Vietnam index ends flat, FPT outperforms

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   closed almost unchanged on Friday, with technology firm FPT Corp  <FPT.HM>  outperforming the market on expectations the foreign ownership cap would be removed at some listed firms, analysts said.
 FPT shares closed up 4.51 percent at a five-month high in its heaviest volume since October 2014, as investors raised hopes that the government may remove the 49-percent foreign ownership limit in some listed firms, including FPT, analysts said.

Property firm Vingroup  gained 1.46 percent and food producer Masan Group  increased 0.63 percent, while losses in some other big-caps including a 1.48-percent fall in PetroVietNam Gas, Vietnam's top firm by market value.

SE Asia Stocks-Philippine falls on foreign selling; others flat to weaker  

Southeast Asian stock markets ended flat to weaker on Friday as Philippine stocks slid on selling led by foreign funds and Singapore shares extended
losses with investors locking in gains in an overbought market.
The Philippines' key index  closed 0.02 percent lower on Friday, the worst performing bourse on the week after it dropped 2.2 percent from its record closing high of 8,127.48 the previous Friday.
Shares of Universal Robina Corp   and GT Capital Holdings   were the top two losers on the day, with foreign investors being net sellers, stock exchange data showed.

Most other markets posted gains on the week, partly reflecting hopes that an interest rate increase in the United States could be imposed later than June, brokers said.
