SE Asia Stocks - Most gain; Indonesia near 1-wk high

BANGKOK, Nov 3 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock
markets ended higher on Tuesday, with the Indonesian benchmark
climbing for a second day as domestic investors continued to
tiptoe back, but stocks in Thailand retreated as investors
locked in quick gains.
    Jakarta's composite index climbed 1.5 percent to a
near-one-week high in thin volume, which was 83 percent the
30-day average.
    Domestic investors were net buyers of big-caps such as Bank
Rakyat Indonesia and Bank Mandiri, while the
overall stock market posted net foreign sales for a fifth day,
worth 170 billion rupiah ($12.55 million). 
    The Thai SET index erased early gains to end a tad
lower, after having advanced over the past two days. Domestic
institutions unloaded shares for the first time in three days,
stock exchange data showed. 
    Stocks in Singapore ended a five-day losing streak
while Malaysia posted its first gain in seven days. The
Philippines extended Monday's rebound while Vietnam
 recovered from the earlier session's
weakness. 
    Brokers in the region said they expected a limited upside in
sharemarkets near-term due to unexciting corporate earnings and
a murky earnings outlook.
    Asian stocks rose on Tuesday helped by buoyant U.S. markets
and recent data that indicated the global economy may have
turned a corner, though wary central banks signalled a recovery
may be anything but durable.
