BANGKOK, Jan 22 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets
edged lower on Tuesday, recouping some of their earlier losses
as the Bank of Japan's bold policy lifted optimism about more
fund flows to the region, bolstering late buying in large caps
such as Singapore and Thai banks.
    Singapore's Straits Times Index ended down 0.05
percent at 3,219.86, with shares in United Overseas Bank Ltd
 among actively traded, up 0.9 percent. Bangkok's SET
index fell 0.44 percent to 1,434.09.
    Among bright spots in Bangkok, shares in Krung Thai Bank Pcl
 gained 3.9 percent. Citi Research has raised its price
target for Krung Thai Bank, citing strong revenue outlook and
lower risk of future provision. 
    Philippine Composite Index fell 1.1 percent to
6,104.90, snapping three sessions of gains. It had set a record
finish of 6,171.70 on Monday.
    Malaysia's index was down 0.43 percent at 1,628.66,
after Monday's 2.4 percent loss amid concerns about the
country's upcoming election.
