Vietnam index near 15-week high; Vingroup leads on sales forecast

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI  rose 1.21 percent to end at 579.27 points on Monday, the highest closing level so far this year, with most large-cap companies gaining ground in robust trade despite downbeat economy forecast.
The country's top property and retail firm Vingroup  VIC.HM led the market, jumping 6.32 percent to a record high on investors' expectation of upbeat sale results.  

World Bank trimmed its 2016 economic growth forecast for Vietnam to 6.2 percent from 6.3 percent in its estimate in October 2015, driven by slower private consumption and investment growth.  

Trading volume was 143.2 million shares, much above the five-day average of 130.1 million.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  .VNI  at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Mixed; Indonesia down ahead of economic data, earnings

Southeast Asian stocks traded mixed on Monday as global uncertainties lingered, with Indonesia posting its biggest single day loss in seven weeks ahead of the release of economic data later in the week and on concerns over company earnings.
Malaysia's stock index  .KLSE  lost 0.2 percent, while shares in the Philippines  .PSI  gained 0.6 percent, led by
power company First Gen Corp  FGEN.PS , which climbed nearly 3 percent.
"Oil price rebound should reinforce investor confidence on risky assets. However, uncertainties are expected to linger
ahead of the OPEC/non-OPEC meeting scheduled on April 17," said Taye Shim, head of research at KDB Daewoo Securities Indonesia.
Brent crude futures  LCOc1 , the global benchmark, rallied last week but retreated on Monday.  
Meanwhile, the World Bank trimmed its 2016 and 2017 economic growth forecasts for developing East Asia and Pacific, saying
the outlook was clouded by risks such as uncertainty over China's growth prospects. It sees growth picking up in Indonesia
this year, but expects a slowdown in Malaysia and Thailand.
Indonesia's Jakarta Composite Index  .JKSE  fell 1.2 percent to its lowest closing since March 29 ahead of the release of
trade data and the consumer confidence index later this week, and company earnings later this month.     
DBS Bank sees Indonesia's March import growth declining from a year earlier, suggesting domestic demand remains lacklustre.  
The biggest decliners in Jakarta included heavyweights such as auto distributor PT Astra International Tbk  ASII.JK , which
fell 3.1 percent, and lender PT Bank Mandiri Tbk  BMRI.JK , which slipped 3.3 percent.     
Singapore  .STI  and Thailand  .SETI  gained marginally, while Vietnam  .VNI  rose to its highest closing level so far this year.

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber

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
