Vietnam index at 6-wk high; GAS up on possible stake sale

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  edged up 0.23 percent to close at 566.89 points on Tuesday, a six-week high, with shares of PetroVietNam Gas   gaining on market talks of a possible stake sale to foreign investors, analysts said.
Tuesday's close is the highest since April 29.
Shares in GAS, Vietnam's biggest listed firm, closed up 2.88 percent at a record high of 107,000 dong ($5.05) on talks that
state oil group Petrovietnam could sell part of its 97-percent stakes in GAS to foreigners.
An analyst said Petrovietnam could sell GAS shares at 100,000-110,000 dong each.
 Property firm HAGL  <HAG.HM>  also advanced 0.83 percent after it signed a 6.3-trillion-dong ($297 million) agriculture project with two Vietnamese firms to expand investment in the husbandry sector, the company said in a statement on Tuesday.
 But investors have begun taking profit from many stocks following recent gains of the index, so falling shares outnumbered those that gained on the market, said analyst Le Dac An with Tan Viet Securities.
 Foreign investors have trimmed their net buying of Vietnamese equities in the past four sessions, with net purchase amount reaching 40 billion dong on Tuesday, compared with 54 billion dong in their average daily value so far in June, the exchange's data showed.

SE Asia Stocks-Thai shares near 8-month highs; Indonesia outperforms  

Thai shares rose to a near eight-month high on Tuesday, buoyed by a rally in Thai Airways after the military government said it would tackle expenses at state firms, while the Malaysian index ended at a near two-week high on plantation stocks.
Thai key SET index   finished up 0.8 percent at 1,469.19, the highest since Oct. 18, 2013. Thai Airways International  shares jumped 8.2 percent, their best gain in almost five months.   
Malaysia's main index   rose 0.7 percent to 1,876.61, the highest closes since May 29. Shares of plantation firms PPB Group  and Kuala Lumpur Kepong  were among top percentage gainers.
Indonesian shares outperformed in the region as banking shares, such as Bank Rakyat Indonesia  and Bank Mandiri   , recovered from recent losses. Jakarta's composite Index  gained 1.3 percent to its highest in about two weeks.
 The market focus was Bank Indonesia's meeting on Thursday  when the central bank is expected to keep its benchmark policy  rate unchanged to maintain economic growth amid growing pressure on its exports, a Reuters poll showed.  
 Philippine shares were among weak spots after data showed April's exports hit a three-month low. The Philippine main index   eased 0.4 percent, led by losses in large caps including   SM Investment   and Ayala Land .

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
