Vietnam index falls 1.4 pct on concerns over oil prices

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   .VNI  ended 1.4 percent lower on Thursday, dragged down by  falls in most shares as low oil prices kept investors wary.
Oil prices succumbed to concerns of a supply overhang, erasing modest early gains as analysts said a persistent global surplus of crude would keep pressuring the market. 
Energy stocks fell with PetroVietnam Gas  GAS.HM  down 2.28 percent and PetroVietnam Drilling & Well Service Corp  PVD.HM  lower 5.67 percent.  
 Lender BIDV  BID.HM  plunged 6.51 percent on worries over  its loans to property group HAGL  HAG.HM , whose financial solvency has been a matter of concern to investors. HAGL shares dropped 6.67 percent to a record low of 8,400 dong ($0.3753).
 Analysts expect the index to decline further to 500 points due to a lack of supportive news, while investors keep an eye on the ongoing Party Congress. 
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  .VNI  at the close

                VN Index   521.88              
        PREV. CLOSE   529.44

SE Asia Stocks-Fall on oil woes; Philippines sees worst drop in almost 2 weeks

Southeast Asian stocks fell on Thursday as a drop in oil prices towards 12-year lows unnerved investors, taking losses in the Philippines to the worst in almost two weeks while Malaysia hit a more-than-four-month low ahead of a rate decision.
The Philippine main index  .PSI  finished down 2.8 percent, the biggest single-day decline since Jan. 11.  The index slipped into the oversold zone, with the 14-day Relative Strength Index below 30, similar to its peers in Singapore  .STI  and Vietnam  .VNI .
Stocks in Malaysia  .KLSE  fell 1 percent to the lowest  close since Sept. 8. The central bank, after market hours, said  it kept the benchmark interest rate unchanged at 3.25 percent, as expected.
Among losers in the region, shares of Keppel Corp  KPLM.SI  eased 0.6 percent ahead of results. After market close it  reported a drop in revenue and net profit in the fourth quarter due to weak oil prices.  
The region posted outflows on the day, with Malaysia seeing an eleventh day of foreign selling worth a net 264 million ringgit ($60.37 million), stock exchange data showed.
Foreign selling in the Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia was relatively modest, worth a net 962 million peso ($20.10 million), 506.27 million baht ($13.96 million) and 110 billion rupiah ($7.91 million) respectively.
