Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  fell 0.89 percent to close at 549.76 points on Friday, dropping for the third consecutive session as investors sold blue chips
for quick profits.

 "This profit-taking should be short-term only, and the VN Index would rebound soon," said analyst Nguyen Hoang Phuong at Ho Chi Minh City Securities.
BIDV , Vietnam's largest listed bank by assets, led the losses, with shares dropping 5.68 percent, followed by top insurer Baoviet Holdings  that fell 3.34 percent.
The selling followed gains in January, in which the index advanced around 10 percent.

The VN Index could rise 17-20 percent this year to 590-600 points, given gradual economic improvements and ongoing reforms, Saigon Securities Incorp  said a report seen by Reuters on Friday.

Saigon Securities was the country's second-largest brokerage firm by market share in 2013.
