SE Asia Stocks-Most gain on revival of trade hopes; Philippines dips on profit-taking
24 July 2019
source: reuters.com
    * Vietnam index extend gains to its highest in over three
months
    * Financials, Jollibee Foods drag Philippine stocks lower

    By Anushka Trivedi
    July 24 (Reuters) - Philippine shares slipped on Wednesday
on profit-booking after a recent rally in financials, while most
other Southeast Asian stock markets posted modest gains as
reports of headway in the protracted Sino-U.S. trade
negotiations hoisted risk sentiment.
    White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow on Tuesday called
it a good sign that top U.S. officials would be travelling to
China to discuss reviving stalled trade talks, and said he
expected Beijing to start buying U.S. agriculture products soon.
 urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL2N24O164     
    Sentiment was also lifted by the upcoming crucial central
bank meetings, where the European Central Bank is expected to at
least offer a nod to easier policy on Thursday, whereas a
quarter-point cut by the U.S. Federal Reserve is all but
confirmed.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL4N24H3H7 
    "Asia equity markets are feasting on the positive
after-effects from better-than-expected U.S. earnings and the
constructive vibe around the resumption of trade talks, while
the dovish central bank scrim is providing the icing on the
cake," Stephen Innes, Managing Partner at VanguardMarkets.com
said.
    Singapore shares  .STI , which are among the most vulnerable
to trade war developments in the region, extended gains to edge
up 0.2%.
    The city-state also received a boost from prospects of an
easing monetary policy by its central bank after June's
inflation data came in at a more than two-year low.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL4N24O18O
    Shares of palm oil producer Golden-Agri Resources Ltd
 GAGR.SI  scaled 3.5%, while Hutchison Port Holdings Trust
 HPHT.SI  rose 2.3%.
    Vietnam's benchmark index  .VNI  extended gains to its
highest in more than three months, underpinned by financials.
    Malaysian stocks  .KLSE  were largely unchanged, while
government data showed June consumer prices rose at their
fastest pace in more than a year.  P8N1QI02Q  
    Meanwhile, Philippine stocks  .PSI  shed 0.4%, with
financial stocks dragging the benchmark index lower.
    With the country's top three banks being the biggest
laggards in the index, Miguel Ong, a research analyst with AP
Securities said it could be more of profit-taking as financial
stocks led the sector rally in the last couple of sessions.
    Bank of the Philippine Islands  BPI.PS  and biggest lender
by market value BDO Unibank Inc  BDO.PS  slipped 1.7% and 1.8%,
respectively, while Jollibee Foods Inc  JFC.PS  dropped 2.4%. 
    Sentiment towards Jollibee stock was wavering as the Asian
fast-food giant is "expected to perform weakly in the second
quarter, especially the operations of Smashburger - the business
they invested on and acquired is expected to be a drag," Ong
added.
