SE Asia Stocks-Mixed; Spain debt, China stimulus weigh

May 30 (Reuters) - Thailand's stock market ended Wednesday
1.3 percent weaker, while other southeast Asian markets closed
mixed as fears over Spain's bank crisis and the possibility of
China taking a cautious stance on economic stimulus measures
damped investor appetite for risky assets. 	
    Concerns over Spain's borrowing costs rising to
unsustainable levels hit hopes for the recovery of the euro
zone. 	
    Thailand snapped a four-session rising streak, but  
  Bangkok-based Viwat Techapoonphol, senior strategist of Tisco
Securities, said the fall would help boost buying in the Bangkok
market, where foreigners have been net sellers only for one
month so far this year. 	
    "There will be buying opportunities, especially for local
investors, in this market at the lower prices. If you look at
the domestic economy in the second half, I think it's a good
story," Techapoonphol said.	
    Shares in Singapore lost 0.6 percent, and the
Philippines benchmark edged down 0.1 percent. 	
    Indonesian stocks, recovering from early losses,
closed steady with foreign inflows of $12.36 million, while
Malaysian shares gained 0.6 percent with net foreign
buying of $29.80 million and Vietnam's benchmark added
0.9 percent.
