SE Asia Stocks-Thai SET index worst performer on week

viernes 24 de julio de 2015 08:03 GYT
 

BANGKOK, July 24 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock
markets fell on Friday, with the Thai benchmark sliding to a
near 14-month closing low amid disappointing corporate earnings
and Singapore's key index hitting a more than one-week low after
weak production data.
    The Thai SET index ended the day down 0.5 percent at
1,438.08, the lowest close since May 30, 2014. It dropped 2.8
percent on the week, the region's worst performer.
    Shares of PTT Exploration and Production Pcl,
which posted a 94 percent drop in second quarter earnings,
declined 1.9 percent. Energy shares were broadly weak
amid a fall in global oil prices.  
    Singapore's Straits Times Index was down 0.1
percent at 3,352.65, the lowest close since July 15, with a
worse-than-expected industrial production in June hurting
sentiment. 
    Stocks in the region ended the week little changed. Malaysia
 was down 0.4 percent on the week and Indonesia 
was 0.3 percent lower. The Philippines rose 0.4 percent
on the week, with Vietnam gaining 0.4 percent.
