* Thailand leads declines * Singapore banks cautious about growth outlook * Vietnam little changed By Arundhati Dutta Feb 21 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Friday, as the rapid spread of the coronavirus outside mainland China and its impact on Asia's economies dulled the appeal of risk assets. Japan and Singapore are on the brink of recession and South Korea on Friday said its exports to China slumped in the first 20 days of February as the outbreak upends global supply chains. "Data suggests that a pickup in activity is still elusive, which could have negative implications on global growth," DBS Group Research said in a note.
* China reports 5,000 new virus cases, ship disembarks in Cambodia * The Philippine index leads declines, down up to 0.7% * Oil prices set for first weekly gain in six, lift Thai index * Singapore set for biggest weekly gain in over 3 months By Arundhati Dutta Feb 14 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets were subdued on Friday as renewed doubts about the scale of coronavirus outbreak spooked investors, while the Thai index rose with its prominent energy sector gaining as oil prices extended their week-old recovery. Financial markets have hinged on virus headlines through the week and rallied at any sign of infections easing.
* Singapore leads gainers, up as much as 1.1% * Malaysia slips; Q4 GDP growth at decade low * Indonesia down 0.8%, hits over 1-week low By Arundhati Dutta Feb 12 (Reuters) - Singapore and Thailand stock markets rose on Wednesday on hopes that the worst of the coronavirus outbreak might be over, while Malaysia shares declined as economic growth in the fourth quarter slowed to a decade-low. "As investors continue to assess the economic damage the new coronavirus, the hopes of greater policy support by central banks are on the rise," economists at ING said in a note.
* Trading down as week-long Lunar New Year holiday begins * Losses in utility, energy sectors hurt Thai stocks * Singapore index marks biggest weekly drop since October By Soumyajit Saha Jan 24 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended lower on Friday as concerns over an escalating coronavirus outbreak in China - the region's biggest trading partner - bruised risk sentiment and as the week-long Lunar New Year holiday kicked off. China on Friday stepped up measures to contain the virus that had killed 25 people and infected more than 800, with public transport suspensions in 10 cities. The World Health Organisation (WHO) declared an health emergency for China but stopped short of declaring an international health emergency, even as millions geared up for travel during the Chinese New Year week that could accelerate the contagion's spread.
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that Phase 1 of trade deal with China would be signed on Jan. 15. Singapore shares hit their highest closing level in over six weeks, as the city-state's fourth-quarter GDP data came in line with expectations and firmed hopes for a modest recovery in 2020. The two sectors have been strained since Philippines' water regulator cancelled the extension of concession deals with the country's two largest utilities Manila Water Co Inc and Maynilad Water Services after pressure from President Rodrigo Duterte.
* Thailand on pace to snap seven sessions of losses * Indonesia hits near 1-mth high * Consumer, utility stocks help Malaysia By Soumyajit Saha Dec 6 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets ticked higher on Friday, as risk sentiment was lifted by positive comments from Washington on the ongoing trade talks with Beijing. U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday the talks were "moving right along", even as the two sides remained at loggerheads over rolling back existing tariffs and other issues such as the protests in Hong Kong. Thai stocks were set to snap seven sessions of losses, helped by gains in the industrial and energy sectors, but were still on track to lose over 1% for the week.
* Vietnamese shares hit near-three-week closing low * Thai energy stocks drag on index as oil prices tumble * Malaysia Oct inflation rises 1.1%, above Reuters forecast By Arundhati Dutta Nov 20 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian markets slipped on Wednesday on fears that strained Sino-U.S. relations could derail trade negotiations after U.S President Donald Trump threatened fresh tariffs and the U.S. Senate passed a bill backing Hong Kong protesters. President Trump on Tuesday said that tariffs on Chinese imports would be increased if the two nations fail to reach a trade deal.
* Singapore top loser, falls most in one month * Indonesia rises as central bank sees improved Q4 GDP * Philippines rises for fifth consecutive week By Sameer Manekar Nov 8 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian markets closed lower on Friday, as a report on internal opposition in Washington to tariff rollback on Chinese goods trumped optimism over the possibility of an interim Sino-U.S. trade deal. Malaysia's benchmark index inched up to close at over two-month high.
* Washington plans partial trade deal with Beijing at Chile summit * Indonesia set to post biggest weekly gain in nearly 5 months * Singapore Exchange rises 7.5% after strong Q1 results By Sameer Manekar Oct 25 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets traded in the red on Friday as uncertainty over the Sino-U.S. trade deal was revived ahead of fresh rounds of negotiations, while concerns about global economic slowdown continued to rattle confidence. Investors are also nervous ahead of a summit in Chile where U.S. President Donald Trump hopes to finalise a partial trade deal with China's Xi Jinping. Also dampening sentiment, a Reuters poll of economists found that the recent truce in the U.S.-China trade dispute is not an economic turning point and has failed to reduce a significant risk that the world's biggest economy could slip into recession in the next two years.
* U.S. official said tariffs on Chinese goods could be withdrawn * Singapore's Keppel Corp surges 17.1% on Temasek offer * Indonesia set to snap seven consecutive sessions of gains By Sameer Manekar Oct 22 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets traded in positive territory on Tuesday, with Singapore leading gains, as signs of progress in the Sino-U.S. trade negotiations whetted appetite and encouraged investors to resume their bets. U.S. President Donald Trump sounded upbeat on a China deal on Monday, while White House adviser Larry Kudlow said tariffs on Chinese goods scheduled for December could be withdrawn if talks go well.
* High-level Sino-U.S. trade talks to begin on Thursday * The Philippines' Aug trade deficit narrows on-month * Energy and banking sectors dent Thailand index By Soumyajit Saha Oct 10 (Reuters) - Philippine stocks rose in low volumes, while most other Southeast Asian markets held steady on Thursday, as investors remained cautious as neither Washington nor Beijing had shown signs of giving ground at the trade negotiations. U.S. S&P500 mini futures tumbled after media reports cited that no progress was made in the deputy-level trade talks, and that the Chinese delegation was planning to leave Washington on Thursday after just one day of high-level talks, instead of Friday as originally planned. Washington is weighing a currency pact with China as part of a partial deal that could see a planned tariff hike next week being suspended, Bloomberg reported citing sources familiar with the talks.
Thailand's Gulf Energy Development Pcl and state-owned PTT Pcl will build a 40.9 billion baht ($1.3 billion) gas terminal and port on the country's east coast, the Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand (IEAT) said on Tuesday. The government says its investment partnership with the Gulf MPT LNG Terminal Company Limited - a joint venture between a subsidiary of Gulf Energy with a 70% stake and a unit of PTT with a 30% stake - will bring more investment to the industrial east and boost economic growth. The project will include the design and construction of the port and a liquefied natural gas terminal that will have an annual capacity of at least 5 million metric tons per year in the first phase and up to 10.8 million tons per year at a later stage, Gulf Energy said on Tuesday.
* Federal Reserve will conclude two-day meet later in the day * Malaysia at 1-week low, dragged by consumer stocks * Thai index leads declines as energy stocks tumble By Anushka Trivedi Sept 18 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets were tepid on Wednesday amid cautious mood as investors awaited a widely expected interest rate cut by the U.S. Federal Reserve, while a slew of regional central bank meetings kept a lid on risk appetite. The U.S. central bank will conclude a two-day policy review on Wednesday, with markets mostly pricing in a quarter-point cut, but a show of strong manufacturing output for August on Tuesday forced investors to walk back some of their dovish ambitions. Federal funds futures implied late on Tuesday that traders saw about a 51% chance of Fed easing the key borrowing costs.
