SE Asia Stocks - Thai index rebounds, but fall in CP All weighs

jueves 3 de diciembre de 2015 07:31 GYT
 

BANGKOK, Dec 3 (Reuters) - Thailand's benchmark index ended
marginally higher on Thursday weighed down by selloffs in shares
of CP All, while most others in Southeast Asia were
range-bound ahead of the European Central Bank's policy
decision.
    Bangkok's SET index was up 0.09 percent, reversing 
earlier falls to the lowest since Aug. 26. Recently-battered
large-caps such as Advanced Info Service and Siam
Cement led the rebound.
    Shares of retailer CP All dropped more than 5 percent, the
worst single-day slide since 2013.
    Investors unloaded the stock after the country's market
regulator said on Wednesday it had fined top executives at two
of the country's biggest firms -- CP All and telecoms firm True
Corporation for insider trading. 
    True Corp shares eased 0.6 percent.
    Asian stocks slipped and the dollar advanced on Thursday
after hawkish comments from Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen
reinforced the case for an interest rate hike later this month.
    The ECB is expected to ease policy further on Thursday,
delivering a cocktail of measures that could include a deposit
rate cut and changes to its asset-buying programme.
