Vietnam index closes up 0.3 pct on solid demand

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index ended up 0.3 percent on Friday as investors' buying demand erased losses caused by profit taking in other shares and could provide support for further gains, analysts said.

The index lost by midday as investors took profit from recent gains in stocks, but bounced back to close at 586.48 points as money inflow was solid in the afternoon session, said manager Doan Minh Quan at ACB Securities.  

"Funds are still within the market," Quan said.

Food producer Masan Group  led the gains, with shares jumping 4.08 percent, followed by Petrovietnam Drilling and Well Services Co  that climbed 4.49 percent.

The index, which has advanced nearly 3 percent in the past week, is likely to rise further, with a resistance level of between 590-600 points, analysts said.
