HANOI, Feb 12 - Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   rose 0.5 percent to close at 584.67 points on Thursday, the highest since Nov. 25, with foreigners' purchases boosting gains in some big-caps.
Strong foreign buying into property firm Vingroup  lifted the shares by 3.09 percent to close at a four-month high of 50,000 dong ($2.3), while overseas investors also bet on food producer Masan Group    that ticked up 1.83 percent.
Property firm HAGL  attracted domestic funds, rising 1.82 percent in a one-month high volume, following its plan to establish a venture with Singapore's Rowsley Ltd    and after a 60-percent jump in net profit last year.
Rowsley said on Thursday it was in a proposed 50/50 venture with HAGL to develop and manage a $550-million real estate project in Myanmar, which would be one of the largest mixed-use developments in Yangon.

SE Asia Stocks -Philippine snaps losing streak; cenbank keeps rates

BANGKOK, Feb 12 (Reuters) - Malaysian index hit a near two-week closing low on Thursday as tariff reduction concerns weighed on index heavyweight power firm Tenaga Nasional  while the Philippine index ended two days of falls before the central bank decided to keep rates.
Kuala Lumpur composite index   finished down 0.6 percent at 1,789.07. It rebounded from an intraday low of 1,780.21, backed by better-than-expected economic data.
Malaysia's economy grew a faster-than-expected 5.8 percent in the fourth quarter from a year earlier even as falling oil prices and sluggish global demand hit exports.  
 Tenaga shares shed 5.3 percent, the worst drop since October 2008, after the government said it cut electricity tariff in Peninsular Malaysia and the Borneo state of Sabah following declines in prices of feedstock and crude oil.
 The Philippine index  rebounded 0.4 percent after a 0.5 percent loss on Wednesday. The central bank said after market close that it left its benchmark interest rate on hold, as expected, and signalled it can stay on the sidelines for some time.  
Stocks in Singapore   snapped two days of gains, while Thailand , Indonesia   and Vietnamrose marginally amid caution over the ongoing Greek debt negotiations.
