lunes 1 de septiembre de 2014 06:42 GYT

BANGKOK, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Stocks in Indonesia rebounded on
Monday amid foreign-led buying in selected large caps such as
Telkom Indonesia and Bank Central Asia,
while the Thai index hit a 15-month closing high as some
investors welcomed a new military-led government.
    Jakarta's composite index rose 0.8 percent after a
fall on Friday to the lowest close since Aug. 12.
    The stock exchange posted net foreign inflows worth 127
billion rupiah ($10.84 million) as the rupiah eased but
pared some losses after Indonesia posted a small trade surplus
in July.  
    Bangkok's SET index ended up 0.2 percent, a second
straight day of gains, at 1,565.35, the highest close since May
30, 2013.
    The formation of a new cabinet on Sunday boosted hopes
related to fiscal disbursement for the fiscal year starting in
October, lifting shares seen among beneficiaries of government
spending such as Bangkok Bank and construction firm Ch
    Singapore was an underperformer, with key Straits Times
Index falling 0.4 percent to the lowest close since
Aug. 18, led by a 7.3 percent drop in StatsChipPac.
