SE Asia Stocks-Fall as U.S. Treasury yields hit over 7-year high

* Philippines falls for 5th straight week
* Indonesia ends week 4.1 pct lower
* U.S. payrolls data awaited
Oct 5 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Friday, wrapping up the week with losses, as U.S. Treasury
yields hit a more than seven-year high after robust economic data and hawkish comments from Federal Reserve officials stoked
concerns of faster-than-expected interest rate hikes.
The yield on 10-year Treasury bonds on Thursday hit its highest level since May 2011 on expectations that Friday's
payrolls report would be stronger than expected, thereby strengthening the Fed's case for an interest rate hike.
Higher U.S. yields are not favourable for emerging markets, as they tend to draw away foreign funds while pressuring local currencies.
Investors are expected to scour the U.S. government's September payroll report scheduled for release on Friday and
look closely for signs of wage growth, which could fan concerns about inflation.  
A Reuters poll showed non-farm payrolls likely increased by 185,000 jobs after rising 201,000 the previous month, with unemployment rate seen falling to an 18-month low of 3.8 percent.  

In the region, the Philippine index  .PSI  ended 0.2 percent lower weighed down by industrials. The index posted a 2.7 pct decline on week, its fifth straight weekly fall.
Earlier in the day, data showed the country's inflation rose for a ninth straight month in September, hitting a near-decade high of 6.7 percent, although coming in slightly lower than the 6.8 forecast in a Reuters poll. 
Conglomerate JG Summit Holdings  JGS.PS  declined 3.4 percent and SM Investments Corp  SM.PS  fell 0.6 percent.
Singapore shares  .STI  slipped 0.7 percent as Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation  OCBC.SI  declined 0.9
percent and Jardine Matheson Holdings  JARD.SI  slipped 0.4 percent. The city-state's benchmark index is down 1.5 percent this week.  
The country's central bank on Friday said it would issue its semiannual policy statement on October 12. As per a Reuters poll, the bank is expected to tighten it's monetary policy.
Malaysia's benchmark index  .KLSE  fell 0.7 percent to a seven-week closing low and ended the week 0.9 percent lower.
Government data showed the country's exports fell in August for the first time in six months, hit by declining shipments of  palm oil and slowing demand from the United States.
Indonesian shares  .KLSE  slumped 4.1 percent this week while Thai stocks ended the week 1.9 percent down.
 Market                Current          Previous Close       Pct Move
 Singapore           3209.79              3231.59                -0.67
 Bangkok             1720.52              1729.4                  -0.51
 Manila                7078.2                7093.34                -0.21
 Jakarta                5731.935            5756.619              -0.43
 Kuala Lumpur    1777.15              1790.11                -0.72
 Ho Chi Minh      1008.39              1023.62                -1.49
