BANGKOK, June 16 (Reuters) - Thai shares touched near
eight-month highs on Monday as strong crude prices boosted
stocks of energy explorer PTT Exploration and Production
, while Indonesian shares fell to their lowest in one
week due to foreign-led selling in large caps.
    Bangkok's SET index closed up 1.09 percent at
1,471.85, the highest since Oct. 18. PTT Exploration shares
jumped 4.1 percent, their best gain since December and its
parent firm PTT was up 2.1 percent.
    "The market today was about rotational plays, mainly into
energy sector. PTTEP was strong because it is one of the best
direct play into the strong crude oil market," said Pichai
Lertsupongkij, a senior analyst of Thanachart Securities.
    Jakarta's composite index was down 0.8 percent at
4,885.46, the lowest close since June 9.
    Shares of top four firms by market value dropped after
foreign-led selling, including Astra International,
Bank Central Asia, Bank Rakyat Indonesia and
Telkom Indonesia, according to Thomson Reuters data.
    In Manila, large cap telecommunications shares fell due to
outflows, stock exchange data showed.
    Shares of Alliance Global dropped 2.1 percent after
a net foreign selling of 247 million peso ($5.6 million) and
Philippine Long Distance Telephone eased 0.6 percent as
foreign investors sold a net 148 million peso ($3.4 million).
