Vietnam index advances 1.08 pct in low volume
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI ended up 1.08 percent on Monday, the second consecutive gain, with most big-cap shares rising on expectation of positive corporate earnings, but liquidity was low.
Petrovietnam Gas GAS.HM advanced 1.6 percent, VietinBank CTG.HM rallied 3.14 percent and top dairy product maker Vinamilk VNM.HM gained 1.74 percent.
BaoViet Holdings BVH.HM , the country's largest insurer, outperformed the market with a 6.9-percent rise to the highest in more than three years on solid foreign buying.
The gain was due in part to the expectation that the government would remove the 49-percent foreign holdings restrictions in insurance companies.
The index extended earlier gains as investors expected good business results from listed firms in the second quarter, analysts said.
A total of 140.49 million shares changed hand on Monday, or a drop of 35.22 percent from the previous session.
