SE Asia Stocks -Indonesia underperforms on week

Indonesian shares eked out small gains on Friday, posting their worst weekly loss in almost three months amid concerns about a likely end to fuel subsidies, while Thai stocks trod water amid selling in recent gainers including construction-related firms.
 Indonesia's key index  ended up 0.2 percent, led by cement shares such as Indocement   and Semen Indonesia .

Foreign investors were net sellers of Indonesian shares worth 776 billion rupiah ($65.66 million), marking a fourth straight session of offloading, Thomson Reuters data showed.   
 The Thai SET index   closed a tad higher on the day and was down 0.2 percent on the week, its first weekly loss in six.

Fund flows were mixed across exchanges, with the Thai stock market reporting a net foreign buying of 737 million baht ($22.90 million), Malaysia   posting a net foreign selling of 173 million ringgit ($54.13 million) and the Philippines recording net outflows worth 265 million pesos ($6.03 million),
