Vietnam index dips 1.1 pct on profit taking, volume up
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI snapped a four-day advance to end down 1.13 percent on Wednesday due to profit taking, with losses in most big-cap shares while volume reached the highest in nearly three weeks.
Hanoi-based Vietcombank VCB.HM , Vietnam's top firm by market value, led the decliners with a 3.7-percent loss, followed by Petrovietnam Gas GAS.HM that dropped 2.31 percent and top dairy product maker Vinamilk VNM.HM that dipped 1.71 percent.
Top insurer BaoViet Holdings BVH.HM bucked the trend with a 5.77-percent jump to close at 55,000 dong ($2.52), a 27-month high.
BVH shares advanced on hope of foreign ownership limit easing and after South Korea's Samsung life insurance unit 032830.KS expressed interest in the Hanoi-based firm.
As many as 191.33 million shares changed hand, the highest level since June 19, Reuters data show. The index retreated after a four-day gain ended on Tuesday.

SE Asia Stocks-Singapore leads fall on China stock market rout
Southeast Asian stock markets slid on Wednesday as tumbling Chinese shares spurred late selling, with weaknesses in Chinese-linked stocks sending the Singapore benchmark to its lowest close in more than a week.
Singapore's key Straits Times Index .FTSTI fell 1.7 percent to the lowest close since June 29 and its biggest single-day loss since Dec. 16, 2014. Shares of Hongkong Land Holdings HKLD.SI dropped 4.7 percent and CapitaLand CATL.SI shed 4 percent, among top losers on the guage.
Stocks in Malaysia .KLSE hit a more than one-week low and the Philippines .PSI touched a one-month low, both posting net foreign outflows worth 374 million ringgit ($98.3 million) and 888 million peso ($19.6 million), respectively.
Thai stocks .SETI eased 0.9 percent to a near seven-month closing low, Indonesia .JKSE extended its slide for a third day while Vietnam .VNI posted the first fall in five trading days.
Selloffs in Chinese markets hit global equities on Wednesday while caution prevailed over the Greek debt uncertainty.
The Thai central bank said a fall in Chinese stocks weighed on market sentiment while most Thai invesments in Chinese assets were in deposits and debentures, while the Indonesian central bank said the Greek crisis has had no significant impact on Indonesian financial markets.
