SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia climbs on Widodo election win; Singapore falls on growth forecast cut
21 May 2019
source: reuters.com
    * Singapore hits lowest closing level since March 25
    * Thai customs-cleared trade data due Wednesday
    * Vietnam snaps 7 straight sessions of gains

    By Niyati Shetty
    May 21 (Reuters) - Indonesian equities ended higher on
Tuesday as investors cheered incumbent President Joko Widodo's
election win, while Singapore stocks hit a 2-month closing low
on grim growth outlook. 
    The Jakarta index  .JKSE  extended gains for a second
session, rising 0.8%, boosted by financial and material sectors.
    Bank Central Asia Tbk PT  BBCA.JK  and PT Indah Kiat Pulp &
Paper Tbk  INKP.JK  rose 1.5% and 7.7%, respectively. 
    Official election results of the world's third-largest
democracy confirmed unofficial counts that had predicted
Widodo's victory over rival Prabowo Subianto.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL4N22W3L0
    The opposition, however, has refused to concede defeat after
claiming widespread cheating. 
    The index of the country's 45 most-liquid stocks  .JKLQ45 
gained 0.9%. 
    Meanwhile, Singapore stocks  .STI  declined 0.7% as the
country downgraded its 2019 growth forecast after data released
earlier in the day showed economic growth in the first quarter
slipped to the lowest in nearly a decade.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL4N22X01A
    Policymakers cut annual growth outlook to 1.5%-2.5% from
1.5%-3.5% previously. 
    DBS Bank in a note said that while they expect to see
gradual improvement going forward, they note that "the downside
risk has heightened and the new set of figures has also shed
more light on the underlying weakness of the economy."
    Adding to the region's growth concerns, data from Thailand
showed the country's economy grew at its slowest pace in more
than four years in the first three months of the year, owing to
a drop in exports and public investment.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL3N22M1LW
    Thai stocks  .SETI  ended slightly higher, supported by
gains in financial and communication stocks. 
    Siam Commercial Bank PCL  SCB.BK  advanced 2.1%, while
Advanced Info Service PCL  ADVANC.BK  rose 1.6%.
    Investors also await Thailand's customs-cleared trade data
due on Wednesday. According to a Reuters poll, annual exports in
April may have contracted 2.5% after decreasing 4.88% in the
previous month.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL4N22X1EU
    Elsewhere, Philippine shares  .PSI  climbed 0.8%, extending
gains for a third session, buoyed by industrials and
communication services stocks. 
    Conglomerate SM Investments Corp  SM.PS  rose 2% and telecom
firm PLDT Inc  TEL.PS  added 2.6%.     
    The Vietnam index  .VNI  snapped seven straight sessions of
gains to end marginally lower on Tuesday.
