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.
