SE Asia Stocks-Banking, realty stocks help Singapore gain 1%

    * Financial, industrial stocks drag down Philippines
    * Thai Sept headline CPI rises 0.32% y/y, lags forecast

    Oct 1 (Reuters) - Singapore shares rose 1% on
Tuesday, helped by banking and real estate stocks, while most
other Southeast Asian markets were subdued in the absence of
fresh developments on the Sino-U.S. trade war front and as
Chinese markets were closed for holidays.
    Flash estimate from Singapore's Urban Redevelopment

    Lender DBS Group Holdings advanced 1.2%, while
real estate developer CapitaLand Ltd gained 1.1%.

PTT PCL shedding 0.5%, while convenience store operator
CP All PCL lost 0.9%.
    Meanwhile, the annual headline consumer price index rose
0.32% in September year-on-year, less than expected and against
August's 0.52%.
    September's headline inflation was the lowest level since
January and stayed below the Bank of Thailand's 1%-4% target
range for a fourth straight month.    
    Philippine shares fell, dragged by financials and
industrials. Property developer SM Prime Holdings
declined 1.1%, while lender Bank of the Philippine Islands
 lost 1.6%.
    Indonesian stocks inched lower ahead of September
inflation data due later in the day. A Reuters poll forecast the
