BANGKOK, Feb 5 (Reuters) - The Philippine main index slipped
on Thursday from the previous session's record closing high,
while energy shares underperformed in Southeast Asia as
investors cashed in for quick gains amid oil market volatility.
    Oil prices fell on Thursday, extending big losses logged in
the previous session as record high inventories in the United
States coupled with concern over global demand cut short a
four-day rally. 
    The Philippine composite index ended down 0.5 percent
at 7,674.24. It hit a record closing high of 7,716.06 on
    Energy Development Corp and First Gen Corp

    In the region, losers and actively-traded stocks included 
Singapore's Keppel Corp, Malaysia's Tenaga Nasional
Bhd, Thailand's PTT Exploration and Production Pcl
 and Indonesia's Perusahaan Gas Negara.
    In Jakarta, palm oil shares outperformed the broader market
, led by a 3.5 percent jump in Astra Agro Lestari
    Malaysian palm oil climbed almost 5 percent on Thursday,
buoyed by hopes that top producer Indonesia's plan to increase
biodiesel subsidies would make blending profitable.
