SE Asia Stocks - Weak on foreign selling, Thai telecoms shares fall

BANGKOK, Nov 11 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets
mostly fell on Wednesday as a mixed batch of Chinese data pulled
Asian stocks lower, with foreign-led selling and losses in
banking shares sending the Malaysian index to a
more-than-one-week low. 
    Kuala Lumpur's composite index was down 1.2 percent
at 1,665.32, its lowest close since Nov. 2. The top two losers
were Hong Leong Financial Group and AMMB Holdings
, declining more than 3 percent each.
    Foreign investors sold shares for a second trading day worth
a net 274.56 million ringgit ($62.97 million), stock exchange
data showed.
    In Bangkok, investors took quick profits on telecoms shares,
causing a 1.3 percent fall in the country's biggest mobile phone
firm, Advanced Info Service, while second-ranked
Total Access Communication slid 2.8 percent.
    The selling also reflected concerns of a likely
higher-than-expected price at a mobile frequency auction as the
country's telecoms regulator invited bids for two 1800-MHz
frequency licences on Wednesday. 
    Most sharemarkets posted outflows on the day, led by
Indonesia's 614.4 billion rupiah ($45.18 million),
Thomson Reuters data showed.
