Vietnam index falls 0.6 pct, blue chips lead

HANOI, April 27 - 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 - Fall amid outflows, Fed meeting eyed

BANGKOK, April 28 - Southeast Asian stock markets pulled lower on Tuesday amid foreign outflows ahead of the Federal Reserve's policy meeting, with the Thai benchmark hitting its lowest in more than four weeks as investors awaited an interest rate decision.
 Bangkok's SET index  was down 1.1 percent at 1,531.53, the lowest close since April 1. Shares of Kasikornbank   lost almost 3 percent while Krung Thai Bank eased 1 percent, and were among the most actively traded.
Thailand's central bank is expected to leave its policy rate steady on Wednesday after a surprise cut last month, despite calls for further easing to weaken the baht and boost a sputtering economy.
 Indonesia's index , which earlier fell as much as 1.54 percent, after having dropped 3.5 percent on Monday, ended a tad lower.
Malaysian shares   extended losses to a second session, while Singapore  and the Philippines, which were both rising over the past three days, also fell.
 Vietnam   is closed Tuesday through Friday for national holidays.
Most markets reported a net foreign selling on the day, including Thailand's 2.8 billion baht ($85.97 million), Indonesia's 1.82 trillion rupiah ($140.1 million) and the Philippines' 619 million peso ($14 million).
The two-day meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee starts later in the day.
 Market                     Current        Prev Close    Pct Move
 Singapore             3495.09              3515.85           -0.59
 Kuala Lumpur       1855.06             1859.58           -0.24
 Bangkok                1531.53             1548.83           -1.12
 Jakarta                   5242.16             5245.45           -0.06
 Manila                     7886.57           7958.07            -0.90

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber

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
