SE Asia Stocks - Most higher; Vietnam leads regional gains on week

Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Friday as inflows into large-caps and financials helped the Indonesian benchmark to a two-week high while Vietnam outperformed in the region amid active buying in banking and energy shares.
The Jakarta composite index  .JKSE  closed up 0.8 percent at  4,982.91, the highest close since June 19. It posted a weekly gain of 1.2 percent, trimming its year-to-date loss to 4.7 percent, still the worst performer in Asia.
Foreign investors were net buyers of index heavyweights such as Indofood Sukses Makmur  INDF.JK , which jumped 3.5 percent  and Bank Mandiri  BMRI.JK , which rose 1 percent.
 Investors in the region stayed on the sidelines ahead of Greece's Sunday referendum which may prompt its exit from the euro zone, while Asian stocks fell amid a rout in China's stock markets.  
Trading volume fell in most stock exchanges in Southeast Asia including Singapore  .FTSTI  and the Philippines  .PSI . Both saw their trading volume at less than two-thirds of a 30-day average.
