SE Asia Stocks-Thailand rises most in five years

Thai shares rose 4.6 percent on Friday, the sharpest in five years, as markets stayed calm after the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej on Thursday.
The king had been unwell for much of the past year and the announcement by the palace of his passing away followed two announcements made over the past week about his deteriorating health.  

The Thai stock index  .SETI  started recovering towards the end of Thursday's trading after four sessions of falls.  
"The fast money tends to sell first and then when the news is out, they rebalance their positions. They (investors) may
have been shorting into this and now that the news is out they are trying to buy back," said Khiem Do, head of Asian
multi-asset investments, Baring Asset Management.  
"But I don't think this is the end of the fall, or the uncertainty about Thailand. We have to wait and see."  
Sentiment is likely to be subdued due to the demise of the revered king, said Kum Soek Ching, head of Southeast Asia
research at Credit Suisse Private Banking. But she said she did not expect any significant downside from here on.
"Consumer, retail and F&B are expected to underperform with more restrained spending in at least the next 30 days, but the earnings impact shouldn't be lasting," she added.
For the week, the stock index declined 1.78 percent, its biggest since the week ended Sept. 9.
Most other Southeast Asian markets gained, tracking Asian peers, as better-than-expected Chinese inflation data eased
concerns about the world's second-largest economy.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  was up 0.6 percent after dropping 1.1 percent on Thursday.
The Manila market  .PSI  rose 1 percent, snapping a seven-session losing streak, but posted a weekly decline of 2.5
Energy and financials led the gains, with Semirara Mining Corp  SCC.PS  gaining over 3 percent and BDO Unibank Inc  BDO.PS  rising more than 1 percent.
Indonesian stocks  .JKSE  rose over 1 percent, while Singapore  .STI  and Vietnam  .VNI  closed slightly higher.
For the week, Singapore fell 2.1 percent while Vietnam gained 0.5 percent.
  Market              Current          Previous     Pct Move
  Singapore               2815.24        2805.48       0.35

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
