SE Asia Stocks-Widodo win boosts Indonesia; Singapore falls on growth worries
21 May 2019
source: reuters.com
    * Indonesia rises up to 1.5%
    * Singapore Q1 GDP hits decade low, cuts 2019 growth outlook
    * Thai Q1 GDP +2.8% y/y, slowest in over 4 years

    By Niyati Shetty
    May 21 (Reuters) - Indonesian shares extended gains on
Tuesday as official counts, released earlier than scheduled,
confirmed the re-election of incumbent President Joko Widodo,
while the Singapore index declined after the country cut its
2019 growth outlook. 
    Indonesian equities  .JKSE  rose as much as 1.5% after the
election commission confirmed unofficial counts, giving
President Widodo, popularly known as Jokowi, a comfortable win
over ex-general Prabowo Subianto.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL4N22W3L0
    The early results could, however, trigger a legal challenge
and potential street protests after the opposition claimed
widespread cheating. 
    Taye Shim, Head of Research at Mirae Asset Sekuritas said a
fundamental question that investors are asking is whether
President Jokowi can deliver reforms during his next five years.
    "President Jokowi has a proven track record of delivering
reforms and at the same time managing politics."
    Financials and material stocks supported the Jakarta index,
with Bank Central Asia Tbk PT  BBCA.JK  adding 2.1%, and PT
Indocement Tunggal Prakarsa Tbk  INTP.JK  gaining 6.2%. 
    Singapore stocks  .STI  declined up to 0.5% after the island
cut its full year growth forecast on Tuesday as official data
showed annual economic growth in the first quarter slipped to
the lowest in nearly a decade.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL4N22X01A
    Gross domestic product expanded 1.2% year-on-year in the
first three months of 2019, below the 1.5% forecast by a Reuters
poll, as manufacturing contracted due to the protracted
Sino-U.S. tariff war. 
    Conglomerate Jardine Matheson Holdings Ltd  JARD.SI  lost as
much as 1.9% and lender DBS Group Holdings Ltd  DBSM.SI  slipped
0.9%.
    Adding to the region's growth worries, Thailand data also
showed the trade-reliant economy grew at its slowest annual pace
in more than four years in the first quarter, mainly due to
softer exports.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nB7N21102J
    However, Mizuho Bank said in a note that it "sees a gradual
pick-up on the back of incoming stimulus and the start of a
series of mega infrastructure projects."
    The Thai bourse  .SETI  gained 0.5% despite the
disappointing data, with oil & gas firm PTT PCL  PTT.BK  rising
0.5%, and Airports of Thailand PCL  AOT.BK  adding 0.4%. 
   Meanwhile, other markets in the region rose as investors took
a breather from last week's sell-off.     
    "Emerging market has been hurt a lot compared to other
markets and I would suspect that this is only a technical
rebound," said Shim. "At the end of the day this is a very
fragile recovery."
    The Philippine index  .PSI  climbed up to 1%, while
Malaysian equities  .KLSE  added 0.6%.
    Vietnam stocks gained for an eighth straight session, buoyed
by financial and real estate sectors.
