SE Asia Stocks-Philippines, Singapore recover on bargain-hunting

The Philippine index snapped a three-day losing streak on Wednesday and ended more than 1 percent higher
as investors picked up battered shares while Singapore hit a near eight-week closing high, helped by gains in financials and consumer stocks.
The Manila index  .PSI  rose 1.1 percent to 7210.87, led by gains in real estate and industrial stocks. Ayala Land  ALI.PS rose 3.1 percent while JG Summit Holdings  JGS.PS  jumped 4 percent.
"Most likely, some investors are trying to find bargains as 7,100 is expected to be a technical support level. But, the
rally is not driven by fundamentals," said April Lee-Tan, head of research at COL Financial INC.
Meanwhile, investors are keenly awaiting Philippines annual inflation data due on Friday. The annual inflation rate likely continued to climb in September, a Reuters poll showed, keeping pressure on the country's central bank to raise interest rates further.
"The market has been anticipating a bad number."
Among other markets in the region, the Singapore index .STI  rose 0.8 percent, led by lender DBS Holdings  DBSM.SI , up 1.3 percent, and Thai Beverage  TBEV.SI , up 6 percent.
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  finished 0.1 percent lower, dragged down by consumer staples and materials sectors, as
caution set in after the country's central bank governor said interest rates must be increased before the Federal Reserve raises U.S. rates to avoid "drastic capital reversals".
The index of the country's 45 most liquid stocks was down 0.4 percent.
Thai shares  .SETI  slid 0.4 percent while the Vietnam index fell 0.2 percent.

 Market               Current     Previous close    Pct Move

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.
