SE Asia Stocks-Vietnam hits 9-yr high as focus returns to banks


Vietnam shares hit their highest since Feb 2008 on Wednesday, led by gains in financials, while most other Southeast Asian markets rose ahead of key U.S. economic data that could influence Federal Reserve's rate hike decision.
    
The consumer price index is expected to have risen 0.3 percent in January after a similar gain in December, while
retail sales are likely to have risen 0.1 percent in January after advancing 0.6 percent the previous month.    
    
Vietnam index  .VNI  rose for a fourth straight session to close 0.8 percent higher. Trading volumes were 1.5 times the
30-day average.
    
"It looks like basket trading in a couple of key stocks ... we are seeing a return to favour of some of the banks," said
Fiachra Mac Cana, head of research at Ho Chi Minh Securities.
    
"We are sitting on top of a major resistance line right now ... we may see the markets consolidate at current levels," Mac Cana added.
    
Vietnam Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Industry and Trade  CTG.HM  added 3.5 percent to end at its highest in nearly 15 months. Vietcombank  VCB.HM  gained 0.8 percent.
    
Vingroup JSC  VIC.HM  rose 4.6 percent to close at its highest since Sept. 30, 2016. The real estate company's stock
traded heavily, clocking over four-times its 30-day average.
    
Singapore  .STI  rose 0.5 percent, lifted primarily by Thai Beverage PCL  TBEV.SI , up 6.8 percent at its highest in three months after reporting a 28 percent jump in its quarterly net profit.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nFWN1FZ0P8
    
Index heavyweight Singapore Telecommunications Ltd  STEL.SI  rose 0.8 percent to close at its highest since Oct 2016.     
    
Philippines  .PSI  reversed early gains and fell 0.5 percent to its lowest in almost a month, weighed down by financial
stocks.  
    
Conglomerate Ayala Corp  AC.PS  and Bank of the Philippine Islands  BPI.PS  closed 1.8 percent lower. In contrast,
International Container Terminal Services Inc  ICT.PS  gained 2.8 percent, recovering from the previous sessions heavy losses.
