SE Asia Stocks-Most end on weak note in strong October

Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Friday but notched up gains on the month, with trading remaining subdued due to caution about global central bank policies but positive corporate earnings lifted select regional stocks.
Asian shares edged higher and were on track for their biggest monthly rise since January 2012, as global central banks kept stimulative policies intact and many hinted at further steps to re-energise their economies.    
Singapore's key Straits Times Index  .STI  erased most early losses and ended the day down 0.1 percent. It was up 7.4 percent in October, the first monthly gain in six. Trading volumes fell to 84 percent of a 30-day average, similar to regional peers.

Vietnam  .VNI  was an outperformer on the month with a gain of nearly 8 percent after two straight losing months.
Indexes in Indonesia  .JKSE , the Philippines  .PSI  and Thailand  .SETI  all ended the month higher after several months of losses while Malaysia  .KLSE  posted gains for a second successive month in October.

Among the bright spots, Singapore's United Overseas Bank  UOBH.SI  shares rose 1.5 percent after the bank posted a 1 percent drop in third-quarter net profit but beat expectations on higher interest rate margins and one-off gains from the sale of investment securities.
