Feb 24 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stocks ended weaker
on Monday with foreign investors exiting from Indonesia,
Malaysia and the Philippines, while Jakarta fell from a
five-month high amid caution over the impact of the U.S. Federal
Reserve's stimulus withdrawal.
    The Jakarta Composite Index ended 0.5 percent down,
falling from a five-month closing high hit in the previous
session despite a net foreign inflow of $46.27 million.
    Thai stocks ended 0.2 percent weaker at their lowest
close since Feb. 11, led by a 1.9 percent fall in the country's
largest mobile operator Advanced Info Service Pcl (AIS)
 and a 2.1 percent drop in Shin Corp. 
    Data showed more subscribers had switched to rival mobile
networks, following a call by anti-government protesters to
boycott businesses linked to Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.
    Bangkok saw a net foreign inflow of $6.48 million, but has
witnessed a foreign outflow of about $970 million in the 20
straight sessions through Friday, on concerns over continued
political unrest.
    Malaysian shares edged down 0.1 percent with a
foreign outflow of $17.30 million, while Philippine stocks
 ended 0.2 percent weaker with a net foreign outflow of
$48.46 million.
    Vietnam's benchmark VN Index closed up 1 percent on
news that the government would make a decision late this month
on raising the foreign ownership limit in some listed firms,
analysts said.
