BANGKOK, June 30 (Reuters) - The Philippine index ended
nearly flat on Tuesday, recouping most early losses amid
foreign-led buying, while share markets in Southeast Asia
rebounded from the fall on the previous day but concerns
remained over a looming Greek debt default. 
    Philippine composite index was a tad 0.04 percent
down at 7,564.50, bouncing off a near one-week low of 7,496.43.
    The Philippine bourse said net foreign inflows lifted shares
such as Metropolitan Bank & Trust Co and Aboitiz Power
Corp both gained more than 1 percent.
    The Philippines' index posted a 4.7 percent fall in the
quarter ended June, trimming its year-to-date gain to 4.62
percent, still among regional outperformers.
    Thai stocks underperformed as weak indicators in May hit
economic proxies such as banks, while Prime Minister
Prayuth Chan-ocha said Thai economy should see only a minor
impact from the Greek debt crisis.
    The key SET index shed 0.4 percent on Tuesday,
ending the quarter with a modest decline of 0.09 percent. Thai
stock market will be closed on Wednesday for a market holiday,
reopening on Thursday.
    Major Southeast Asian stock markets all suffered losses in
the second quarter, reflecting uncertainties such as the U.6S.
interest rate hike expectations, the Greek debt overhang and
economic slowdown in the region.
    Indonesia was the quarter's worst performer, with an
11 percent drop, followed by Malaysia's 6.8 percent and
Singapore's 3.8 percent. Vietnam bucked the
trend, up 7.6 percent.
