SE Asia Stocks- Subdued; Vietnam falls on foreign selling

Vietnam stocks  .VNI  ended 1.6 percent lower on Monday, hurt by consumer staples and financials on foreign selling while other Southeast Asian markets were largely subdued as weaker oil prices weighed.
"We have seen persistent foreign selling in index (stocks) in recent days. This is starting to affect the domestic
sentiment," said Fiachra Mac Cana managing director and head of research at Ho Chi Minh Securities.
Faros Construction  ROS.HM , which was down as much as 7 percent intraday recovered to end 0.8 percent higher.
Philippines  .PSI  the second biggest loser in the region, closed 0.9 percent lower, snapping three sessions of gains.
Industrials were among the top losers with conglomerate SM Investments Corp  SM.PS  ending 2.3 percent lower.
Oil prices, which slipped on Monday on fears that producer countries may fail to agree an output cut at their meeting on
Wednesday also kept markets subdued.  
"The fall in oil prices will have an impact on oil exporters like Indonesia and Malaysia. Oil is probably why the Southeast
Asian markets are not doing well today," said Mikey Macainag, an analyst with Manila-based Sunsecurities Inc.
The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) will meet in Vienna on Wednesday to decide on the details of a production cut.
Indonesia  .JKSE  finished 0.2 percent lower, dragged down by industrials and financials.
Singapore  .STI  bucked the trend to end 0.5 percent higher, extending gains for a fifth session with financials outperforming the broader market.
The city-state's three big banks, DBS Group Holdings  DBSM.SI  ended 1.8 percent higher while Oversea-Chinese Banking
Corp  OCBC.SI  gained 1.6 percent and United Overseas Bank Ltd  UOBH.SI  finished 0.8 percent firmer.
Malaysia  .KLSE  and Thailand  .SETI  were flat.
