JAKARTA, Nov 6 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock
markets edged up on Thursday after key U.S. indexes closed at
record highs on Wednesday, but Indonesian shares continued to
fall on disappointing economic data.
    Advances in U.S. equities overnight helped lift sentiment,
said Muhamad Alfatih, an analyst with Samuel Sekuritas in
Jakarta.
    The Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500
Index both rose 0.6 percent, led by gains in energy and
financial shares, following the Republican Party's election
victory and solid U.S. economic data. 
    The Philippine stock index led the region, rebounding
from a two-day decline, with a 0.4 percent gain. GT Capital
Holdings, a conglomerate group, gained 2.6 percent.  
 
    Thai stocks rose 0.2 percent, with energy company
PTT PCl rising 3.5 percent to its highest in more than
three years, as the company expected to benefit from the
government's plan to raise fuel prices. 
    Indonesian shares extended declines to a second
session, ending 0.6 percent lower, following the country's 5.01
percent GDP growth in the third quarter, its lowest since 2009.
    Among the biggest decliners in Indonesia was PT Bank Rakyat
Indonesia Tbk, the country's second largest bank by
assets, that fell 2.5 percent.
    Coal miner PT Berau Coal Energy Tbk lost 3.2
percent to its lowest since June after Moody's downgraded its
rating and put the company on review for further downgrade.
