SE Asia Stocks-Philippine, Malaysia, Indonesia at all-time high

BANGKOK, Oct 4 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets gained on Thursday, with the Philippine main index posting its second straight record closing high in strong volumes as optimism about domestic growth boosted consumer-related stocks such as SM Investments Corp

.
