    STOCKS AND FACTORS TO WATCH
    
    -- Krung Thai Bank Pcl 
    Thailand's second-largest lender by assets reported a 13.5
percent drop in quarterly net profit on Tuesday, mainly due to
higher provisions, which offset a rise in loans to business and
retail clients plus higher fee income. 
    
    -- True Corp Pcl 
    The telecommunications group said it aims to raise at least
$2.25 billion by listing an infrastructure fund to help pay down
debt, in what would be Asia-Pacific's biggest initial public
offering so far this year.
