SE Asia Stocks-Philippines snaps 9-day losing streak

Philippine shares snapped a nine-day losing streak on Friday while Indonesia rose as energy stocks gained, with investors in other markets keeping to the sidelines on uncertainty over the outcome of the U.S. presidential elections next week.
 Investors have generally seen Hillary Clinton as the candidate who would maintain the status quo, while there is more
market uncertainty over what a Donald Trump presidency might mean in terms of economic policy, free trade and geopolitics.
The Philippine index  .PSI  ended 0.9 percent higher, led by utilities and consumer cyclicals, with infrastructure group
Aboitiz Equity Ventures Inc  AEV.PS  gaining 3.1 percent and conglomerate SM Investments Corp  SM.PS  ending firmer by 0.6 percent.
The index however fell 2.4 percent on the week, its second straight weekly loss.
"Investors are bargain hunting after the index declined for nine sessions. I think we are just recovering from an oversold condition," said Ralph Christian Bodollo, an equity research analyst with RCBC Securities Inc.
Singapore shares  .STI  ended lower for the sixth straight session, weighed down by telcos and industrials, with Starhub Ltd  STAR.SI  closing down 2.5 percent. The index lost 1 percent this week.
Thai shares  .SETI  fell, dragged down by industrials and consumer staples. The index lost 0.6 percent this week.
Indonesian stocks  .JKSE  ended 0.6 percent higher, led by basic materials and energy, with Adaro Energy Tbk PT  ADRO.JK   closing up 1.8 percent after the country raised its official crude price.
