Vietnam index drops 1.3 pct, most big caps lose

 Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  ended down 1.29 percent on Monday with most blue-chip shares losing, due partly to the decline of energy stocks following a change in state oil and gas group PetroVietnam's management.
Petrovietnam Gas  GAS.HM , the country's second-biggest firm by market value fell 3.23 percent to close at 60,000 dong ($2.75) per share, the lowest since May 18. Other energy shares also ended down.
GAS stocks lost after the government relieved the chairman of state oil and gas group PetroVietnam, the parent firm, from his post to move him to the Industry and Trade Ministry, the government's news website said.
Most banking shares dropped including Hanoi-based Vietcombank  VCB.HM , the country's top firm by market value, that declined 3.14 percent and lender BIDV  BID.HM  with a 1.57-percent loss.
VietinBank  CTG.HM  bucked the trend to rise 1.83 percent and steel producer Hoa Phat Group  HPG.HM  ended up 0.99 percent after the firm said its first-half net profit rose 1.6 percent from a year earlier to 1.9 trillion dong ($87.08 million).  
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  .VNI  at the close .

SE Asia Stocks - Malaysia retreats; Philippines snaps gains on outflows

Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Monday, with the Malaysian benchmark drifting into negative territory and the Philippine index ending a six-session rising streak, amid foreign-led selling as expectations of a hike in U.S. interest rates kept markets edgy.
The Kuala Lumpur composite index  .KLSE , which climbed at  one point to its highest since July 3, ended the day down 0.2 percent. The Malaysian bourse said it recorded a net foreign selling worth 121 million ringgit ($31.80 million).
The Philippine index  .PSI  shed 1 percent on Monday after six sessions of gains through Thursday. Foreign investors sold a net 848 million peso ($18.71 million).

The Philippine market was closed on Friday for Eid al-Fitr celebrations.
Stocks in Thailand  .SETI  extended their slides for a fifth straight session. Shares of Siam Commercial Bank  SCB.BK  fell 0.7 percent ahead of the company's financial results for the April-June quarter after market hours.

Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said last week the U.S. central bank remains on track to raise interest rates this year.
Bucking the trend, Singapore  .FTSTI  rose 0.6 percent after a holiday on Friday. Gains came amid pent-up demand and rotational interests among penny caps, broker NRA Capital said in a report.
