Vietnam index ends down 0.1 pct, gains expected

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  ended down 0.13 percent on Friday, with bargain hunting late in the session narrowing earlier losses, and analysts
expected the index to soon rebound.

Most stocks fell, led by property firm Vingroup  that lost 2.13 percent, followed by dairy product maker Vinamilk  that decreased 0.69 percent.
But gains in a few blue chips on Friday afternoon reverted earlier losses, including PetroVietNam Gas, Vietnam's largest listed firm, with a 2.16-percent advance.

Shares in food producer Masan Group   rose 1.03 percent after the company projected its net profit in 2014 to rise at least 39 percent from last year, it said in a statement on its website.

"Investors have started to pick up shares which have fallen," said analyst Nguyen The Minh at Viet Capital Securities.
The index could bounce back soon, lifted by gains in several blue chips, analysts said.

SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia falls on week after election result

Indonesia shares ended higher on Friday, trimming losses on the week amid bargain hunting in battered large caps as investors weighed political
uncertainties after an unconvincing election win by the main opposition party.

Jakarta's Composite Index   closed up 1.1 percent, recouping some of the more than 3 percent drop on the previous session as shares of Bank Mandiri   and Bank Rakyat Indonesia  rebounded after steep losses on Thursday.

It was down 0.9 percent on the week.

Stocks in Singapore, Malaysia   and Thailand  drifted lower on the week after recent rally. The Philippines  and Vietnam   outperformed, with a
weekly gain of 0.6 percent and 1.3 percent, respectively.

Global equities slipped to a two-week low on Friday as a sell-off on Wall Street led by technology and biotech shares and triggered by concerns that valuations are over stretched spread to Asia and Europe.
The Thai market will be closed on Monday and Tuesday for a public holiday.
