SE Asia Stocks-Thai stocks tumble after palace statement on King's health

Thai shares fell 3.6 percent on Monday in their biggest intraday percentage drop since August 2015 after
the palace said late on Sunday that King Bhumibol Adulyadej's health was in an unstable condition after receiving
haemodialysis treatment.
It is unusual for the palace to state that the king's health is not stable. Statements on his health are usually issued after
the monarch's condition shows improvement or when he is recovering from an illness.
Anxiety over the king's health and an eventual succession has formed the backdrop to more than a decade of bitter
political divide in Thailand that has included two military coups and often-violent street demonstrations.
"In the short term, it will create some uncertainty for Thailand, which will mean we'll see not as many people wanting
to invest," said Josh Crabb, head of Asian equities at Old Mutual Global Investors in Hong Kong.
The Thai stock index  .SETI  closed at its lowest in over three weeks dragged down by financial and consumer stocks.
Investors shrugged off deputy prime minister Somkid Jatusripitak's comment that Thailand's economy is expected to
grow 3.2 percent to 3.5 percent this year.   
Vietnam  .VNI  fell 1.4 percent to its biggest intraday percentage loss in nearly a month as energy and basic materials
sectors performed poorly.
Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corp  GAS.HM  and construction steel producer Hoa Phat Group JSC  HPG.HM  lost nearly five percent each.
Oil prices fell on Monday over doubts that an OPEC-led plan to cut output would ease a supply glut that has dogged markets for over two years.    
Philippine stocks  .PSI  declined for a fourth consecutive session to its lowest in three weeks as investors appeared to
take a step back from ploughing funds into the broader market as they awaited Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corp's  IPO-PSP.PS   initial public offering.   
"I believe a lot of domestic investors are conserving funds for the IPO," said Joseph Roxas, an analyst with Manila-based Eagle Equities.
Singapore shares  .STI  fell to their lowest in a week, pulled down by consumer goods and oil & gas.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
