SE Asia Stocks-Most fall as trade woes hurt risk appetite


* Philippines top loser with 1.4 pct drop
    
* Singapore gains on 'window dressing'

    By Devika Syamnath
    
Sept 25 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets closed lower on Tuesday as an escalation in the Sino-U.S. trade dispute hurt risk appetite, while a weak peso piled on the Philippines' woes.
    
Broader Asia also struggled after China and the United States imposed new tariffs on each other's goods on Monday, with neither side looking to back down and adding to worries about risks to global growth.  
    
"The failure of China and the U.S. to come to terms on the negotiation table... is creating weakness in major economies in Asia, and has resulted in most Southeast Asian equities to retreat from what they gained last week," said Manny Cruz, a Manila-based analyst with Asiasec Equities Inc.
    
Earlier this month, Chinese officials welcomed an invitation from Washington for a new round of trade talks but then scrapped plans for diplomatic discussions on Friday.
    
Philippine shares  .PSI  fell 1.4 percent, making them the top losers in the region, weighed down by real estate and
financial stocks.
    
"Weakness of the peso and expectations of higher inflation for the month of September are two factors that dragged market sentiment," Cruz said.
    
The peso  PHP=  extended its retreat into a fourth session, hitting a near 13-year low, ahead of an expected rate hike at the central bank's meeting on Thursday.
    
Property owner SM Investments  SM.PS  and Bank of the Philippine Islands  BPI.PS  were the biggest burdens on the index, shedding 2.7 percent and 3.6 percent, respectively.
    
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  slipped, hurt by consumer staples and material stocks. Unilever Indonesia Tbk PT  UNVR.JK  was the top drag with a loss of 2.3 percent.
    
An index of the country's 45 most liquid stocks  declined 0.2 percent.
    
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  fell 0.3 percent with telco Axiata Group Bhd  AXIA.KL  shedding 4.4 percent, while Vietnam stocks   edged lower, hurt mostly by banks.
    
Singapore shares  closed 0.5 percent higher, extending gains into a fifth session, with Cruz attributing it to "window
dressing" before the third quarter's close - a practice where portfolio managers try to improve the appearance of a fund's  performance near the year- or quarter-end.
    
Financials accounted for most of the rise, with top lender Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp  OCBC.SI  closing 0.8 percent higher.

ASEAN  ANALYSIS

This year in Thailand-what next?


AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
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
