Vietnam's benchmark VN Index fell 0.2 percent at close on Wednesday as investors remained cautious about the country's uncertain economy and awaited publication of second-quarter earnings reports, traders said.
Financials were among the biggest losers with Sacombank falling 2.9 percent, Vietcombank down 1.1 percent and Hanoi-based Vietinbank sliding 0.5 percent.
Energy firms PetroVietnam , the biggest company by capitalisation and PetroVietnam Drilling extended gains made in early trade, rising 1.7 percent and 0.6 percent respectively.
Second quarter earnings reports would reveal which shares were competitive, traders said, adding that investors were keeping a close eye on the struggling real estate sector, which could get a boost from a recent stimulus package and state plans to tackle debt problems among the country's lenders.

Indonesia's main stock index ended two sessions of losses to rise 1.7 percent on Wednesday as battered banking shares rebounded while
Thai stocks reversed early gains to fall after late selling.
Thai benchmark SET index ended at a two-week closing low of 1,388.41, and was southeast Asia's worst performer with a
year-to-date loss of 0.3 percent.
Thai analysts lowered their end-2013 target for the SET index to 1,569, citing worries over the slowing Chinese economy
and a stimulus cut in the United States.
The sell-off in Thai stocks that started in mid-May was feeding into a downgrade cycle and the market now looked
oversold on a regional perspective, analysts at Macquarie Equities Research wrote in a report dated July 9.
