SE Asia Stocks-Rise tracking Asian peers, Wall Street

Southeast Asian stock markets, except Philippines, ended higher on Wednesday, tracking gains in Asia
and U.S. indexes overnight, which hit record closing highs led by gains in this year's top-performing technology sector.  
Asian shares  .MIAPJ0000PUS  hit a more than 10-year peak again, as strong world growth and rising corporate profits lured
hordes of investors into equities.  
On Tuesday, the S&P technology index  .SPLRCT  gained 1.2 percent, helped by a nearly 1.9 percent rise in Apple Inc
 AAPL.O . The index has risen 38.6 percent this year, by far more than any other sector.  .N  
"A strong Wall Street has spilled over to Asian equities," said Manny Cruz, an analyst at Manila-based Asiasec Equities
Singapore shares  .STI  firmed for a fourth straight session, with the index closing at its highest since May, 2015.
The city-state's top lenders DBS Group Holdings  DBSM.SI gained 1.9 percent, while OCBC  OCBC.SI  rose 0.8 percent.  
Thailand  .SETI  ended up 0.2 percent, led by energy stocks and materials, with Siam Cement  SCC.BK  1.6 percent higher.
Thai exports rose for an eighth straight month in October, with shipments recovering despite the baht  THB=TH  appreciating
more than 9 percent against the dollar so far this year.
The Philippine index  .PSI  fell 0.3 percent after having gained as much as 0.7 percent earlier, dragged down by
industrial and telecom stocks.
"We saw furious selling at the end. The Philippines market is down mostly due to accelerated selling of BDO Unibank and SM
Investments. Funds and investors are taking profits off the two stocks," said Fio de Jesus, an analyst at RCBC Securities.  
Index heavyweight BDO Unibank Inc  BDO.PS  slid 3 percent, while SM Investments Corp  SM.PS  lost 1.5 percent.
Shares of telecom operator PLDT Inc  TEL.PS  slipped for a third day, their lowest in nearly two months.  
On Monday, President Rodrigo Duterte invited China to operate a third major telecom firm in the country, turning to a
historic rival to break a longstanding duopoly that has frustrated consumers for years.  

Vietnam  .VNI  rose 1.6 percent, hovering near decade-highs, helped by financials and consumer staples.
