BANGKOK, Feb 14 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets

intraday record as reports of a landslide hit mining shares and
Indonesia closing at a record high, led by PT Bumi Resources Tbk
.
    The Philippine main index ended 0.22 percent down at
6,513.41, hitting a peak of 6,542.51 at one point, with shares

Electric Co and Ayala Corp among the gainers.
The Philippines set a record close for the fourth time this
month on Wednesday as foreigners led buyers.
    Manila saw net foreign buying of $160 million this month to
Wednesday, trailing Indonesia's month-to-date net foreign buying
of $488 million and Malaysia's $195 million.
    Jakarta's Composite Index rose 0.4 percent to
4,588.67, breaching Wednesday's 4,571.57 record finish. Coal
exporter Bumi surged 26.4 percent after it requested a takeover
panel to expedite inquiry into the creation of parent coal miner
Bumi.

foreign selling of $373 million this month. The benchmark SET
index climbed 0.8 percent to a fresh 18-year closing
