SE Asia Stocks-Most end down on U.S. tax reform jitters  

Most Southeast Asian stock markets gave up early gains on Monday to close lower on uncertainty over a
U.S. tax reform deal, while Vietnam shares closed at their highest in nearly a decade.
World stock markets moved further away from recent record highs as U.S. Senate Republicans unveiled a new tax plan that differs from the House of Representatives' version and there are few signs of a compromise.

"Digesting tax reform banter is an unsavoury business as even the ambient noise is triggering unusual moves across asset classes," Stephen Innes, head of trading in Asia-Pacific for Oanda in Singapore, wrote in a note.
"Besides with Christmas just around the corner, investors will be more inclined to book year-end profits, adding to sell-off momentum."
Vietnam shares  .VNI  extended gains into a seventh session and closed 1.3 percent higher. They have climbed more than 32 percent so far this year, making them the region's best performer.
Food processor Vietnam Dairy Products Joint Stock Co  VNM.HM  was the biggest boost, rising 6.2 percent to a record closing high.
Philippine shares  .PSI  dropped 1.2 percent, dragged by industrial and real estate stocks.
SM Investments Corp  SM.PS  ended 2.8 percent lower, while Ayala Land  ALI.PS  declined 3 percent.
The market fell on profit-booking in stocks which saw steep rises in the last few sessions, said Fio Dejesus of Manila-based RCBC Securities.
Singapore shares  .STI  closed marginally lower with gains in industrials outweighed by losses in financials.  
DBS Group Holdings Ltd  DBSM.SI  was the biggest drag with a decline of 1.1 percent.
Thai stocks  .SETI  dropped for a third straight session and hit their lowest close since Oct. 19.
Airports of Thailand Public Co Ltd  AOT.BK  closed 1.3 percent lower, while Total Access Communication PCL  DTAC.BK   ended down 6.3 percent.
