SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia at record close in a strong month

BANGKOK, Feb 28 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stocks rose on
Thursday with Indonesia hitting a record close for second
session and the Philippines ending at a new peak as regional
markets rallied after U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke
reaffirmed commitment to strong stimulus. 
    Large caps such as PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk 
and Bank Rakyat Indonesia Tbk led among top performers
in Indonesia, sending Jakarta's Composite Index 1.7
percent higher to an all-time closing high of 4,795.79.
    Indonesia racked up 7.7 percent gain on the month, the
biggest since September 2010, leading among Southeast Asian top
performers in February.
    Philippine main index ended two-day falls, rising 1.6
percent to 6,721.45, its record finish. Manila posted monthly
gain of 7.7 percent, joining Indonesia as the region's top
performers.
    Bangkok's SET index was up 1.6 percent at 1,541.58,
paring a 1.44 percent loss of the past two sessions. Thai SET
index rose to a near 18-1/2 year closing high of 1,546.64 on Feb
20.
