BANGKOK, July 23 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock
markets fell on Thursday, with Thai benchmark retreating and
Malaysia's key index extending losses amid foreign-led selling,
but stocks in Vietnam hit a more than one-week high with
large-cap stocks leading the pack.
    The SET index fell 0.2 percent to 1,444.66, the
lowest close since June 2, 2014. Shares of PTT Exploration and
Production eased 0.3 percent after it posted a 94
percent drop in quarterly net profit. 
    Foreign investors sold shares worth a net 2.7 billion baht 
($77.8 million) after offloading a net 2.7 billion baht over
past three sessions, stock exchange data showed. 
    Kuala Lumpur's composite index fell 0.4 percent,
with foreign investors selling a net 269 million ringgit ($70.7
million), data showed.
    Vietnam's benchmark VN Index was up 0.34 percent at
632.01, the highest close since July 14. Dairy product maker
Vinamilk's shares climbed 2.52 percent and PetroVietnam
Gas advanced 3.36 percent.
