JAKARTA, Aug 4 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock
markets fell on Tuesday, with the Thai index snapping a
three-day rising streak as a weak economy dashed hopes of strong
corporate earnings while the Malaysian index retreated as
investors cashed quick gains in telecoms.
    The Thai SET index eased, trimming some of the
combined 1.6 percent gain in the three sessions to Monday.
Shares of mobile operator Advanced Info Service fell
1.2 percent on lower revenue growth forecast. 
    Banking shares fell 0.5 percent ahead of the Bank of
Thailand's rate-setting committee meeting on Wednesday, with 20
out of 23 economists in a Reuters poll predicting the one-day
repurchase rate would be left unchanged. 
    Malaysian stocks ended a three-day rally with a 1.2
percent decline after having closed the previous session at
their highest in nearly two months. 
    Leading the losses was telecommunications firm Maxis Bhd
 which ended 8.5 percent lower.
    Stocks in Indonesia fell 0.4 percent, a day ahead of
its second quarter GDP announcement. Indonesia's GDP is expected
to have slowed in the second quarter to its weakest in nearly
six years. 
    The median forecast of 22 analysts in a Reuters poll is for
growth at 4.61 percent, even weaker than the 4.71 percent growth
posted in January-March. 
    Singapore eased marginally while Vietnam 
fell 1.4 percent, extending losses to a third day.
    Bucking the trend, the Philippines stock index rose
0.3 percent.
