SE Asia Stocks-End off highs; commodities outperform after Fed stimulus

BANGKOK, Sept 17 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stocks
ended slightly higher on Monday, paring earlier gains, but
demand for commodities stocks such as Indonesia's Bumi Resources
and Thailand's PTTEP continued as a new round of U.S. monetary
stimulus bolstered cyclical stocks.
    Market investors appeared cautious on the outlook for the
global economy and the euro zone crisis, traders said, prompting
players to cash in on large-caps which rallied in the previous
session following the U.S. economic stimulus news.
    Thailand's benchmark SET index edged up 0.19 percent
at 1,278.54, the highest close since June 1996, led by a 4.6
percent jump in energy explorer PTT Exploration and Production
Pcl.
    In Jakarta, the late reversal sent the main index 
down 0.04 percent, with finance index off 0.08
percent. But coal miners outperformed, including Bumi Resources
, which was up 2.4 percent.
    Singapore's Straits Times Index ended up 0.3
percent at a one-month closing high of 3,078.72. Palm oil
producer Wilmar International Ltd gained 1.5 percent
but DBS Group Holdings fell 0.6 percent after Friday's
0.7 percent gain.
