SE Asia Stocks-Most end down; Philippines hits 3-wk closing high

Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended down on Monday in the absence of catalysts, with the Chinese and
U.S. markets closed for holidays.

Philippine shares  .PSI , however, eked out a 0.2 percent gain to close at a near three-week high.

Investors remained on the sidelines in Southeast Asia as they await China's factory activity data due later in the week,
said Victor Felix, an equity analyst with Manila-based AB Capital Securities.

Factory activity in China is expected to have grown at its slowest pace in eight months, a Reuters poll showed, as previous stimulus fades and policymakers focus on tackling rising debt - a sign the cooldown in manufacturing will persist through 2017.
Earlier in the day, North Korea fired at least one short-range ballistic missile that landed in the sea off its
east coast, but did little to jar investor sentiment.

Asian stocks excluding Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  were down about 0.2 percent after rising earlier in the session following gains on Wall Street, which hovered around record highs on Friday.
Malaysia  .KLSE  ended 0.4 percent lower, dragged by chemical producer Petronas Chemicals Group  PCGB.KL  falling as much as 2 percent.
Singapore shares  .STI  dropped 0.2 percent, as losses in consumer goods stocks such as Wilmar International Ltd  WLIL.SI   and Thai Beverage Pcl  TBEV.SI  wiped out gains in index heavyweights DBS Group Holdings  DBSM.SI  and Hongkong Land Holdings Ltd  HKLD.SI .
The Jakarta SE Composite  .JKSE  index was pulled slightly under by telecommunication giant PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk  TLKM.JK  dipping as much as 2.5 percent.         
Philippine shares closed at their highest since May 9, driven by real estate stocks. SM Prime Holdings  SMPH.PS  hit a
record high, while Ayala Land  ALI.PS  climbed to its highest in more than nine months.
Selective buying of property stocks lifted the index, said Jeffrey Lucero, an equity research analyst with RCBC Securities, adding: "hopefully, we will still see some signs of foreign buying into this week."
Thai stocks  .SETI  lost about 0.1 percent, while Vietnam  .VNI  ended up 0.4 percent, continuing to hover around
nine-year highs, led by gains in energy stocks.

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
