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.
