Vietnam index gains 0.3 pct, trade dull during holiday 
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  rose 0.29 percent at Wednesday's close on global recoveries, but trading volume dropped near a five-month low 
during the holiday season. 
PetroVietNam Gas , Vietnam's biggest firm by market value, advanced 1.43 percent, and food producer Masan Group Corp   rose 2.45 percent, in line with rallies on the global equity markets after surprisingly upbeat U.S. growth data. 
But top insurer Baoviet Holdings   bucked market trend to drop 4.48 percent, after the company announced changes in executive positions on Tuesday. 
Volume fell to 71 million shares, the lowest level since Aug. 1, as the market lacked participants during the holiday-shortened week and ahead of the New Year holidays. 
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  at the close 
                           VN Index       539.44              
                PREV. CLOSE       537.88              
                     % CHANGE        0.29%              
                       HIGH       541.73              
                        LOW       536.79              
SE Asia Stocks- Indonesia rises to 3-wk high; Singapore, Malaysia extend gains 
Indonesian stocks hit a near 3-week closing high on Wednesday, while Singapore and Malaysia rose for a sixth successive session as increased risk appetite by investors boosted regional bourses after surprisingly robust U.S. economic growth data.  
Regional large caps such as Singapore Telecommunications  and Malaysia's Malayan Banking   led the gainers after revised data on Tuesday showed the U.S. economy grew at 5 percent in the third quarter, the quickest pace in 11 years.  
The Jakarta composite index   ended 0.5 percent higher at 5,166.98, the highest close since Dec. 5, after Tuesday's modest rise. Vietnam   gained 0.3 percent. 
Singapore's key Straits Times Index   finished up 0.4 percent, building on the 3.7 percent gains seen over the past five days. The key Malaysian index   firmed slightly, further recovering from a low of 1,673.94 hit on Dec. 16. 
Thai shares , however, fell for the second day, erasing midsession gains to close 0.4 percent lower amid late profit-taking in large caps such as Bangkok Bank    which edged down 0.3 percent. 
"For short-term strategy, we see a good opportunity to accumulate big-cap stocks, such as Kasikornbank, Bangkok Bank ... to lock in gains on the year-end window dressing," strategists at broker Phillip Securities wrote in a report. 
Foreign investors bought Malaysian shares worth a net 47 million ringgit ($13.45 million) and Thai shares worth a net 118 million baht ($3.59 million). 
Singapore and Malaysia will be closed for Christmas on Thursday. Indonesia will be shut on Thursday and Friday. 
 The Philippine stock market is closed on Wednesday through Friday for the Christmas holidays, and will reopen on Monday.

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber
