Vietnam index ends up 0.6 pct, banks shine

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index climbed 0.61 percent to close up the fourth time in a row, as all banking equities advanced on the prospect lending could be
boosted next year, while the broader market moved mixed in low liquidity.
Ho Chi Minh City-based lender Eximbank attracted heavy trading, outperforming the market to close up 6.35 percent at 13,400 dong ($0.63), the highest in more than five months.
Vietcombank, Vietnam's top lender by market value, rose 2.09 percent to near a three-month-high close, while Hanoi-based VietinBank jumped 3.57 percent.
"Inflation next year is targeted at 5 percent, above this year, so banks are expected to have more lending activities in 2015 given there is more room for money supply," a private trader in Hanoi said.
The government aims to keep inflation at 5 percent in 2015, while the annual inflation this year could be below 3 percent, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung told a business forum on Tuesday.
Bank loans are needed to accommodate economic growth which is projected to accelerate to an annual rate of 6.2 percent in 2015 from more than 5.9 percent expected this year.
Volume fell 9 percent from the previous session to 108 million shares ahead of a portfolio review announcement by the db x-trackers FTSE exchange-traded fund  scheduled
after market close on Friday.
