SE Asia Stocks-Fall with Asia; Philippine posts biggest drop in 3 months
BANGKOK, Nov 27 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets fell in line with Asia on Friday, with shares in the Philippines posting their biggest single-day drop in more than three months ahead of a three-day weekend while the Thai key stock index hit a near two-month low due to extensive outflows. Chinese shares slumped on Friday, weighing on other Asian stock markets, as a fresh regulatory crackdown and falling industrial profits weighed on market sentiment. The Philippine composite index finished down 1.9 percent, the biggest single-day drop since Aug. 24 and ending the week nearly flat. Foreign investors offloaded shares worth a net 1.44 billion peso ($30.55 million), stock exchange data showed. The Philippine stock market will be closed on Monday for a public holiday. The Thai SET index was down 0.2 percent on the day, sliding 2.2 percent on the week. The Thai bourse said foreign investors sold shares for a fourth successive session, worth a net 419 million baht ($11.69 million). The region ended the week mixed. Singapore and Vietnam extended losses for a third straight week, down 2 percent and 3.6 percent, respectively. Indonesia ended the week nearly flat, while Malaysia rose 1.3 percent.
