SE Asia Stocks-Vietnam rallies; Malaysia up on positive industrial data

Vietnam shares  .VNI  rallied on Thursday, outperforming the region to post their fourth consecutive session of gains, as jumps in large-cap companies buoyed up sentiment, while Malaysian stocks hit a more-than-three-month high on positive industrial production data.  
Big sell-offs in Vietnam in the past few weeks, driven mostly by margin selling, has been followed by re-focussing of buyers into a handful of stocks, said Fiachra MacCana, head of research, Ho Chi Minh Securities.
Financials and consumer staples drove gains on the Vietnam bourse. Dairy producer Vinamilk  VNM.HM , Vietnam's biggest-listed firm by market value, rose 3.05 percent, while the country's biggest lender by market capitalisation Vietcombank  VCB.HM  gained 4.6 percent.  
"The money is returning to the basic stocks and large caps accompanied by increased trading volume," BIDV Securities Company said in a note.       
"However, given the lower-than-average volumes, very narrow focus of buying, lack of resolution in some ongoing stock-specific governance issues, and the still rather high margin lending balances, we expect this rally to be fairly short-lived," added MacCana.
Malaysian stocks  .KLSE  gained 0.34 percent to its highest close since April 27, fuelled by the country's June industrial production data.  
Factory output rose 5.3 percent from a year earlier, due to strength in the mining, manufacturing, and electricity sectors, government data showed. 
Malaysia's second-quarter gross domestic product figures are expected on Friday.  
Thai shares  .SETI  inched higher as the country's central bank international reserves rose to $182.5 billion. 
The central bank and finance ministry have predicted higher growth in the second quarter compared with the first.  
Philippine shares  .PSI  slipped 0.8 percent for the second consecutive session, dragged down by financial stocks, such as
GT Capital Holdings Inc  GTCAP.PS  and investment holding company Metro Pacific Investments Corp  MPI.PS .
The Philippine central bank left its benchmark interest rate at 3 percent, lowered its forecasts for 2016 and 2017 average
Singapore  .STI  and Indonesia  .JKSE  closed marginally down.

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.

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


Indonesia  to launch 13th economic package this month

Coordinating Economic Minister Darmin Nasution said on Wednesday that the government would release its 13th economic policy package in August, adding that the draft had been completed.

Darmin said the 13th package was largely an extension of the previous one, but would expand its focus beyond industry. The 12th package focused on small and medium enterprises.

"We are just waiting to schedule a meeting with the president," Darmin told reporters at his office. He refused to give the exact date the new policy package would come into effect.

 The ministry team must meet with President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo one more time to finalize the details, Darmin said.
