Vietnam index hits 6-mth low on heavy selling


Vietnam's benchmark VN Index tumbled 2.86 percent to close at the lowest in half a year, beyond market expectations, as sharp falls in energy shares
triggered margin call and offloads in the broader market.
    
The index closed at 555.31, the lowest since June 5, while the Tuesday drop is the biggest since May 12 when investors withdrew funds amid rising tension at sea with China.

Nearly three quarters of the equities lost ground on Tuesday, led by the hammered oil and gas sector that was hurt by lower global crude prices, while volume surged to a two-month high with 192 million shares.
    
Energy-related stocks on both Vietnamese exchanges were battered to close near their floor prices. PetroVietNam Gas  <GAS.HM> , the country's top listed firm by market value, hit near a 11-month low with a 6.79-percent loss.

Analysts attributed recent drops in Vietnamese energy shares to weaker global oil prices, but were surprised with such strong offloads on the sector and effect on the broader market.
    
"The market is out of control... Margin call on energy shares has started since yesterday and I thought there would be a domino effect but didn't expect it to be this strong and fast," said deputy manager Nguyen Thanh Lam of Maybank Kim Eng Securities.

Benchmark Brent crude slipped again on Tuesday to its lowest in five years, dropping below $66 a barrel after plunging more than 4 percent the day before on worries of a swelling supply glut.  

Food producer Masan Group   managed to close flat among its declining peers, having announced on Monday its subsidiary Masan Consumer Holdings raised 2.1 trillion dong ($98.48 million) via selling 10-year bonds at a fixed coupon of 8 percent per year.

Foreign investors sold shares worth a net 3.5 billion baht ($106.32 million), erasing their net purchase of 1.8 billion baht on Monday.
    
The Thai stock market will be closed on Wednesday for a public holiday, reopening on Thursday.

ASEAN  ANALYSIS

This year in Thailand-what next?


AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. 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.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
