Vietnam index ends up 0.2 pct, volume near 4-mth low

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  ended up 0.19 percent on Thursday, with investors trading in caution, pushing volume down near a four-month low.
A total of 56.7 million shares changed hand, the lowest since Jan. 3, Reuters data showed.
Weak appetite on recent falls and a lack of news are likely to influence on trading in the next few weeks, said analyst Tran Minh Hoang at Vietcombank Securities.
But foreign investors have been net buyers in the past four straight sessions ended Wednesday, with net purchase value totalling 332 billion dong ($15.7 million), exchange's data showed.
"Foreigners, who mostly look for mid- and long-term investments, see the index's recent falls as an opportunity to bargain hunt," Hoang said.
 PetroVietNam Gas, Vietnam's largest listed firm, rose 1.09 percent, and food producer Masan Group  <MSN.HM>  edged up 0.53 percent.

SE Asia Stocks-Thai shares ease on late sell out; Singapore near 11-mth high

Most Southeast Asian markets fell on Thursday with a late sell out erasing earlier gains in Thai shares though solid buying in the Singapore market pushed the Straits Times Index to a near eleven-month high.
Bangkok's SET Index  barely changed, edged down 0.05 percent on selling near market close that pushed trading volumes to a more than five-week high, Reuters data showed.  
The recent rallies in the index were mostly due to foreign investors cashing into laggard emerging markets, analysts said.
"Once the portfolio rebalancing is over we are likely to see weaker trading environment," Maybank Kim Eng said in a note to clients.
The Philippine SE Composite Index   and Indonesia's Jakarta SE Composite Index , the region's best performers, fell 0.56 percent and 0.04 percent respectively.
But Singapore's Straits Times Index   bounced back from Wednesday's profit-taking session to close up 0.8 percent.
Singapore Telecommunications Ltd , the city-state's biggest listed firm by market capitalisation, led the gains, rising 1.62 percent to close near a five-month high.
