Vietnam index rises 0.8 pct, banks lead on investors' expectations

Vietnam's VN Index  .VNI  closed up 0.8 percent on Wednesday for a second straight gain, with banking shares leading the market on investors' expectations of upbeat corporate results.  
Investors expect banks to make more profit next year, analysts said. Half of the country's six listed lenders rallied while the others stood flat. Vietcombank  VCB.HM  rose 0.69 percent and Military Commercial  MBB.HM  was unchanged.
Confectionary firm Kinh Do Corp  KDC.HM  extended its loss to the second consecutive session, tumbling 4.41 percent after the Market Vectors Vietnam ETF  VNM.P , a major exchange-traded fund of Vietnamese shares, lowered the KDC stock weighting on its portfolio on Monday.   
Analysts predict the market to see big movements on Thursday's session following news on the U.S. Federal Reserve interest rate policy.  
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  .VNI  at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Most higher; Thai index retreats on telecoms shares

Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose along with Asia on Wednesday as investors braced for a likely hike in U.S. interest rates, but the Thai index fell amid selling in telecoms shares on concerns over high bid prices for 4G spectrum licences.
The Thai SET index  .SETI  was down 0.11 percent, pushed lower by a 5.6 percent drop in top telecoms firm Advanced Info Service  ADVANC.BK  and a 7.1 percent slide in second-ranked Total Access Communication  DTAC.BK .
The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) continued bids for two licences of 900MHz frequency for the second day amid a fierce contest that pushed up bidding prices.   
Banking stocks  .SETB  were up 0.7 percent after the Bank of Thailand kept its policy interest rate steady at 1.5 percent as expected and predicted the domestic economy to perform slightly better this year than the forecast 2.7 percent.
Market sentiment appeared favourable due to the better domestic economic outlook, brokers said.
Among outperformers in the region, Indonesia  .JKSE  and the Philippines  .PSI  climbed almost two percent, with the focus also shifting to the central banks of both countries which are expected to hold monetary policy steady on Thursday.
