SE Asia Stocks-Thai stocks end lower, but more inflows after emergency lifted

miércoles 19 de marzo de 2014 07:05 GYT

BANGKOK, March 19 (Reuters) - Thai stocks gave up early
gains to end lower on Wednesday on institutional-led selling
while Singapore shares snapped a two-day winning streak, with
shares of CapitaLand easing after it sold stake in an
Australian firm. 
    Bangkok's SET index closed down 0.6 percent,
extending Tuesday's fall. Profit-taking sent shares of hotelier
Central Plaza Hotel down 3.9 percent, making it the
worst performer among the top 50 large-caps.
    The rise in Thai shares this year has kept some investors
cautious on valuations, said strategist Koraphat Vorachet of
broker Nomura Pattanasin in Bangkok.  
    "Investors are more careful on stock valuations. This market
psychology is likely to lead to more consolidation," he added.
    Domestic institutions sold shares worth a net 1.29 billion
baht ($40.11 million) while foreign investors bought a net 1
billion baht ($31.09 million), turning net buyers for a second
consecutive day, after an emergency decree was lifted.
    Most Southeast Asian stocks came off intraday highs, in line
with Asian stock markets ahead of a U.S. Federal
Reserve policy decision later in the day.
