Vietnam index dips 0.4 pct; PVT falls most in a month

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  reversed a streak of six gains, closing down 0.37 percent on Monday, with Petrovietnam Transportation Corp 
dropping the most in one month on fund's selling, analysts said.
Market Vectors Vietnam exchange-traded fund  said it was conducting its second-quarter portfolio restructuring this week.
PVT lost 4.65 percent to end at 12,300 dong ($0.58) per share, the biggest fall since May 13, while its volume hit a two-month high, Reuters data showed, as Saigon Securities Incorp  estimated the fund would sell 8.4 million of PVT shares.  
But the fund buying other shares, including those of Ho Chi Minh City-based lender Sacombank , kept the index from a steep fall, analysts said.
Liquidity will be solid this week thanks to the fund's restructuring, said analyst Tran Thang Long of BIDV Securities.

SE Asia Stocks-Most weaker; Thai energy shares up on strong oil

Thai shares touched near eight-month highs on Monday as strong crude prices boosted stocks of energy explorer PTT Exploration and Production , while Indonesian shares fell to their lowest in one week due to foreign-led selling in large caps.
Bangkok's SET index closed up 1.09 percent at 1,471.85, the highest since Oct. 18. PTT Exploration shares jumped 4.1 percent, their best gain since December and its parent firm PTT    was up 2.1 percent.
 "The market today was about rotational plays, mainly into energy sector. PTTEP was strong because it is one of the best direct play into the strong crude oil market," said Pichai Lertsupongkij, a senior analyst of Thanachart Securities.
Jakarta's composite index   was down 0.8 percent at 4,885.46, the lowest close since June 9.     

Shares of top four firms by market value dropped after foreign-led selling, including Astra International , Bank Central Asia , Bank Rakyat Indonesia   and Telkom Indonesia , according to Thomson Reuters data.
 In Manila, large cap telecommunications shares fell due to outflows, stock exchange data showed.
Shares of Alliance Global   dropped 2.1 percent after a net foreign selling of 247 million peso ($5.6 million) and Philippine Long Distance Telephone   eased 0.6 percent as foreign investors sold a net 148 million peso ($3.4 million).
Other markets were little changed in line with Asian stock markets   amid concerns about the insurgency in Iraq.

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
