SE Asia Stocks-Thailand hits two-week high, others subdued

April 19 (Reuters) - Thai stocks surged to a two-week high
on Thursday led by banking shares but most other stock markets
in the region ended flat or lower amid renewed concern over the
debt crisis in the euro zone.	
    Foreign inflow of $43.35 million also helped boost sentiment
on the Thai bourse with the jumping 1.5 percent to its
highest since April 4.  Both Siam Commercial Bank PCL 
and Kasikornbank PCL were among the big gainers.	
    But stocks in Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia and Vietnam
fell. The Philippines, which hit a record high on
Wednesday, edged down 0.3 percent on profit taking, while
Indonesia finished 0.1 percent weaker with a foreign
outflow of $12.3 million.	
    Malaysia edged down 0.1 percent, but foreign
investors bought a net 205.32 million Malaysian ringgit ($66.99
million) worth shares from Kuala Lumpur. Vietnam, the
region's smallest market fell 1.1 percent. 	
    But Singapore ended 0.3 percent higher to highest
level since April 3.
