SE Asia Stocks - Most fall on outflows, Fed rate outlook; Thai index rebounds  

Thai stocks recouped early  losses in thin trade on Wednesday as retail investors bought shares, while other Southeast Asian stock markets fell as expectations about an early interest rate hike in the United States unnerved investors in Asia.  
The Thai SET index   ended the day up 0.2 percent  after falling at one point to a near two-week low.

Retail investors bought shares worth a net 2.1 billion baht  ($62 million), countering selling led by foreign investors and domestic institutions.

Asphalt maker Tipco Asphalt Pcl   rose 1.8 percent as the government's infrastructure spending plan, including a $12 billion railway project approved by the cabinet on Tuesday, lifted the outlook of the construction industry.

About 5.5 million shares changed hands, which was only 73 percent of the 30-day average. Brokers said the low market conviction also reflected caution ahead of manufacturing output data on Thursday.

Indexes in the Philippines  and Malaysia   both fell for a fifth straight day, with net foreign outflows worth a net 1.3 billion peso ($29 million) and 120 million ringgit ($33 million), respectively.
