SE Asia Stocks -Plantation stocks lift Malaysia, Indonesia

martes 17 de junio de 2014 06:42 GYT

BANGKOK, June 17 (Reuters) - Shares in Malaysia and
Indonesia eked out gains on Tuesday as stronger palm oil prices
lifted plantation stocks while losses in Thailand's top telecoms
due to a suspension of an auction of fourth-generation mobile
licences weighed on the broader market.
    Kuala Lumpur's composite index ended up 0.2 percent,
with shares of Sime Darby at their highest since June
5. Jakarta's composite index rose 0.5 percent, ending
three days of losses, with shares of Astra Agro Lestari
 among gainers.
    Malaysian palm oil futures stretched gains into a fourth
session, lifted by firm crude oil prices and concerns that the
onset of dry weather could curb palm yields. 
    Bangkok's SET index finished a tad lower, weighed by
losses in shares of top mobile phone operator Advanced Info
Service and no. 2 operator Total Access
    Thailand's telecommunications regulator said that it has
suspended temporarily an auction of 4G mobile licences as more
time is needed to work out the details of the process, as well
as to ensure transparency. 
    The Philippine main index fell for a third session,
ending down 0.8 percent at its lowest level since May 30, as
large caps, including Ayala Land and Philippine Long
Distance Telephone, fell amid foreign outflows.
    The Philippine bourse said foreign investors sold shares
worth a net 314.6 million pesos ($7.17 million).
