Vietnam index rises to 1-wk closing high, banks in focus

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  rose 1.23 percent on Friday to close at its highest in a week, with banks outperforming the market amid foreign investors-led buying.
 Hanoi-based Vietcombank , the country's top bank by market value, climbed 3.15 percent, lender BIDV   rallied 6.1 percent, and VietinBank , Vietnam's biggest
partly-private bank by assets, rose 3.51 percent.  
The combined trading volume of all six banking shares accounted for nearly 14 percent of the total market volume of more than 300 stocks, partially due to solid buying from foreign investors.
Despite gains in a majority of shares, including a 1.27 percent gain in PetroVietNam Gas , Vietnam's top firm by market value, total trading volume dropped to a more than
seven-month low of 64.3 million shares.
