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.
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.
