The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) index ended February, 2016 at 1,332.37 points, up 3.4 percent from end-2015 and up 2.4 percent from January, considered outperforming other exchanges in the region, underpinned by hopes of capital inflows as a result of the economic stimulus of central banks in developing countries such as Europe and Japan; and after their economic data announced was lower than forecast. Thanks to high liquidity and attractive prices of the Thai stock market, foreign investors reversed to be net buyers in February after being net sellers for three consecutive months. The rise was driven by large cap stocks in SET50 having good earnings growth and high dividends.
At the end of February, the combined market capitalization of the SET’s main board and Market for Alternative Investment (mai) was at THB 13.03 trillion (USD 369.2 billion), a 2.3 percent increase from a month earlier. The average daily trading value of SET and mai in February was THB 41.8 billion, down 5.7 percent from a month earlier partly due to light trading volume during Chinese new year.
