SE Asia Stocks-Higher as China economy seen stabilising

Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended higher on Wednesday, with the Philippines gaining 2 percent, as encouraging Chinese economic data and Wall Street advancing on solid corporate earnings kept investor sentiment agreeable.  
China's economy grew 6.7 percent in the third quarter from a year earlier, steady from the previous quarter and in line with
market expectations.  
Wednesday's data portrayed the economy as slowly stabilising but increasingly needy for government spending and a housing
boom for growth, as private investment and exports remain weak.
Investment in Chinese real estate picked up pace in September after edging higher in the previous month,
highlighting the persistence of investor demand.   
"China data is a bit of a mixed bag. Though the headlines said met expectations, there are some soft spots in the gain in
industrial production," said Vishnu Varathan, a senior economist with Singapore-based Mizuho Corporate Bank.
"To the extent that investments in China are holding up, it's giving some of the China-focused markets a bit of a lift."
Philippine shares  .PSI  saw gains across all sectors, led by financial and consumer stocks.
BDO Unibank Inc  BDO.PS  rose as much as 3.7 percent, its biggest percentage gain in three months, before closing 3.6 percent higher.
Philippine stocks began rallying on Tuesday on hopes that President Rodrigo Duterte's foreign visits would create an
inflow of business. Duterte is in China this week.
Vietnam's main stock index  .VNI  rose 1 percent as financial and consumer stocks powered through. Real estate
investing firm Vingroup JSC  VIC.HM  climbed 2 percent.
Thai shares  .SETI  extended gains after mid-day, rising 0.6 percent. Consumer stocks were the biggest gainers.  
Thailand's Deputy Prime Minister said the country has no need to introduce additional economic resources, amid concerns
that domestic activity could be affected by a year of mourning for King Bhumibol Adulyadej.*:nL4N1CP21A
Indonesia  .JKSE  was the only market that fell, with a 0.4 percent drop.
  Market               Current       Previous        Pct Move
  Singapore          2844.62        2830.63              0.49
  Bangkok            1486.28        1477.54              0.59
  Manila                7721.57       7571.15               1.99
  Jakarta               5409.288     5430.048             -0.38
