SE Asia Stocks-Most edge up in bearish week; commodities rebound

BANGKOK, Oct 12 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stocks posted small gains on Friday as large caps and stocks such as Wilmar International

and Aboitiz Power Corp

regained some lost ground, but the region remained wary of a slowing global economy.

Singapore's Straits Times Index

edged up 0.3 percent after four sessions of losses as commodities rebounded after a drop earlier in the week. The index was down 2.13 percent on the week, its worst weekly loss since May and Southeast Asia's worst performing market.

The Philippine index

closed up 0.3 percent at 5,369.72, after having fallen at one point to its lowest in more than one week. It ended the week down 1.3 percent, after two successive weeks of gains.

Among weak spots, Malaysia eased 0.13 percent on Friday, down 0.4 percent on the week. Foreign investors sold shares worth 88.5 million ringgit ($28.86 million) during the session while local institutions were net buyers, stock exchange data showed.
