SE Asia Stocks -Singapore at 1-month low as property shares fall
BANGKOK, Sept 15 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets were flat to weaker on Monday as investors weighed in the risks of weak China's factory output data in August and the direction of U.S. monetary policy from the Federal Reserve meeting on Wednesday. Singapore was an underperformer, with the Straits Times Index sliding 1 percent to 3,312.47, the lowest close since Aug. 14. Property shares fell, led down by CapitaLand, after data showed sales of private homes by developers in Singapore in August slumped 43 percent from a year earlier. China's factory output grew at the weakest pace in nearly six years in August while growth in other key sectors also cooled, raising fears the world's second-largest economy may be at risk of a sharp slowdown unless Beijing takes fresh stimulus measures. The Philippines witnessed a net foreign selling worth of 805 million peso ($18.18 million), Indonesia saw 578 billion rupiah ($48.47 million) foreign selling and Malaysia's net foreign selling hit 225 million ringgit ($69.77 million), Thomson Reuters and stock exchange data showed.
