Vietnam index ends down 0.4 pct on foreigners' selling

 Vietnam's benchmark VN Index    closed down 0.36 percent on Friday in higher volume, driven partly by foreigners' selling after recent gains, analysts said.
 Shares of property firm Vingroup    fell 1.3 percent, while Petrovietnam Drilling & Well Services Corp   lost 2 percent.
 Foreign investors, who mostly trade blue chips, have been net sellers between Tuesday and Friday, according to the exchange's data, while analysts said rising interest was seen in  mid-cap and penny shares.
 A total of 108.89 million shares were traded, above the five-day average of 90.5 million, Reuters data showed.
 "The index could fall to as low as 600 points, given recent selling by foreigners," said analyst Hoang Huy of ACB Securities.
The index rose to 610.23 points during Wednesday's session before closing down, off a five-year high.
