SE Asia Stocks-Most fall; Singapore drags on weak export data
17 October 2019
source: reuters.com
    * Singapore non-oil domestic exports contract for 7th month
    * Indonesia gains for fifth straight day 
    * Thailand snaps three-day winning streak

    By Sameer Manekar
    Oct 17 (Reuters) - Singapore's shares fell on Thursday after
the city-state reported dismal export figures, while most
Southeast Asian stock markets slipped as investors awaited more
details on the first phase of the Sino-U.S. trade deal. 
    China's commerce ministry said that the country hoped to
reach a phased agreement with the United States over trade as
early as possible, and make progress on cancelling tariffs on
each others' goods.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL3N272248
    However, news of the first phase of the deal last week has
failed to yield any concrete details so far, while officials
from both sides have also warned that much more work needed to
be done before an accord could be agreed. 
    Singapore's index  .STI  fell as much as 0.7% during the
day, marking its worst session in more than a week. It ended
0.3% lower. Industrial stocks accounted for most of the losses
on the local benchmark index, with Jardine Strategic Holdings
 JSH.SI  shedding 1.5%. 
    Singapore's non-oil domestic exports (NODX) shrank for a
seventh consecutive month in September owing to a slump in
electronics shipments, a key driver of growth, data released
earlier in the day showed.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL3N27206A
    "With year-to-date NODX growth contraction already averaging
close to 10% yoy, the full-year 2019 NODX growth may potentially
mark the worst NODX contraction since 2009 post-GFC (global
financial crisis)," OCBC said in a note. 
    Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong also said the
city-state's economy would be lucky if GDP growth is above zero
this year as it faces uncertain times due to the Sino-U.S. trade
war.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL3N2713D6
    Among other Southeast Asian markets, Vietnam stocks  .VNI 
dropped to its lowest level in two weeks, dented by losses in
the real estate and financial sectors. 
    Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Foreign Trade of Viet Nam
 VCB.HM  and real estate developer Vingroup JSC  VIC.HM  lost
1.1% and 0.9%, respectively.
    The Thai benchmark  .SETI  snapped a three-day gaining
streak, weighed down by energy stocks. PTT Pcl  PTT.BK , the
country's largest energy firm and PTT Exploration and Production
Pcl  PTTEP.BK  slipped 1.7% each. 
    Meanwhile, Philippine stocks  .PSI  hit their highest level
in more than four weeks, buoyed by gains in the financial
sector. Metropolitan Bank and Trust Co  MBT.PS  and Bank of
Philippine Islands  BPI.PS  rose 1.2% and 1.1%, respectively.
    Indonesia stocks  .JKSE  extended gains for a fifth straight
day, with consumer shares providing the biggest boost to the
local benchmark index.
