Vietnam index posts strongest weekly gain in two months
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI edged up in mixed trade on Friday, posting the first weekly gain in nearly one month.
Dairy products maker Vinamilk VNM.HM , the country's top firm by market value, outperformed the market, rallying 1.42 percent, with its relative strength index (RSI) over 70, slightly above the over-bought level.
The stock index rose 0.13 percent and gained a combined 2.5 percent this week, the strongest weekly gain since late January, after being Southeast Asia's worst performer in the first quarter of 2016, Reuters data showed.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index .VNI at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Mixed; Thailand rises after five sessions of losses
Southeast Asian stock markets ended mixed on Friday with Thailand bouncing back from a near six-week low hit earlier in the session on the back of bargain-hunting after five straight sessions of losses.
The Thai SET Index .SETI gained 0.95 percent on Friday, but posted a weekly fall of 2.2 percent as weak oil prices hit energy stocks.
"For short-term strategy, any dips should be taken as an opportunity to accumulate positions," Phillip Capital in Bangkok said.
The Philippines .PSI gained 0.2 percent on Friday, led by property developer Robinsons Land Corp RLC.PS with a gain of 2.1 percent.
Singapore's Straits Times Index .STI dropped as much as 1.1 percent before recovering some lost ground to close 0.2
percent lower. It fell 0.4 percent for the week, its third straight weekly drop.
Lack of positive domestic catalysts and concerns over first-quarter results in Indonesia caused a 0.4 percent fall in
the Jakarta Composite Index .JKSE , said Trimegah Securities.
Banking stocks led the losses with two of the country's largest banks as top decliners. Shares of PT Bank Mandiri Tbk
BMRI.JK dropped 4.37 percent, their biggest fall since Feb. 19, while PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia Tbk BBRI.JK fell 2.7 percent.
Indonesian companies will start reporting first-quarter results later this month.
