SE Asia Stocks - Most higher amid inflows; Indonesia ends losing streak

miércoles 27 de agosto de 2014 06:55 GYT

BANGKOK, Aug 27 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock
markets gained on Wednesday in line with others in Asia, with
Indonesia snapping three days of falls aided by bargain-hunting,
but shares of coal miner PT Bumi Resources Tbk came
under selling pressure.
    Jakarta's Composite Index finished up 0.4 percent,
recovering from a combined 1.2 percent loss over the past three
sessions, amid selective buying in recently beaten-down stocks
such as Bank Rakyat Indonesia.
    Among underperformers, Bumi Resources dropped 2.1 percent
after a report that Indonesia may revoke the contracts of 17
coal miners that owe royalties to the government, including PT
Arutmin Indonesia, a unit of PT Bumi Resources Tbk.
    The region brought in foreign inflows amid positive
sentiment in Asia, including Malaysia's 157.61 million
ringgit($50 million) worth of net foreign buying and Thailand's
419 million baht ($13.13 million), stock exchange data showed.
    The Philippine stock market posted a net foreign
inflow of 1.2 billion peso ($27.48 million), mainly from strong
inflows into shares of Philippine Long Distance Telephone
, stock exchange data showed.
    The euro was cracking under pressure on Wednesday as
feverish speculation of further policy stimulus in the euro zone
drove bond yields to all-time lows and lifted Asian stocks to
peaks not seen in almost seven years.
