HANOI, April 22 (Reuters) - All stock markets in Southeast
Asia enjoyed a profitable trade on Tuesday, with the Singapore
bourse scaling a closing high of more than 10 months on gains in
property stocks.
    Singapore's benchmark Straits Times Index rose 0.67
percent to close at 3,277.53, the highest since June 4 last
year.
    Gains in real estate companies were buoyed by a recent offer
of CapitaLand to buy out minority shareholders in its
shopping mall unit CapitaMalls Asia Ltd, analysts and
traders said. 
    "It had a positive impact... Property counters have been
lagging behind the index for quite a long time now," said a
Singapore-based trader with DBS.
    Real estate firm City Developments jumped 4.36
percent and CapitaLand climbed 0.93 percent.
    The Philippine index marked its fourth straight day
of gains amid positive sentiment as investors expected firms to
report good corporate earnings, due between late April and early
May, analysts said.
    It rose 0.26 percent to end at 6,784.95, the highest since
July 25 last year. It has risen 15.2 percent this year, Reuters
data showed, making it the region's best performer.
    Stocks in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand
 and Vietnam also climbed, with Vietnam rebounding
from a low of 10 weeks to end up 2.1 percent on bargain-hunting,
led by banks and property stocks.
