SE Asia Stocks-Thailand, Indonesia rebound after inflation data

BANGKOK, Oct 1 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stocks

gained on Tuesday, with upbeat inflation data helping lift

sentiment on Thailand and Indonesia, but trading was subdued

across the region with global markets wary of the U.S.

government shutdown.

Thai SET index climbed 1.8 percent as a

lower-than-expected annual inflation rate of 1.42 percent in

September helped ease concerns over inflationary pressure,

supportive for the prospect of corporate earnings, brokers said.

A handful of large-cap stocks recently hit by a

short-selling activity regained some of their recent lost

grounds, with shares in Kasikornbank Pcl and Shin Corp

Pcl leading among gainers.

Indonesia's key index ended up 0.7 percent, rising

1.5 percent earlier after Indonesia said consumer prices fell

0.35 percent in September and released an unexpected trade

surplus for August, its first since March.

Foreign flows to Southeast Asia were mixed.

Indonesia posted 257 million rupiah ($22,200) of net foreign

selling, Thailand recorded 379 million baht ($12.1 million) of

net foreign selling, while Malaysia brought in 60 million

ringgit ($18.4 million) of net foreign buying, Thomson Reuters

and stock exchange data showed.
