SE Asia Stocks-Most fall; Thai telecoms shares weak

jueves 26 de noviembre de 2015 06:43 GYT

BANGKOK, Nov 26 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock
markets fell on Thursday as investors cut risk holdings ahead of
a public holiday in the United States, with late selling in
telecoms shares sending the Thai benchmark to a near two-month
closing low.
    Thailand's key SET index declined 1.1 percent to its
lowest close since Oct. 5. Shares of mobile phone firm Advanced
Info Service dropped 3.2 percent and True
Corporation shed 1.8 percent, among actively traded.
    Concerns about recent high bidding price for 4G mobile
licences have kept telecoms shares under selling pressure,
brokers said.  
    Investors slowed their investments in most markets ahead of
the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, according to brokers.
U.S. markets will be closed on Thursday and most of Friday
    Malaysia finished slightly lower after five sessions
of gains. Vietnam ended down 0.9 percent as investors
sold blue chips after their recent gains. 
    Indonesia and the Philippines both posted
modest gains, with foreigners buying shares worth a net 350
billion rupiah ($25.50 million) and 145 million peso ($3.08
million), respectively, Thomson Reuters and stock exchange data
