Vietnam index ends up 0.6 pct, property leads

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  climbed 0.62 percent to close at 578.12 points on Wednesday, with small- and mid-cap stocks attracting most
investments, especially in the real estate sector.

Nearly all property shares advanced, with Vingroup  gaining 0.6 percent and HAGL Co  <HAG.HM>  rising 1.16 percent.  

Tan Tao Investment and Industry Corp  closed up 1.28 percent to its one-year high of 7,900 dong ($0.37) as the most traded stock on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange, Reuters data showed.

Investors bought small- and mid-cap stocks after taking profit from most big shares, keeping money within the market, said analyst Le Dac An at Tan Viet Securities.

"But the current money inflow into the market is short-term and unstable, so the index could fall next week when investments are withdrawn from shares," An said.

SE Asia Stocks-Thailand falls for second day; Philippines up on inflows

Thai shares fell for a second session on Wednesday, with politically-sensitive stocks such as SC Asset Corporation  under selling pressure amid
escalating anti-government protests while inflows sent Philippine shares to three-month highs.
Thai SET index  ended down 0.4 percent after Tuesday's 0.5 percent loss as protestors escalated their rally a day after five people were killed in gunbattles in Bangkok while a Thai court ruled late on Wednesday to keep an emergency decree in Bangkok.
Shares of SC Asset shed 3.6 percent and Advanced Info Service  slid nearly 1 percent after the leader of anti-government protesters in Bangkok said they would target assets linked to the family of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.  
Thai analysts said the prolonged political problems and slowing domestic economy could result in weaker corporate earnings growth of 8-15 percent this year, according to a survey conducted by the Securities Analysts Association.
 The Philippine index  ended up 1.6 percent at 6,294.62, the highest since Nov. 18. Ayala Land shares  jumped 5.3 percent, the second biggest percentage gainer on the index, following its release of strong 2013 earnings this week.
Foreign investors bought a net 1.08 billion peso ($24.22 million) on the day, taking their net buying in the month to about $53 million. Philippine shares have risen 6.9 percent so far this year, among Asia's outperformers.
Stocks in Singapore , Malaysia , Indonesia  and Vietnam  rose in line with broader Asia, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan   trading 0.24 percent higher.

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
