Vietnam index ends near 9-month high, banks jump

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  jumped 2.4 percent to close near a nine-month high on Thursday, lifted by robust trading in large-cap stocks and led by banking shares that gained on buying by foreign investors.  
Shares in Vietcombank  VCB.HM , the country's top listed firm by market value, advanced 6.19 percent to a record high of 51,500 dong ($2.36), while Hanoi-based BIDV  BID.HM  climbed 6.85 percent to an all-time high of 23,400 dong.
Net foreign buying of banking shares and investors expecting the cap on foreign ownership in banks to be relaxed contributed to the gains, analysts said.
 The government said last week it would lift the foreign ownership cap in many listed firms as of Sept. 1, but the 30-percent cap on banks remains unchanged.
 The easing "reflects the determination of renovating the economy and integration", State Securities Commission Chairman Vu Bang was quoted in a statement as saying at a Vietnam investment promotion conference in New York on Wednesday.
Other blue chips also rose, including Petrovietnam Gas  GAS.HM  that rallied 1.61 percent and Vietnam's top property firm Vingroup  VIC.HM , which gained 1.15 percent.
"Investors should think carefully before taking a decision because the trading volume was relatively modest compared with the significant rise of the market index," said Nguyen The Minh, a technical analyst at Viet Capital Securities.
The index ended at 605.70 points, the session's high and the highest since Oct. 14, 2014, while volume reached 136.67 million shares, below the five-day average of 140.07 million.
Vietnam's securities market is the fastest growing in Southeast Asia, with a 8.69 percent growth.

SE Asia Stocks-Singapore retreats; Thai banks suffer sell-off

Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on thin volume on Thursday amid the Greek debt uncertainty, but Singapore shares retreated ahead of factory activity data and Thai key index closed below key 1,500 level due to sell-off in banking shares.
Singapore's key Straits Times Index  .FTSTI  erased early gain and ended a tad 0.1 percent lower. Trading volume fell to just 70 percent of a 30-day average before June Purchasing Managers' index  SGPMI=ECI  which is due out later in the day.
Thai SET index  .SETI  fell 0.9 percent to 1,491.62, the lowest close since June 19. June consumer confidence which fell for a sixth month dampened investment sentiment and fuelled more selling in economic proxies, including banks.  
Foreign investors offloaded shares worth a net 4.4 billion baht ($130.29 million), the biggest since February 25, stock exchange and Thomson Reuters data showed.
 Kasikornbank's  KBANK.BK  shares, the most actively traded by turnover, dropped 5.3 percent. Banking shares  .SETB  pulled deep into an overbought territory, with a 14-day Relative Strength Index of 22.4 at the close.
Stocks in Indonesia  .JKSE  was up 0.8 percent, trimming some early gains, after a Bank Indonesia survey showed consumers were less optimistic in June than the previous month as they expect the economy to continue to slow in the next six months.
Others in Southeast Asia appeared followed Asia higher though widening cracks in Chinese stocks and Greece's standoff with its creditors capped gains.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 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
