Vietnam index snaps rising streak, energy stocks fall
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index snapped a week of all gains ended Dec. 5 to drop 1.22 percent at the close on Monday, as strong selling of energy-related shares on lower crude prices spread weak appetite in most equities.
PetroVietNam Gas , the country's top firm by market value and a subsidiary of state oil and gas group Petrovietnam, led the decliners, closing at its one-year low with a 6.36-percent drop, Reuters data showed.
Petrovietnam Drilling & Well Services Corp ended 6.71 percent down, churning out investors' appetite in more than half of the total listed shares, including lender Eximbank that dropped 3.82 percent, a second straight loss off its five-month high hit last week.
Oil prices fell more than a dollar at one stage on Monday, hovering near a five-year low, after Morgan Stanley cut its forecast for Brent crude, while the market got little support from mixed Chinese trade data.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Thai SET index near 3-wk low; outflows hit Malaysia, Indonesia
Southeast Asian stocks fell on Monday as lower crude oil prices hit energy shares, dragging the key Thai index to the lowest in almost three weeks, while stocks in Malaysia and Indonesia slipped amid foreign outflows and weak currencies.
The Thai stock market was an underperformer due to late selloffs in large-cap energy stocks fuelled by further weaknesses in crude oil markets after Morgan Stanley cut its forecasts.
The key SET index was down 1.4 percent at 1,575.55, the lowest close since Nov. 20. Shares of Thailand's number two energy firm PTT Exploration and Production dropped 3.8 percent to 127 baht, a level last seen in November 2009.
Oil-related stocks led among the losers across exchanges, including Malaysia's Petronas Chemicals Group Bhd , Singapore's Noble Group Ltd and Indonesia's coal shares such as PT Berau Coal Energy Tbk .
Foreign investors were net sellers of Malaysian shares worth a net 293.26 million ringgit ($83.93 million) and Indonesian shares worth a net 391.79 billion rupiah ($31.73 million).
Malaysia's ringgit and Indonesia's rupiah hit their weakest since the 2008-09 global financial crisis on Monday as emerging Asian currencies lost ground after solid U.S. job data boosted the chance of an early Federal Reserve interest rate hike.
The Philippine stock market was closed on Monday due to heavy rains and strong winds caused by Typhoon Hagupit.
