* Thailand down 0.9%, top loser * Singapore unveils $4.5 bln package * Vietnam falls for third session By Arundhati Dutta Feb 18 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Tuesday, after Apple Inc said it was unlikely to meet its March-quarter sales guidance as the coronavirus outbreak slowed production and weakened demand in China. Shares in Thailand fell 0.9%, even after the central bank governor said the government's support measures and the passage of a delayed budget bill would help ease the economic blow from the coronavirus. Singapore also announced financial packages worth around $4.5 billion to help contain the outbreak and weather its economic impact.

Chinese province Hubei, which is at the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak, reported a record 242 deaths and thousands more cases on Thursday under a new diagnostic method, suggesting a much bigger crisis facing China and the world. The surge in the number of infections comes a day after global markets had rallied after China's senior medical advisor said the epidemic would be over by April.

"Most investors are still assessing its impact on economic growth," he said, adding that Thailand, Cambodia and Hong Kong would be hit as the virus is likely to affect 50% of outgoing Chinese tourists.

* Indonesia c.bank keeps policy rates on hold * Philippines snaps two sessions of gains * Thailand gains for second straight day Dec 19 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian markets fell on Thursday, with Philippines leading declines, as investors booked profits ahead of the holiday season, and as lack of additional details on the interim Sino-U.S. trade deal continued to weigh on sentiment. A spokesman at the Chinese commerce ministry said China and U.S. trade teams are in close communication, but there is no specific information on the deal to disclose currently.
* Malaysia rises on Petronas Gas boost * Philippines falls as cenbank holds key policy rate * Singapore rises on bluechip financials By Arundhati Dutta Dec 12 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian markets rose on Thursday, with Thailand snapping a 10-day losing streak and leading gains, after the U.S. Federal Reserve indicated there would be no change in rate settings in the near future. The Fed also projected a favourable outlook for the U.S. economy at its last policy meeting of the year on Wednesday. Elsewhere, China said it was in close communication with the United States, while President Donald Trump is expected to meet with top advisers to decide whether to go ahead with planned Dec. 15 tariffs.

Vietnam stocks led the declines in the region, dragged by consumer stocks.
* China exports in Nov shrank for fourth straight month * Thailand set for ninth straight session of falls * Singapore, Indonesia little changed By Arundhati Dutta Dec 9 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian markets were subdued on Monday as weak export data from China, the region's biggest trading partner, signalled weakness for the broader Asian economy, offsetting positive Wall Street clues following solid U.S. jobs print. Investor sentiment was hit after data projected that China exports in November shrank for the fourth straight month, implying that the trade war with the United States was taking a toll on the world's second-largest economy. Asian peers caught some of Wall Street's momentum after data showed that U.S. job growth increased by the most in 10 months in November.
* Indonesia set to snap six-day losing streak * Thailand trade data due later in the day * Singapore set for worst week in nearly 2 months By Arundhati Dutta Nov 29 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian markets fell in low-volume trade on Friday as investors were worried that a new U.S. bill backing protesters in Chinese-ruled Hong Kong may cloud trade negotiations between two of the world's leading economies.

* Philippines bounces back, up over 1% * Indonesia up after 4 sessions of losses * Thailand rolls out new stimulus measures By Arundhati Dutta Nov 27 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets edged higher on Wednesday, with Philippines leading the pack, after U.S. President Donald Trump said the United States and China were close to agreement on the first phase of a trade deal.

The Singapore benchmark, which had climbed as much as 0.6% in early trade, lost ground and closed sightly lower after data showed that the city-state's core inflation rate in October had eased to an over three-year low.. Philippines stocks tumbled 0.7% and hit an over six-week low, with big caps such as Ayala Land Inc and Manila Electric Company dragging the index.

Terming the bills "a wild card" for the market, OCBC Treasury Research said in a note that China's reaction may hold the key to investor sentiment, given there is no detailed retaliation plan yet.
* China's Oct industrial output grew slower than expected * Philippine shares at near 4-week low * Thai cenbank to lower growth outlook for 2019 & 2020 By Anushka Trivedi Nov 14 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets declined on Thursday, as dismal economic print from China and rising uncertainty over a highly-anticipated Sino-U.S. trade deal weighed on risk sentiment. Indonesian stocks dropped the most in the region after data showed China's industrial output grew significantly slower than expected in October, reinforcing views that long-drawn trade war with United States is taking a toll on the world's second-largest economy. "The latest news added to the sense that the path to any trade deal remains riddled with uncertainties and contributed to the relatively lower market risk appetite," OCBC analysts said in a note.
* China Oct PPI falls most in 3-yrs * Thai shares lead losses * Singapore's DBS Group flags weaker 2020 By Anushka Trivedi Nov 11 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets edged lower on Monday as uncertainty over whether the United States and China would end their bruising trade war lingered, while data from Beijing brought slowdown fears to the fore. U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday contrasted reports of officials from U.S. and China agreeing to rollback existing tariffs by saying he had not agreed to such a deal, which sparked fresh doubts over whether the two sides would find a segue in their damaging tariff spat. Meanwhile, data showed that China's producer prices, a key indicator of corporate profitability, fell the most in more than three years in October, as the manufacturing sector weakened while consumer prices grew at their fastest pace in about eight years.

China's commerce ministry said Washington and Beijing must simultaneously cancel some duties on each others' goods for the two sides to reach a "phase one" trade deal. "The trade war started with tariffs, and should end with the cancellation of tariffs," Gao Feng, a commerce ministry spokesman, told reporters without specifying a timetable.
* Vietnam surges as real estate stocks shine * Indonesian stocks the only weekly loser * Philippine markets closed for holiday By Anushka Trivedi Nov 1 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets retreated on Friday, as investors fled risky assets after China expressed doubts over signing a comprehensive trade deal with the United States, while Vietnam surged buoyed by gains in real estate shares. A Bloomberg report on Thursday said that Chinese officials told visitors to Beijing that it will not budge on the thorniest issues and is concerned about the risk that U.S. President Donald Trump could back out of the interim deal. Malaysian shares followed suit to slip 0.3% amid broad-based losses.
