Most Southeast Asian stocks rose on Friday, with the Thai SET index climbing almost 1 percent as a weaker baht lifted shares of exporters, but still suffered its worst monthly loss since August amid rising political tensions and fund outflows.

The SET index closed up 0.9 percent, rebounding from its day-low, led by a 6.8 percent jump in shares of electronic component exporter Delta Electronics Thailand and a 3.6 percent rise in shares of food exporter Charoen Pokphand
The baht has been among the under-performers in Asia in November with a 3.1 percent loss as political tensions caused foreign investors to sell Thai assets.  

It ended the month 5 percent lower, among under-performers in the region. Foreign investors offloaded $1.47 billion worth of Thai shares in the month to Nov. 28, reversing their combined net buying of $337 million in the previous two months.
