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
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.
