Vietnam index ends up 0.8 pct, energy, banks lead

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  ended up 0.81 percent on Monday as gains in banking and energy stocks helped overcome losses in other sectors due to profit-taking.
Hanoi-based lender BIDV  climbed 6.9 percent on the back of positive 2014 results announcement on Saturday and PetroVietNam Gas , Vietnam's top firm by market value, jumped 6.76 percent on a share buyback plan of as much as 1 trillion dong ($46.9 million).  
Vietnam's central bank on Monday announced several mergers, including those with BIDV, Vietcombank   and VietinBank , expected in 2015 in one of its biggest moves to consolidate and restructure a clogged banking sector plagued by bad debt.

Trading volume surged to a high of more than three weeks at 135 million shares, well above the five-day average level of 109 million, Reuters data showed.
The State Bank of Vietnam also said it would not delay a circular limiting bank loans to customers for investment in shares at 5 percent of a bank's registered capital, which analysts said have hurt inflows into Vietnam's equity markets.
The circular will be effective from Feb. 1, 2015.

SE Asia Stocks - Thai trims gains; Bank Mandiri leads Indonesia decline

Thai stocks edged higher on Monday, helped by selective buying in a results season, but large-cap energy stocks fell as declining oil prices dented earnings prospects.
Most other markets in Southeast Asia ended little-changed to weaker, with the Indonesian index  snapping a three-day winning streak and the Philippines  also retreating.
The Thai benchmark SET index   closed up 0.12 percent at 1,531.21, coming off an intraday high of 1,538.93. TMB Bank   rose almost 3 percent on expectations of good quarterly earnings.
Thai banks are due to report their quarterly results from this week.
PTT , the country's biggest energy firm, fell 1.5 percent to a low of 333 baht, while PTT Global Chemical  slipped 1.8 percent.
The Jakarta composite index  finished 0.6 percent down at 5,187.93, its lowest close in nearly one week.
State-owned Bank Mandiri   dropped 2.7 percent, its biggest single-day fall since Dec. 16. The bank will increase its capital by 9 trillion rupiah ($714.6 million), state enterprises minister Rini Soemarno said.
The Philippine main index   retreated from a record close on Friday as domestic investors cashed out from recent gainers such as Metropolitan Bank & Trust, stock exchange data showed.
The Philippine bourse reported net foreign inflows of 13.5 billion pesos ($300.5 million), mainly due to a series of block sales involving Ayala Land Inc , which raised about $357 million from a top-up share placement.
