SE Asia Stocks-Mixed; Thai stocks weak after factory output falls

Reuters

BANGKOK, Oct 28 (Reuters) - Malaysian stocks ended slightly

higher on Monday amid optimism about the government's proposed

budget for 2014, while Thai stocks fell for a second session as

weak factory output for September worried investors about the

pace of economic recovery.

Malaysia's main index ended up 0.05 percent at

1,818.39, near a record close of 1,818.93 hit on Oct. 24, with

local institutions buying a net $19 million against selling by

foreign and local retail investors, stock exchange data showed.

Energy-related shares advanced, led by shares of Tenaga

Nasional and Petronas Chemicals Group, while

property shares underperformed after the government

announced measures to cool the sector's surge.

Thai stocks ended down 0.4 percent after investors

sold shares in large caps, including PTT Pcl and Shin

Corp, after the country's factory output fell for a

sixth straight month in September.

Indonesia's key index rose 0.2 percent, led by a 4.6

percent rise in shares of Telekomunikasi Indonesia.

Danareksa rated Telekomunikasi a "buy" after it posted

nine-month earnings in line with the broker's forecast.

The exchange brought in inflows of 51,796 million rupiah

($4.70 million) on the day, Thomson Reuters data showed.
