BANGKOK, Sept 2 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets
rose on Tuesday amid inflows into selected large caps, with the
Philippine index extending its gains for a second day, the
Indonesian benchmark climbing to a near two-week high and the
Thai key index hitting a 15-month high.
    Foreign investors were net buyers of large cap stocks such
as Philippines-listed SM Investments Corp, Philippine
Long Distance Telephone and Indonesia's
telecommunications firm XL Axiata, stock exchange data
showed.
    The Philippine main index finished up 0.3 percent,
adding to Monday's 0.5 percent gain and further rebounding from
a near two-week low hit on Friday. Jakarta's composite index
 rose to 5,201.59, its highest close since Aug. 21.
    The Thai SET index rose for a third consecutive
session, gaining 0.2 percent to 1,568.60, the highest since May
30, 2013.
    Brokers in Bangkok attributed the rise to hopes of a
possible loosening of policy by the European Central Bank later
this week, optimism about the new government and some economic
policies expected to be announced soon.
  
    The Thai stock market posted net foreign inflows worth 846
million baht ($26.36 million) while the Malaysian bourse
recorded 110 million ringgit worth of net foreign buying ($34.61
million).
