Vietnam shares gain most in 1 month, Vinamilk leads
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI closed up 0.81 percent on Tuesday, posting its biggest percentage jump since March 2, with most blue chips advancing in a technical rebound after three consecutive losses.
Gainers outnumbered losers by nearly two to one, with shares of food, beverage and tobacco companies leading the market.
Top dairy products maker Vinamilk VNM.HM , the country's biggest company by market value, outperformed with a 2.24 percent rise after its shareholders approved a plan to dispose some of its businesses to meet requirements for easing foreign ownership limit.
Analysts expect the index, Southeast Asia's best performer in 2015, to fluctuate marginally this week.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index .VNI at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Mostly down; U.S. Fed minutes awaited
Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Tuesday, tracking global markets on weak oil
prices and uncertainty ahead of the release of minutes of the U.S. Federal Reserve's last policy meeting.
Singapore's main stock index .STI was down 1.5 percent by 0900 GMT, after falling as much as 1.8 percent to its lowest since March 9, while Thailand's SET index .SETI dropped 1.6 percent.
Among top losers in Singapore, Sembcorp Industries Ltd SCIL.SI fell 3.4 percent, while oil and gas firm PTT Pcl
PTT.BK in Bangkok lost 1.8 percent.
"Asian markets are down due to the falling oil price and investors in the region are also waiting for the FOMC minutes.
They are now taking profit ahead of the FOMC," said Andri Zakarias, an analyst with BNI Securities in Jakarta.
Oil slipped to a one-month low on Tuesday after a surprise fall in gasoline demand in the United States, the world's
largest oil consumer, and doubts whether oil producers can agree an output freeze to dampen a global supply glut.
Signals were mixed on U.S. policy direction with Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's dovish speech last week contrasting with more hawkish remarks from other central bank policymakers.
The Philippine index .PSI was down 0.5 percent, while Malaysian stocks .KLSE fell 0.4 percent.
Bucking the trend, Indonesia .JKSE gained 0.2 percent and Vietnam .VNI rose 0.8 percent.
