Vietnam index falls 0.3 pct; BIDV outperforms on dividend plan

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   lost 0.32 percent on Friday, coming down from a near four-month high the previous day, with lender BIDV  bucking the trend to reach its highest since May 7 on news of its 2013 dividend plan.
The bank was up 3.38 percent, with 17.4 million shares traded, the highest volume in four months, Reuters data showed.  
BIDV will pay 850 dong ($0.04) per stock, or 8.5 percent of face value, as its 2013 dividend for shareholders, the Hanoi-based lender said on its website on Friday
The index may continue to fall as trade has been slow and selling was on the increase in the past few sessions, analysts and traders said.

SE Asia Stocks -Most fall ahead of holidays  

Most Southeast Asian stock markets edged lower on Friday, with the Indonesian benchmark posting its first weekly loss in a month, ahead of a market
holiday next week, while Singapore shares slipped after worse-than-expected June industrial production data.
The region saw a range-bound session ahead of holidays in the major sharemarkets. Singapore will be closed on Monday, Malaysia on Monday and Tuesday and the Philippines on Tuesday.  

The Indonesian market will remain closed for the entire week.
Jakarta's composite index   fell 0.2 percent, closing the week a tad 0.04 percent lower. Foreign investors were net sellers in Bank Mandiri   and Bank Rakyat Indonesia  which were among the top actively traded stocks.
Investors remained cautious as they awaited the formation of the new government and a court hearing on losing presidential candidate Prabowo Subianto's lawsuit challenging the result amid concerns over growing fuel subsidy problems pressuring the country's budget.
The Singapore index  posted its first fall in nine days and lost 0.1 percent. It, however, extended gains for the fifth week, rising 1.2 percent, and was Southeast Asia's best performer.
Data showed Singapore's manufacturing output rose 0.4 percent in June, well below expectations, which analysts said reflected weaker demand due to uncertain global outlook.
Philippine shares   recouped most of their early losses amid inflows in telecoms stocks and outflows in banking shares.

Globe Telecoms   ended at a more than five-month high and Metropolitan Bank & Trust    fell to a near one-month low.
Others in the region finished the week in positive territory. Among the outperformers, Thai shares  marked a sixth consecutive week of gains, adding 0.6 percent amid a clearer political outlook.

AseanAffairs   04 January 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
