SE Asia Stocks-Banks help Singapore post highest close in 21 months

Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended higher on Tuesday, with Singapore  .STI  posting its highest
close since July 2015 as banking stocks rose on the back of better-than-expected results.
Financials led the gains after DBS Group  DBSM.SI , the city-state's biggest lender, posted quarterly profit above
market expectations.
Last week, smaller peer United Overseas Bank  UOBH.SI  had reported strong quarterly profit on the back of higher net
interest income and trading income.  
DBS Group and United Overseas Bank rose 2.6 percent and 4.6 percent, respectively.
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  closed at their highest in nearly two years. Financial and consumer stocks led the gains, with
CIMB Group Holdings Bhd  CIMB.KL , the country's second largest bank by assets, finishing 2.4 percent higher.
Philippine shares  .PSI  ended 0.6 percent higher, underpinned by gains in industrial and real estate stocks.
Property developer SM Prime Holdings  SMPH.PS  was among the top performers, rising 3 percent.
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  reversed early gains to end the session marginally lower. Indonesia's annual inflation rate rose in April to the highest in 13 months, which was more than expected in a Reuters poll.  

Broader Asian markets were stronger after a long holiday weekend, with investors making bullish bets as an overnight
rally on Wall Street and easing geo-political concerns over North Korea boosted sentiment.  
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  rose to its highest since June 2015.  
Tensions over the Korean peninsula eased slightly after U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday he would be honoured to meet North Korea's supreme leader Kim Jong Un under the right circumstances. 
Vietnam stock market  .VNI  was closed for a holiday.
