Vietnam index rises 0.3 pct, big-caps lead

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  closed up 0.26 percent on Friday, as gains in some big-caps provided a cushion for falls in many other shares, led
by PetroVietNam Gas, the country's biggest firm by market value.
GAS shares advanced 3.68 percent, rebounding from Thursday's tumble triggered by a slip in global oil prices, while Hanoi-based lender Vietcombank  climbed 3.01 percent in solid volume.
Shareholders of Vietcombank, Vietnam's top lender by market value, approved on Friday a merger guideline that would allow its board of directors to find "an appropriate partner" and to propose a merger project with another lender, Vietcombank said on its web site.
Analysts and traders said VCB shares are in focus of foreign long-term funds as energy stocks have been slipping off the table due to a gloomy global sector outlook while banking equities are of offshore investors' appetite.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.
