Foreign inflows ($63.45M Thursday and $3.6B YTD) boosted Malaysian stocks (EWM) to all time highs Thursday ahead of elections set for May 5.

In other Southeast Asian markets, Vietnamese shares (VNM) rose handily after yesterday's mini flash crash, and Thai stocks (THD) rose +1.78% as the SET Index finished above the psychologically important 1,500 level.
