SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia outperforms; Vietnam posts second straight fall
Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Monday, mirroring gains in Asian peers, except Vietnam, which fell for a second straight session after its government cut the gross domestic product growth target for 2016.
In Asia, a report that Deutsche Bank was negotiating a much smaller fine with the U.S. Department of Justice pushed shares
higher, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS edging up 0.8 percent.
Sentiment got a boost after oil prices stabilised on hopes that the OPEC output cut would help re-balance markets.
Indonesia .JKSE outperformed regional markets, and climbed nearly 2 percent, supported by gains in consumer non-cyclicals and energy stocks.
The country's annual inflation rate in September edged up from that in August, but remained close to a near seven-year
low, data from the statistics bureau showed on Monday.
"We are seeing some positive sentiment because Jokowi (Indonesian President Joko Widodo) has asked for a higher budget in terms of capex in 2017," said Harry Su, an analyst with Jakarta-based Bahana Securities.
"If this comes through then obviously the spending would increase, which in turn, could be positive for GDP growth."
The Jakarta Post reported on Saturday that the Indonesian government planned to improve the quality of spending after
recent budget cuts.
Singapore stocks .STI finished flat, after hitting its highest in more than three weeks earlier in the day.
Philippine shares .PSI bounced back from Friday's losses to post a gain of 0.6 percent, pulled up by industrials and consumer non-cyclical stocks.
Thai shares .SETI were buoyed by gains in energy stocks. While PTT PCL PTT.BK rose 2.4 percent, Thai Oil PCL TOP.BK
notched up 1.8 percent.
Thailand's consumer prices rose for a sixth straight month in September, but the pace remained benign, commerce ministry
data showed on Monday.
Bucking the trend, Vietnam .VNI shares posted a one-week closing low after the government slashed annual GDP growth target to between 6.3 percent and 6.5 percent due to a slowing economy. Initially, the government had targeted a GDP growth of
6.7 percent for this year.
The Malaysian stock market .KLSE was closed for a holiday.
