SE Asia Stocks-Mostly down despite foreign inflows; Chinese PMI weighs  

Most Southeast Asian markets ended weaker on Monday, with Malaysia and Singapore closing at near one-week lows despite foreign inflows as disappointing Chinese manufacturing activity raised concerns over economic growth momentum in the world's second-largest economy.
 The Malaysian index  ended 0.5 percent down at its lowest close since April 29 led by financials, while Singapore  lost 0.3 percent led by property shares, also ending at its lowest since April 29.  
Activity in China's manufacturing sector contracted for a fourth consecutive month in April, a private survey showed on Monday, adding to questions about whether the world's second-largest economy is still losing momentum.  I
The Vietnamese market , which resumed trading after a holiday since April 29, also closed 2.3 percent at its lowest  level since April 21 as pessimistic investors offloaded stocks on lack of supportive news.  
Foreign investors, however, were on the buying side. Kuala Lumpur saw a net inflow of $17.39 million, Jakarta recorded $26.50 million, while Manila had $12.13 million.  
Bucking the trend, the Philippine index   ended 0.4 percent higher, led by a 3.2 percent gain in conglomerate SM investments Corp  after its property unit SM Prime Holdings Inc  posted a 11 percent gain in March quarter net income.  
Jakarta  ended just 0.1 percent up as Indonesia, Southeast Asia's largest economy, posted its slowest growth in more than four years.
After the market closed, Genting Singapore PLC  said its core earnings for the quarter ended March 31 soared 60 percent on the year as gaming income recorded robust gains.
The Thai market   was closed on Monday for a holiday.
