Vietnam index ends near 10-wk low, investors cut loss

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  closed down 1.27 percent on Monday at its lowest level in nearly 10 weeks as investors cut loss after the index fell during the past two weeks, analysts said.
The index ended at 558.14 points, the lowest since Feb. 11, when it stood at 553.90.
Real estate shares led the fall, with Vingroup dropping 0.77 percent and HAGL  sliding 3.04 percent to 26,300 dong ($1.25), its lowest closing price in more than five weeks.

PetroVietnam Gas, Vietnam's biggest listed firm, lost 1.1 percent and technology company FPT Corp  fell 3.7 percent.
"The market falling deeply since early this month made some investors worried on further declines," said analyst Hoang Huy at ACB Securities. "Therefore, after a small gain in this morning session, investors started cutting loss by selling some blue chips."      

Here is a snapshot of the VN Index    at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Philippine near 9-month high on earnings hopes

Philippine shares closed near a nine-month high on expectations of good corporate earnings and the government's revised infrastructure spending plan while most
other Southeast Asian stock markets edged up on Monday.
The Philippines benchmark SE Composite Index  surpassed its 6680-point critical resistance level, bolstered by positioning from both foreign and local institutions ahead of
first-quarter corporate earnings, said Manny Cruz, a market strategist at Asiasec Equities.
"Indications reveal that earnings may surpass the 7-percent consensus estimate for earnings in all sectors... A lot of companies may be posting significant growth this year," Manny said.
Appetite was also boosted by a recent revised infrastructure plan by the Philippine government, under which it raised its target for poverty incidence by 2016 to a more realistic level.
"The government would like to be more aggressive over the next two years to pump-prime the economy in terms of infrastructure spending," Manny added.
Philippine shares jumped 1.44 percent to end at 6767.51 points, the highest level since July 25, 2013, led by telecom firm Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co  which rose 3.57 percent. Thursday's gains lifted the index to make it Southeast Asia's best performer so far this year, Reuters data showed.
Stocks in Malaysia   and Singapore   also inched up despite thin trade, and Bangkok's SET Index   marked a fourth straight gain to close at a fresh five-month high.
But shares in Indonesia drifted lower by 0.1 percent and Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   was near a 10-week low as investors cut losses on expectations of further declines.

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
