SINGAPORE, April 29 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian shares rose
on optimism surrounding corporate earnings to be released
throughout the week, though the gains were muted in the face of
continuing tensions in Ukraine.
    A surge late in the day propped up Vietnam's benchmark VN
Index, reversing losses from the previous day. Vietnam
shares closed 0.9 percent higher.
    Philippine stocks advanced 0.5 percent, snapping four
straight sessions of losses on bargain hunting and healthy
first-quarter corporate earnings.  
    Shares of Bloomberry Resorts Corp were among the
top gainers, rising 2.9 percent to their highest in more than
seven months, after the casino operator posted a strong recovery
in first-quarter profit on Monday.
    Other markets saw modest gains, with Thailand,
Indonesia and Malaysia closing between 0.02
percent and 0.19 percent.
    Singapore's benchmark Straits Times Index trimmed
losses from earlier in the day, ticking down 0.15 percent at its
    Investors will be looking towards financial results released
by the three banks on Wednesday to gauge future performances on
the index.
