Vietnam stock index falls 1 pct; Military Bank outperforms
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI closed almost 1 percent lower on Thursday, with most shares losing ground after a swift rebound in the previous session, but Military Commercial Bank MBB.HM advanced in solid volume.
Losers outnumbered winners by nearly two to one, with Vietcombank VCB.HM , the nation's biggest firm by market value, down 2.17 percent and BIDV BID.HM , the country's top partly private lender by assets, lower 2.9 percent.
Military Bank bucked the trend and ended up 0.63 percent in the highest volume traded in nearly five weeks, after the firm said on Wednesday it would pay shareholders three shares for every 100 owned.
Analysts said the share dividend payment by the bank would open room for more purchases by foreign investors whose ownership has always been at the 10 percent limit allowed for trading.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index .VNI at the close

SE Asia Stocks - Malaysia's index posts worst drop since December
Malaysian shares posted their worst drop in nearly eight months on Thursday due to a fall in the ringgit and foreign-led selling, while most other markets in Southeast Asia fell as investors weighed in the risk of a possible U.S. interest rate hike.
The Kuala Lumpur composite index .KLSE dropped 1.8 percent, the biggest single-day loss since December 2014. The Malaysian bourse said foreign investors unloaded a net 261 million ringgit ($67 million) on the day.
The ringgit weakened past 3.9000 per dollar on Thursday for the first time since the Asian financial crisis 17 years ago as concern grew over a corruption scandal embroiling the prime minister and weakness in commodity prices.
Indexes in Thailand .SETI and Indonesia .JKSE reversed their previous day's gains, while the Philippines .PSI snapped
a six-day winning streak, reflecting the heightened expectations of a possible interest rate hike in the United States.
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI closed almost 1 percent lower, with most shares losing ground after a swift rebound in the previous session.
Singapore .FTSTI finished up 0.17 percent in a range-bound session. The city-state's stock market will be closed from Friday through Monday.
