SE Asia Stocks-Thai shares outperform; others range-bound
Thailand stocks rebounded from early losses to end firmer on Thursday, led by top oil firm PTT Pcl and on buying from institutional investors, while other markets were range-bound as a cooling Chinese economy hit sentiment.
Thailand's SET index gained 1 percent, with PTT rising 2.9 percent, which traders attributed to a technical rebound.
"Portfolio managers continued buying shares for long-term equity funds (LTF) and retirement mutual funds (RMF)," said an equity trader in Bangkok.
Traders said a favourable tax treatment has made the funds popular among investors, with demand often active towards the end of the year.
Other Southeast Asian markets were range-bound as Chinese data showed below-forecast factory output and investment growth hit a near 13-year low, reinforcing signs that the world's second-biggest economy will see its weakest growth in almost 24 years this year.
Singapore's Straits Times Index closed up 0.7 percent, led by a 1.3 percent gain each in beaten down United Overseas Bank Ltd and DBS Group Holdings Ltd.
Indonesia's Jakarta Composite Index and Malaysia's index both ended flat, while Vietnam edged down 0.1 percent and the Philippines fell 0.5 percent.
Foreign inflows to the region were mixed as investors awaited further clues for direction. Thailand and Indonesia saw net foreign inflows of $12.57 million and $12.27 million respectively, while Malaysia witnessed $21.05 million in outflows. Philippines saw net foreign buying of $12.09 million.
