SE Asia Stocks-Mixed; Philippines near record high ahead of inflation data 
04 March 2015 17
source: mson Reuters
    JAKARTA, March 4 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets 
traded mixed on Wednesday as stocks in the Philippines rose on 
hopes of easing inflation while Indonesian shares were down 
after touching a fresh intraday record on Tuesday.  
    The Philippines' main stock index  <.PSI>  closed 0.9 percent 
higher on Wednesday, its biggest single-day gain in a month. 
    The index was supported by property stocks such as Ayala 
Land Inc  <ALI.PS> , which gained 4 percent and Robinsons Land 
Corp  <RLC.PS>  which rose 2.8 percent. 
    Some investors are expecting inflation to ease, said Astro 
del Castillo, managing director of First Grade Finance Inc, an 
investment house in Manila. Philippines' February inflation data 
will be out on Thursday. 
    "Interest rates will be flat for the rest of the year, which 
is good for the property sector," del Castillo said. 
    The Vietnam market  <.VNI>  closed at its highest since Nov. 
17 on solid inflows into blue-chips from both foreign and 
domestic investors.  ID:nL4N0W62W1  
    The Indonesian main stock index  <.JKSE>  fell 0.5 percent 
after touching a new intraday high on Tuesday at 5,499.77. 
    Indonesian state-controlled coal miner PT Bukit Asam Tbk 
 <PTBA.JK>  lost 2 percent after reporting lower 2014 profit, 
erasing some of its 4.3 percent gain in the past three days. 
    Singapore  <.FTSTI>  closed 0.2 percent lower, while Malaysia 
 <.KLSE>  rose 0.2 percent. The Thai stock market  <.SETI>  is 
closed for a public holiday on Wednesday.
