SE Asia Stocks-Philippines, Indonesia mark new closing highs   

Philippine and Indonesian shares posted record closing highs on Wednesday as overnight gains on Wall
Street buoyed sentiment across Asia, while Thailand edged down after scaling a 24-year peak.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  rose as much as 0.3 percent.
Philippine stocks  .PSI  extended gains to a fourth session, led by financial and telecom stocks, as expectations of a tax overhaul continued to boost investor optimism.  
The proposed tax reform measures will only have a modest inflationary impact and will not need a monetary policy
response, said Nestor Espenilla the central bank governor, who also brushed off a sharp decline in the peso currency in an upbeat message on the economy.  
The tax measures seek to expand the value-added tax base, raise excise taxes on fuel and automobiles, and slap levies on sugar-sweetened beverages among other changes. They were approved by the lower house of Congress in May, but have yet to be endorsed by the Senate.
Blue-chip BDO Unibank Inc  BDO.PS  rose 2.1 percent to close an all-time high while telecom service provider PLDT Inc  TEL.PS  closed 2.4 percent higher.
Indonesia's benchmark index  .JKSE  closed 0.2 percent higher, extending gains from the previous session, helped by
energy and material stocks.
Healthcare products maker Kalbe Farma Tbk  KLBF.JK  climbed nearly 3 percent while shares of mining contractor United Tractors  UNTR.JK  rose as much as 3.8 percent to hit an all-time high and were on track for their fifth straight session of gains.
An index of the country's 45 most liquid stocks rose 0.2 percent.
Vietnam stock market  .VNI  climbed nearly 1 percent, its biggest gain in over 2 months, led by financial stocks.  
Malaysian stock market  .KLSE  ended marginally up, helped by telecom and consumer discretionary stocks. Genting Bhd  GENT.KL  added nearly 1 percent, while CIMB Group Holdings Bhd  CIMB.KL  closed 0.8 percent up.     
Meanwhile, Thai shares  .SETI  erased early gains to end marginally lower, dragged by industrials. Airports of Thailand Inc  AOT.BK  slipped 1.3 percent, while oil and gas explorer PTT Exploration and Production Pcl  PTTEP.BK  ended 1.4 percent lower.
Singapore shares  .STI  shed 0.3 percent, weighed by financial and industrial stocks.
Market heavyweight Jardine Matheson Holdings Ltd  JARD.SI  slid 1.5 percent while United Overseas Bank Ltd  UOBH.SI  fell 0.6 percent.
