Vietnam index down 0.1 pct, Vinamilk's gain limits fall

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   ticked down 0.08 percent by the close on Thursday, with gains in dairy products maker Vinamilk  <VNM.HM>  cancelling falls in most other shares ahead of a central bank ruling on loans for stock investments.
Vinamilk, Vietnam's second biggest listed firm by market value, jumped 3.96 percent to close at 105,000 dong ($4.9), a level unseen since Nov. 4. Most other big-caps lost ground, but marginally and in moderate volume.
Sentiment was cautious amid lack of supportive news, and ahead of the implementation of a central bank circular that will cap banks' loans to customers who use the money to invest in stocks at 5 percent of a bank's registered capital, analysts said.
PetroVietNam Gas , the country's top firm by market  value, led the decliners with a 1.27 percent fall, while Hanoi-based lender Vietcombank   fell 1.34 percent.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at the close

SE Asia Stocks -Philippine off record high, Malaysia falls for 2nd day

Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Thursday, with the Philippine benchmark ending off an all-time high and the Malaysian index declining for a second straight day, as investors cut exposures to energy shares with oil prices near six-year lows.  
The Philippine main index    closed down 0.6 percent after rising to a record high of 7,736.97 earlier in the session following better-than-expected fourth-quarter GDP growth.     
The fourth-quarter GDP grew a seasonally adjusted 2.5 percent over the prior three months and an annual 6.9 percent, beating economists' forecasts. Growth for the full-year came in at 6.1 percent.  
"Strong momentum implied by upbeat 4Q14 GDP and ensuing upgrade in GDP's trajectory bode well for risk asset markets," Citi Research said in a report.

It upgraded 2015 growth outlook to 6.7 percent from 6.3 percent.
Among losers, Petron Corp   dropped 3.5 percent and Energy Development Corp   slipped 2.4 percent amid foreign-led selling, the Philippine bourse said in a report.
 The Malaysian index   was down 0.8 percent after the 0.4 percent loss on Wednesday, with Tenaga Nasional  and Sapurakencana Petroleum   among actively traded stocks.
Sentiment in the region was broadly weak in line with Asia  after the U.S. Federal Reserve took an upbeat view of the world's largest economy and signalled it was on track to raise interest rates this year.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
