SE Asia Stocks-Philippine shares end at fresh high; most others up

Philippine shares closed at a record high on Friday in their fourth straight session of gains, while most other Southeast Asian stock markets edged up, recovering from early losses, as investors looked past North Korea's latest
missile test.
Philippine stocks  .PSI  climbed 0.4 percent in the session and closed at an all-time high of 8,180.85, bringing weekly
gains to 2 percent.
"Market sentiment continues to be positive, buoyed by the favourable outlook of analysts on the overall market. This
optimism was again validated with the market closing today at yet another record high and with trading value exceeding 11 billion pesos ($214.5 million)," Philippine Stock Exchange CEO Ramon S Monzon said in a statement.
Foreign investors were net buyers in the session to the tune of 473.7 million pesos ($9.2 million).
Property developer Ayala Land  ALI.PS  and SM Investment  SM.PS  were among the top gainers, climbing 1.9 percent and 1.2 percent, respectively.
North Korea's latest missile launch had little impact on the market, said Raul Ruiz, head of research at RCBC Securities.  
North Korea fired a missile on Friday that flew over Japan's northern Hokkaido far out into the Pacific Ocean, weighing on Asian equities early in the session.     
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  finished 0.4 percent higher, adding 0.3 percent on the week.
Bank Danamon Indonesia Tbk  BDMN.JK  gained as much as 3.8 percent while paper products maker Indah Kiat Pulp & Paper Tbk PT  INKP.JK  closed up 12.1 percent.
Singapore shares  .STI  ended down 0.4 percent, weighed down by financials. Top lender DBS Group  DBSM.SI  slipped 1 percent, and closed at its lowest since May 2. The index ended the week 0.4 percent lower.
Malaysian shares ended up 0.3 percent, while Thai shares  .SETI  eked out a small gain.
