Vietnam index ends down 0.1 pct, rebound expected
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI ended down 0.12 percent on Friday, with most big-cap shares falling in a correction after two consecutive gains earlier this week, led by the banking sector.
Four of the six listed banks dropped, including Hanoi-based Vietcombank VCB.HM , the biggest listed firm by market value, with a 1.94-percent decrease, and lender Sacombank STB.HM that lost 2.12 percent.
The index, which posted the biggest gain in nearly three weeks on Wednesday and extended the rise the next day, was expected to rebound in coming sessions, traders said.

SE Asia Stocks-Thai SET index worst performer on week
Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Friday, with the Thai benchmark sliding to a near 14-month closing low amid disappointing corporate earnings and Singapore's key index hitting a more than one-week low after weak production data.
The Thai SET index .SETI ended the day down 0.5 percent at 1,438.08, the lowest close since May 30, 2014. It dropped 2.8 percent on the week, the region's worst performer.
Shares of PTT Exploration and Production Pcl PTTEP.BK , which posted a 94 percent drop in second quarter earnings, declined 1.9 percent. Energy shares .SETEN were broadly weak amid a fall in global oil prices.
Singapore's Straits Times Index .FTSTI was down 0.1 percent at 3,352.65, the lowest close since July 15, with a worse-than-expected industrial production in June hurting sentiment.
Stocks in the region ended the week little changed. Malaysia .KLSE was down 0.4 percent on the week and Indonesia .JKSE was 0.3 percent lower. The Philippines .PSI rose 0.4 percent on the week, with Vietnam .VNI gaining 0.4 percent.
