Nov 24 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets struggled
and ended mixed on Tuesday, as a possible U.S. interest rate
hike next month weighed on investor sentiment.
    Singapore shares gained 0.7 percent, Malaysia added
0.4 percent, closing at its highest since Nov. 9. 
    The Jakarta Composite Index added 0.1 percent,
although foreign investors sold Indonesian shares worth of $23.8
million.
    Vietnam's benchmark VN Index underperformed the
region and fell 1 percent to hit a more than one-month low,
dragged down by 3.2 percent loss in Vinamilk. 
    Thai shares fell 0.7 percent, led by
telecommunications stocks after Fitch Ratings agency said Thai
telecommunications industry will remain under pressure next
year. 
    Advanced Info Service Pcl (AIS), Thailand's
largest mobile operator, fell 1.9 percent, while Thailand's
largest full-service telecommunications company True Corp
 lost 4.4 percent.
