Southeast Asia stocks: Falter on trade deal uncertainty, China data

Traders begin work on the first day of 2018 trading at the Philippine Stocks Exchange (PSE), as the benchmark index hits a new record high, in the financial district of Makati city, Metro Manila

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.

This "continuous divergence between CPI and PPI further reaffirms the underlying moderating demand," Mizuho analysts said in a note.

"As the government shows higher degree of tolerance on slower growth, evidenced by the absence of resolute steps from the People's Bank of China in terms of easing measures, growth still faces risk of falling to sub-6% next year", they added.

Leading losses in the region, Thai bourse was 0.6% lower as financial and industrial stocks faltered.

Singapore stocks slipped 0.5%, with financials dominating losses on the benchmark. The city-state has a sizable exposure to China.

United Overseas Bank Ltd fell 0.5%, while DBS Group Holdings Ltd dipped 0.2%.

DBS Group, Southeast Asia's largest lender, reported a jump in quarterly profit but flagged a dull 2020 as it now expects revenue and profit next year to grow in low single digits.

Indonesia's main index fell about 0.4%, pressured by banking and telco stocks. Shares of Bank Rakyat Indonesia (Persero) Tbk PT and Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk PT dropped over 1% each in the session.

Malaysian shares declined ahead of monthly industrial output data, which is expected to grow by 1%, according to analysts at ING.

Palm oil producer Kuala Lumpur Kepong Bhd and lender CIMB Group Holdings Bhd were the top drags on the index as they fell 2.2% and 0.7%, respectively.

Elsewhere, Vietnam stocks traded sideways.
