SE Asia Stocks-Thai stocks sink to 7-month lows on concerns over security, king

Thai stocks fell nearly 7 percent on Wednesday to their lowest in seven months after police warned of a bomb plot in Bangkok and on concerns about the health of 88-year-old King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
Police said on Tuesday they have increased security at major landmarks in the capital, at airports and in surrounding
provinces following reports of bomb plots just weeks after deadly attacks rocked the country's south.  
The tourism industry, which accounts for about 10 percent of Thailand's economy, has weathered more than a decade of political unrest, including two military coups and a wave of bombings in August.  
The SET index  .SETI  skidded for a fourth straight session and ended down 2.5 percent. Basic materials and telecoms led the losses.
Thailand's king, the world's longest reigning monarch, is in an unstable condition after receiving haemodialysis treatment, the palace said on Sunday.   
"There has not been any news from the palace since Sunday. If there is an information vacuum then the event risk would increase," a Singapore-based economist, who declined to be identified.
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.
Chemicals producer PTT Global  PTTGC.BK  and mobile operator Advanced Info Service PCL  ADVANC.BK  shed 3.8 percent and 2 percent. respectively.
Most other Southeast Asian markets also ended lower, tracking Asian peers, on subdued risk sentiment as expectations
that U.S. Federal Reserve would hike interest rates in December lifted the dollar and pushed up bond yields overnight .
"The speculation is that a hike in interest rates would lead to some of the flow destruction in the markets and therefore, it adds some pressure on sentiment," said Taye Shim, an analyst with Daewoo Securities in Indonesia.
Sentiment also took a hit as a dour start to Wall Street's corporate earnings season knocked U.S. stocks.  .N  
The main index in the Philippines  .PSI  closed down 1.2 percent, falling to its lowest in four months, with financials
and energy leading the fall.
Singapore shares  .STI  fell 1.5 percent to their lowest in nearly four weeks.   
  Market               Current       Previous       Pct Move
  Singapore          2813.71        2856.13         -1.49
  Bangkok            1406.18        1442.21         -2.50
  Manila               7429.82        7520.82          -1.21
  Jakarta               5364.611      5381.997        -0.32
  Kuala Lumpur  1667.03         1668.72         -0.10

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.

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
