SE Asia Stocks-Vietnam, Philippines fall as corporate earnings disappoint

Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Tuesday with Vietnam hitting a one-month low, after a few companies reported poor earnings this season, hurting market
The Vietnam index  .VNI  closed 1.9 percent lower, dragged down by financial stocks with Vinamilk  VNM.HM , the country's top-listed firm by market value, slipping 1.9 percent.  
Military Commercial Joint Stock Bank  MBB.HM  shed 0.67 percent after posting a fall in second-quarter profit.
Vietcombank,  VCB.HM , the country's top lender by market value fell 2.8 percent, and is planning to issue up to 8 trillion dong ($358.7 million) worth of bonds in 2016, the
Vietnam Plus web site reported.    
"Bank results were quite scary," said Farhan Rizvi of Credit Suisse (Singapore) Ltd. "Things are not looking good for them
with operating profits dropping and provisions rising. In case of stocks such as Vinamilk, investors were focused on profit-taking," he added.
The Vietnam government forecast a weak economic outlook on Friday which continued to hurt sentiment.  

Singapore shares  .STI  finished 1.2 percent down as their major constituent - financial stocks - lost ground, with the biggest lender DBS Group  DBSM.SI  being among the top losers on
the index.  
Philippine shares  .PSI  lost 0.4 percent, after blue-chip company Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co  TEL.PS  reported a 33 percent drop in quarterly profit.*:nL3N1AJ24M  
Thai shares  .SETI  also edged down. The Thai central bank is expected to leave its policy rate unchanged, when the policy committee meets on Wednesday, according to a Reuters poll.
Asian shares tracked the falls on Wall Street and edged lower, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  slipping 0.4 percent.  
"Markets will be moving sideways because of the start of the 'ghost month' tomorrow," said Mikey Macanaig of Sunsecurities Inc.
Some analysts said the 'ghost month' in China has stalled momentum in the markets due to a popular belief that Chinese investors should not spend or even trade much during this month.
