10
  Bangkok           1557.43       1549.64         0.50
  Manila              7806.57       7767.62         0.50
  Jakarta              5749.445     5791.884      -0.73
