in early trade, recovered to rise as much as 0.7 percent.

hit a record high, while Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

and United Overseas Bank Ltd gained 1.6

sharpest intraday gain in two weeks.

percent to an all-time high on a 43 percent increase in

full-year profit.

Vietnam gained as much as 1.9 percent to a more than

two-week high on its first trading day after a five-day holiday.

Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corp and Vietnam Dairy

and 2.3 percent, respectively.

Shares on the Philippine bourse fell over 1 percent,

and were set to end their longest winning streak since December

percent, while Universal Robina Corp slid 4.3 percent

to a 10-week low ahead of quarterly results.

Telecom company PLDT Inc fell as much as 2.7
