SE Asia Stocks-Most fall; Bangkok violence weighs on Thai shares

miércoles 26 de febrero de 2014 06:37 GYT

BANGKOK, Feb 26 (Reuters) - Thai shares eked out slim gains
on Wednesday as investors bought banking shares in a dividend
reporting season while stocks in Indonesia and most regional
bourses slid as concerns over opaque policy moves in China kept
investors on edge. 
    After a range-bound session, Bangkok's SET index 
ended up 0.06 percent at 1,304.62. Gainers included Siam
Commercial Bank, which announced an attractive dividend
early in the week. 
    Shares of Advanced Info Service and Shin
Corporation erased earlier gains amid a call by
anti-government protesters to boycott businesses linked to Prime
Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. 
    Trading volume at the Thai bourse was relatively weak after
political violence in downtown Bangkok almost every night this
    Singapore's Straits Times Index fell for a second
session, ending down 0.5 percent at its lowest close in almost
one week, while Jakarta's composite index shed 1
percent, a third session of fall, to a near two-week low.
    Malaysia retreated 0.6 percent, led by an 8.5 percent drop
in shares of budget carrier AirAsia X Bhd after
announcing a net loss in its fourth quarter. 
    Fund flows in the region were mixed, with Malaysia recording
net foreign sales 50 million ringgit ($15.24 million) and the
Philippines reporting a net foreign buying of 212.9 million peso
($4.77 million), stock exchange data showed.
