Vietnam index ends up 1.43 pct, volume jumps

 Vietnam benchmark's VN Index  .VNI  climbed 1.43 percent to close at 625.22 points on Monday, the third straight gain, as most blue chips gained in high volume.
 Petrovietnam Gas  GAS.HM  led the gainers with a 2.36-percent rise, followed by PetroVietnam Drilling & Well Service Corp  PVD.HM  that jumped 6.42 percent to its four-month high on the firm's plan to pay a 30-percent dividend for 2014.
Top insurer BaoViet Holdings  BVH.HM  outperformed the market to gain 6.81 percent, ending at 48,600 dong ($2.23) each, the highest since March 19, 2014.
The shares jumped after comments by Vietnam's finance ministry in New York that the foreign ownership ceiling in insurance companies would be fully lifted, analysts said.
As many as 179.75 million shares changed hands, up 9.24 percent from last Friday, Reuters data show.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  .VNI  at the close.

SE Asia Stocks - Most fall on Greek woes, outflows; Philippines near 1-month low

Major Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Monday amid Greek debt worries and fund outflows, with Philippines sliding to a near one-month low, while Malaysia was at a near one-week bottom due to concerns over graft allegations linked to the Prime Minister.
The Philippines' bourse said it had net foreign selling of  418 million peso ($9.3 million). Selling in shares of Ayala Land  ALI.PS  and Globe Telecom  GLO.PS  pulled the index  .PSI  to its lowest close since June 10.
Share price weaknesses also came a day ahead of Philippine inflation, which is expected to have remained below the central bank's target range, giving policymakers scope to cut interest rates if needed.  
The Kuala Lumpur composite index  .KLSE  shed 1 percent to 1,717.05, the lowest close since June 30. Foreign investors sold shares worth a net 199 million ringgit ($52.3 million) as the ringgit  MYR=MY  hit a 16-year low on the day.  
Two of Malaysia's main opposition parties on Sunday demanded an emergency sitting of parliament to discuss Prime Minister Najib Razak's future as tensions mounted over a report that linked him to probes into alleged corruption involving state fund 1MDB.  
Indexes in Indonesia  .JKSE  and Thailand  .SETI  both dropped more than 1 percent, with net foreign outflows at 174.5 billion rupiah ($13 million) and 1.42 billion baht ($42 million), respectively.
Singapore's Straits Times Index  .FTSTI  ended the day down 0.3 percent, erasing most of its early losses, as large-caps such as Singapore Telecoms  STEL.SI  rebounded.  
Vietnam  .VNI  bucked the trend, rising for a third day.
 Market                     Current         Prev Close       Pct Move
 Singapore                3332.94            3342.73              -0.29
 Kuala Lumpur          1717.05            1734.24              -0.99
 Bangkok                  1473.23            1489.59              -1.10
 Jakarta                     4916.74            4982.91              -1.33
 Manila                     7455.15            7535.30              -1.06
 Ho Chi Minh             625.22              616.43             +1.43

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber
