Vietnam index at 2-wk high, Vingroup up on retail deal


Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  closed up 0.64 percent to its highest since March 26, led by property firm Vingroup   on its purchase of a supermarket chain, analysts said.
   
 Vingroup shares jumped 3.04 percent in robust trade to 47,500 dong ($2.2) each, its highest close in more than two weeks, while dairy product maker Vinamilk   advanced 1.89 percent to a level unseen since March 19.
    
Vingroup, Vietnam's fourth biggest firm by capitalisation, said on Friday it was buying 39 supermarkets from garment producer Vinatex as it expands into the country's retail market and amid rising competition from foreigners.
    
Overseas investors turned net buyers of Vietnamese shares after three straight offload sessions,which analysts said would support sentiment in the following days and could help buoy a market rally after March's declines.
    
"If foreigners keep up their buying next week, the market rally may extend further until the index hits 570 points," said deputy manager Nguyen Thanh Lam of Maybank Kim Eng Securities.

SE Asia Stocks - Thai shares rebound before holidays


Thai stocks eked out small gains on Friday on thin volume ahead of a long weekend, while most other Southeast Asian stock markets ended higher as
investors built positions ahead of the start of a quarterly reporting season.
   
 Thai SET index   was up 0.2 percent on the day and 0.8 percent on the week, its second straight week. About 5.5 billion shares changed hands, less than half the 30-day average of 13.25 billion.  
    
The market will be closed on April 13-15 for a Thai new year holiday.
    
Large caps ended the day in a mixed bag. Outperformers included shares of Siam Cement   and Advanced Info Service  <ADVANC.BK> , while Krung Thai Bank   retreated from the gain on Thursday.
    
Banks will announce their January-March earnings late next  week and will be among key market focus, brokers said.
    
Macquarie Research said in a report that a two-year downgrade cycle for market earnings estimates of Thai large caps listed on the SET 100 index   could be approaching its bottom but downside risk remained.
    
The broker said it maintained its "underweight" call on Thailand.  
   
 "With a still weak economy, it is too early to expect any reversal in trend and we see risks are still tilted to the downside," it said in a report dated April 8.
    
Southeast Asian stock markets posted gains on the week, led by the Philippines' 1.7 percent.
   
 Stocks in Singapore   and Malaysia   each posted a weekly gain of 0.5 percent, a fourth straight week. Indonesia  <.JKSE>  rose 0.6 percent, a second week and Vietnam  was up 1.1 percent after four weeks of losses.

ASEAN  ANALYSIS

This year in Thailand-what next?


AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
