BANGKOK, Aug 4 (Reuters) - Stocks in Thailand climbed to a
near one-week high on Monday amid foreign-led buying and gains
in large caps such as PTT and Bangkok Bank 
while Indonesia recouped early loss as investors awaited second
quarter economic data.
    Bangkok's SET index was up 1.3 percent at 1,519.38,
the highest close since July 30.
    Foreign investors bought shares worth a net 1.1 billion baht
($34.2 million) after four straight days of net selling valued a
combined 5 billion baht ($155.4 million), Thomson Reuters data
    Jakarta's Composite Index closed up 0.6 percent
after a choppy session. It slipped at one point after data
showed Indonesia's trade balance swung back into a deficit in
April-June after a surplus in the first quarter. 
    Indonesia on Tuesday will report second-quarter economic
growth, which is expected to rebound from the slowest pace in
four years, thanks to increased spending linked to the country's
presidential election. 
    Most others in Southeast Asia notched up gains as shares
with strong quarterly results outperformed including Singapore's
Sembcorp Marine and Philippine property developer SM
Prime Holdings.
