SE Asia Stocks-Philippines extends gains to 5th session

    * Philippines notches up 4.5 pct gain over 5 sessions
    * Malaysian stocks end lower amid caution ahead of budget

Oct 22 (Reuters) - Philippine shares surged on Monday,extending their gains to a fifth straight session, while most
other Southeast Asian stock markets put in lacklustre performances.
The Philippine index  .PSI  closed 1.2 percent higher, notching up a 4.5 percent gain over the last five sessions, as
real-estate developer SM Prime Holdings  SMPH.PS  gained after reporting a jump in quarterly earnings. 
Bank stocks also boosted the Philippine market, with BDO Unibank Inc  BDO.PS  gaining 2.6 percent and Metropolitan Bank and Trust Co  MBT.PS  adding 4.5 percent.
Singapore shares  .STI  edged 0.5 percent higher as consumer goods and industrial stocks ticked up. Wine and soda distiller Thai Beverage PCL  TBEV.SI  added 3.1 percent and casino and gaming operator Genting Singapore Ltd  GENS.SI  rose 1.6 percent.
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  traded nearly flat, as telecom stocks like Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk  TLKM.JK  rose 1.8 percent and PT Indosat Tbk  ISAT.JK  added 6.0 percent to offset losses in the banking sector.
Meanwhile, Malaysian stocks  .KLSE  led losses in the region, closing 0.6 percent lower, as telecom giant Axiata Group Bhd  AXIA.KL  shed 6 percent and Telekom Malaysia  TLMM.KL  lost 4.2 percent.
"General sentiment in the Malaysian market is pretty cautious awaiting the upcoming union budget," said Nik-Ihsan, a technical analyst with Maybank Kim Eng.
The government had recently unveiled new forecasts, indicating wider fiscal deficits than earlier expected and an
austere 2019 budget scheduled to be presented on Nov. 2.
Rating agencies have warned its sovereign credit ratings could take a hit if the government cannot narrow its budget
Vietnamese stocks  .VNI  closed 0.5 percent lower, led by losses in financials. Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Foreign Trade of Vietnam  VCB.HM  dropped 1 percent, while Vietnam Prosperity Joint Stock Commercial Bank  VPB.HM  fell 2.7 percent.
Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said on Monday foreign direct investment inflows into Vietnam this year would likely reach a record $18 billion. 
He also said the Southeast Asian country would aim to keep the inflation rate at 4 percent for 2019.
However, he added there was pressure on Vietnam's inflation rate due to higher prices for crude oil and electricity as well as education and healthcare services.
Thai shares fell 0.6 percent as investor sentiment was hit after disappointing trade data for September. Exports, the key driver of its growth, fell 5.2 percent from a year earlier.
