Vietnam index ends near 4-mth high despite weak buying
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index closed up 0.76 percent at 602.06 points on Thursday, its highest level since April 8, but a low volume indicated weak buying.
Volume was below the five-day average level, with nearly 88 million shares changing hands, but a fourth of which was penny stocks of property firm FLC Group Co , Reuters data showed.
Earlier this week FLC was added to the VN30 list, the exchange's best performing shares.
"Despite widespread gains in blue chips, slim trade showed that money was not flowing into the market," said deputy manager Nguyen Tuan of An Binh Securities.
PetroVietNam Gas, Vietnam's largest listed firm, led the gainers, rising 0.88 percent, followed by dairy product maker Vinamilk that advanced 0.74 percent.

SE Asia Stocks -Most up on earnings; Indonesia gains for 2nd day
Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Thursday as strong quarterly earnings attracted buyers to selected shares, with the Indonesian index extending gains on a clearer political outlook and Thai Airways International shares surging in Bangkok.
Gainers in the region included Singapore's rig builder Keppel Corporation Ltd , Indonesia's Bank Central Asia and Thailand's retailer Big C Supercenter, among companies reporting strong April-June earnings.
Indonesia saw foreign inflows for a third straight day, adding a net 368.8 billion rupiah ($31.89 million), after Jakarta Governor Joko "Jokowi" Widodo was earlier this week declared the winner of the presidential election.
Jakarta's benchmark composite index closed up 0.1 percent after Wednesday's 0.2 percent gain.
In Bangkok, Thai Airways shares jumped 7.5 percent after the troubled flag airline said it was planning early retirement of some employees and aimed to cut overtime shifts and reduce other employee-related costs under a restructuring plan.
