Vietnam index ends up 0.7 pct, volume at 5-mth high

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   closed up 0.73 percent on Friday with volume hitting the highest since late March on strong buying, especially in banking stocks.
Lenders outperformed the market, with Hanoi-based BIDV   surging 6.43 percent in a five-month high volume, Reuters data showed.
Vietcombank , the biggest listed bank by capitalisation, climbed 1.82 percent and top partly private bank by assets Vietinbank   rose 1.37 percent.
Other blue chips also climbed, including property firm Vingroup   with a 4.46 percent advance. Food producer Masan Group  <MSN.HM>  increased 1.8 percent.
Analysts gave mixed indications for the market in coming weeks, as money inflow seemed solid while foreign investors turned net sellers in the two previous sessions.
"Technical indicators are showing very positive outlook for the market, but macro-economic data is not supportive enough to keep up the hype," said analyst Vu Thi Thu Trang of APEC Securities.
The VN Index is now Asia's second fastest riser since the beginning of the year at 26.16 percent, Reuters data showed.
 Foreign investors have bought a net $220 million of Vietnamese equities in 2014 so far as of Thursday, almost double the level in the same period last year.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at the close
