Vietnam index drops, tracking Asian markets after China fall
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI closed down 0.92 percent on Thursday, snapping a five-day
winning streak in a technical correction, in line with regional markets after Chinese stocks slid. MTKS/GLOB
Dairy products maker Vinamilk VNM.HM , the country's top firm by market value, led the decliners with a 1.53 percent fall, followed by PetroVietnam Gas GAS.HM that dropped 2.34 percent on lower global oil prices.
The index, Southeast Asia's best performer last year, has gained a combined 3.8 percent over the past five sessions,
helped partly by foreign buying of Vietnamese shares worth a net 369.3 billion dong ($16.55 million) since Feb. 18.

SE Asia Stocks-Mostly weak as China stocks tumble
Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Thursday as a plunge in Chinese stocks and weak global oil market spurred late selling, but the Thai benchmark eked out modest gains, helped by selective buying in dividend-yielding stocks.
The key SET index .SETI inched up 0.11 percent. It fell in early trading after data showed the country's exports contracted more than expected in January in the face of sluggish global demand and China's slowdown.
Among winners, Bangkok Bank BBL.BK posted its eighth straight session of gains with a 1.5 percent jump, partly
reflecting an attractive dividend yield.
The Jakarta composite index .JKSE ended flat after the central bank said it had room to cut its benchmark policy rate
Stocks in Singapore .STI , Malaysia .KLSE and Vietnam .VNI all finished the day lower in line with Asia, with a fall in global oil prices keeping investors in the region edgy.
Fund flows in the region were mixed amid expectations of a possible delay in interest rate hikes in the United States due to weak U.S. economic data.
Malaysia and Thailand saw net foreign buying worth 120 million ringgit ($28.46 million) and 115 million baht ($3.22
million), respectively, while Indonesia witnessed a net foreign selling of 23.8 billion rupiah ($1.78 million).
The Philippine stock market .PSI was closed for a public holiday, reopening on Friday.
