SE Asia Stocks-Singapore falls on profit-booking; Philippines up 1 pct

Singapore shares fell on Thursday on concerns over tighter monetary policy following strong growth
data and as investors took profits after four straight sessions of gains, while the Philippine index  .PSI  rose about 1 percent on industrials.
In Asian stock markets, moves were mostly minor, with Japan  closed for a holiday. U.S. stocks were little changed on Wednesday ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.  
Singapore shares  .STI  closed down 0.3 percent, with lenders OCBC  OCBC.SI  falling 0.3 percent and DBS Group Holdings  DBSM.SI  declining 0.9 percent. Thai Beverage  TBEV.SI  dropped 1.6 percent.
"What we are seeing that it (the index) is just taking a breather," said Wong Kok Hoong, sales trader at Maybank Kim Eng Securities.
The city-state's economy grew at its fastest pace in nearly four years in the third-quarter, thanks to a boom in manufacturing that some analysts say will encourage tighter monetary policy in 2018. 
Singapore and other trade-reliant economies in Asia have received a boost this year from an improvement in global demand, with Thailand and the Philippines also reporting better-than-expected economic growth figures.  
Philippine shares  .PSI  rose, with index heavyweight SM Investments Corp  SM.PS  up 1.5 percent and Aboitiz Equity Ventures  AEV.PS  gaining 4.4 percent.
"The infrastructure program of the government and the investment climate of the country is improving," said a Manila-based analyst, who did not want to be named.
The Philippine tax reform bill, aimed at generating revenue to fund a multi-billion dollar infrastructure program, is awaiting Senate approval.  
Vietnam  .VNI  closed 0.1 percent higher, after earlier rising as much as 1 percent to a fresh near-decade peak.  
Real estate firm Vingroup JSC  VIC.HM  gained 0.7 percent, while Vietnam Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Industry and Trade  CTG.HM  jumped 4.6 percent.
Indonesian stocks  .JKSE  edged lower, with an index of the country's 45 most liquid stocks  .JKLQ45  ending little changed.
