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.
