Vietnam index falls 0.6 pct, blue chips lead

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  ended 0.6 percent lower on Monday, pulled down by several blue chips including some banks, while gains in several other banks and the country's top insurance firm, Baoviet Holdings , helped trim the fall.
The index closed at the session's low of 562.4, with Ocean Group Co  leading the decline, falling 4.76 percent after the central bank said it would nationalise a bank in the group.
Last Saturday Vietnam's central bank said it would acquire all shares in the loss-making Dai Duong Bank, a unit of Ocean Group Co, to ensure the banking system's safety.
The group, which interests in real estate, banking, securities, retail, media and hotels, has already suffered after its chairman was arrested last October for financial fraud.
Vinamilk , the country's second-largest listed firm by market value, dropped 0.92 percent even though the company's first quarter net profit rose 10.3 percent from a year earlier to 1.88 trillion dong ($87 million), it said in a statement via the exchange.  
Vietcombank, Vietnam's largest lender by market value, and BIDV   fell on Monday, while VietinBank , the biggest partly private lender by assets, gained 1.69 percent and insurer Baoviet Holdings rose 0.28 percent.
The market will be closed between April 28 and May 1 for a public holiday and trade will resume on May 4.

SE Asia Stocks - Most retreat; Indonesia posts worst drop since August 2013

Most Southeast Asian stock markets retreated on Monday in rangebound trade on foreign investors-led selling, with the Indonesian benchmark nearly oversold amid earnings concerns, while Thai banks fell ahead of an interest rate decision this week.
The Jakarta composite index   dropped 3.5 percent, its worst since August 2013. Its 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) was at 30.07, near an oversold territory of 30 or lower.
Foreign investors sold large caps - including PT Bank Mandiri Tbk , which planned a rights issue, and PT Astra Agro Lestari Tbk  <AALI.JK>  following its disappointing quarterly earnings.
The selloffs reflected concerns about weak first-quarter earnings of listed firms and the outlook for the year, with a weak rupiah  <IDR=>  eroding earnings growth, said Harry Su, head of research at broker Bahana Securities.
Thai stocks  eased 0.4 percent, led by a 2.9 percent loss in Krung Thai Bank. Foreign investors sold shares worth a net 1.6 billion baht ($48.94 million) on the day, stock
exchange data showed.  
Investors awaited a rate decision by the monetary policy committee on Wednesday. A Reuters poll showed all but one of 20 economists predict the one-day repurchase rate  will be left unchanged at 1.75 percent.
The Philippines' key index   ended higher 0.1 percent, erasing most of its early gains. The bourse reported a net foreign outflow worth 782 million pesos ($17.66 million), with shares of BDO Unibank   among hit large caps.
 Malaysia , which had touched its highest since Sept. 12 earlier in the day, ended down 0.2 percent. Singapore   added a mere 0.1 percent, its third straight gain.  
Vietnam   was down 0.6 percent, reversing from a one-week closing high on Friday. The market will be closed  between April 28 and May 1 for public holiday and trade will resume on May 4.
