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.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. 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.
