SE Asia Stocks-Philippines falls; others up as Fed rate hike prospects recede

Philippine shares fell 1.4 percent on Friday, erasing gains from the previous session, while other markets in region rose as the prospects of a rate hike by the Federal Reserve receded further on weak U.S. retail data.
U.S. retail sales fell more than expected in August, pointing to cooling domestic demand that further diminished expectations of a rate raise next week.  
Futures traders are now pricing in a 12 percent chance of a rate increase this month, down from 15 percent on Wednesday, according to CME Group's FedWatch tool. Consumer price inflation data, due later in the day, is the next test for rates-focused traders.   
"Asian markets are following the momentum on Wall Street," said Vishnu Varathan, a senior economist with Mizuho Bank.
Singapore shares  .STI  gained 0.8 percent, heading for their first rise in four sessions, driven by energy and financial stocks.
Keppel Corp Ltd  KPLM.SI  was up 1.2 percent, while DBS Group Holdings Ltd  DBSM.SI  rose 1.4 percent.
"Diminished prospects of a Fed rate hike boosted overall risk-on sentiment," said Varathan, adding there could be some profit-taking in the afternoon session.
Thai stocks  .SETI  gained marginally, with telecom and energy shares leading. Advanced Info Service Pcl  ADVANC.BK  rose 1.6 percent while PTT Pcl  PTT.BK  was up 1.2 percent.
Bucking the trend, Philippine shares dropped 1.4 percent, snapping Thursday's 2.2 percent gain, dragged down by consumer cyclicals and financials.
The market is reversing gains from the previous session as the last-minute buying on Thursday was seen to be unsustainable, said Charles Ang, an analyst with COL Financial Group Inc.
SM Investments Corp  SM.PS  fell 2.4 percent while Bank of the Philippine Islands  BPI.PS  dropped 3.6 percent.
"Expect it (index) to remain down for the rest of the day," Ang said.
Malaysia  .KLSE  was closed for a public holiday.

This year in Thailand-what next?

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. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
