Vietnam index falls 1.1 pct, volume above 3-mth high

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   dropped 1.14 percent on Thursday, as strong selling in most shares boosted volume to the highest in more than three months.
Most blue chips lost ground, led by PetroVietNam Gas , Vietnam's largest listed firm, that ended down 0.9 percent at 110,000 dong ($5.20) each, the lowest in one week.
Property firm Vingroup   also fell 2.11 percent, and insurer Baoviet Holdings   lost 3 percent.

Strong selling boosted liquidity, with volume on Thursday totalling 152.8 million shares, the highest since April 1, Reuters data showed.
While the index ticked up in the past sessions, buying demand has weakened as stocks became more expensive, said manager Nguyen The Minh at Viet Capital Securities.
"With strong selling near the break at the midday, many  investors offloaded shares in fear in the afternoon session, but solid bargain hunting around the 580-585 points is a positive sign to the market," Minh said.

    Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at the close

SE Asia Stocks - Indonesia hits 13-month peak; vote outcome watched

Indonesia's benchmark hit an over 13-month closing high on Thursday as foreign inflows sent large-caps soaring, but caution remained over the outcome of Wednesday's presidential election.
Jakarta's composite index  ended up 1.5 percent, erasing some of its earlier 2.8 percent intra-day gain, as both Jakarta Governor Joko "Jokowi" Widodo and ex-general Prabowo Subianto declared themselves the election winner.
Despite the uncertainty, investors appeared to be preparing for the probability of a win for Widodo, who is perceived to be more market-friendly.
 "We do not wait until the official outcome is out to confirm the Jokowi victory as normally margin of error from quick count  results are 0.5-1 percent," broker Ciptadana Securities said in a report.
 The market saw net foreign inflows worth 4.2 trillion rupiah ($363 million), the biggest daily inflow in almost four months, while the rupiah   hit a seven-week high.
Foreign investors bought large-caps such as Bank Mandiri    and Semen Indonesia   while shares linked to Prabowo, such as coal miner Bumi Resources   and media  arm Visi Media Asia   fell.  
Other Southeast Asian markets mostly rose after the Federal Reserve indicated it was in no rush to begin raising interest rates.  
The Thai SET index  extended its gain for an eleventh day to its highest close in thirteen months. Banking shares such as Siam Commercial Bank   were among those actively traded ahead of April-June earnings results due from next week.
The benchmark ended the week up 1.5 percent, notching up a fourth week of gains.  
 HSBC raised Thailand to 'overweight' from 'underweight', saying that political risk has subsided as the military-led  government restores confidence, including spending powers and setting up an economic committee to prioritise development.
"We think consensus has been too pessimistic in cutting corporate earnings," HSBC Global Research said in its equity strategy third quarter 2014 report.
The Thai stock market will be closed on Friday for a public holiday and will resume on Monday.

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. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

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
