Vietnam index ends near 2-month high on earnings hopes

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  ended up 0.72 percent at its highest in nearly two months, extending a rising streak so far this week as investors
bought stocks ahead of second-quarter earnings results.    
The index closed at 576.4 points, its highest since April 29 and the fourth straight daily gain, with volume jumping 28 percent from the previous day to 123.94 million shares, supported by insurance and energy shares, Reuters data showed.
Baoviet Holdings , Vietnam's largest insurer, rose the most, gaining 3.98 percent, followed by Petrovietnam Gas, the country's biggest listed firm, with a 1.89 percent increase.
Adding to the buying momentum, foreign investors bought 10.1 million shares, or about three times the 3.7 million shares they sold, according to the exchange's data.
Saigon Securities forecast Petrovietnam Gas' net income this year to rise nearly 11 percent to 12.49 trillion dong ($586 million), excluding debt repayments from state utility Vietnam Electricity.
The first instalment of the debt, estimated at $180 million and which came from dry gas sales to power plants in 2009-2011, was expected in the second half of 2014, and that "could create an one-off earnings surprise", the brokerage said in a report on Thursday.

SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia rebounds; commodities lead regional gains

Stocks in Indonesia rose on Thursday as large cap banks recovered from recent losses, while shares of energy and palm plantation firms outperformed in Southeast Asia in line with strong crude and palm oil prices.
Jakarta's composite index  closed up 0.7 percent, rebounding from around seven-week closing low hit on Wednesday.

Shares of Bank Central Asia  gained 2.8 percent and Bank Mandiri   was up 1 percent. Both fell on Wednesday.
The market witnessed a net foreign outflow worth of 39.3 billion rupiah ($3.3 million) after Wednesday's net outflow worth 165 billion rupiah ($13.99 million), Thomson Reuters data showed.  
Near term uncertainty related to the presidential election on July 9 weighed on Indonesian assets. The rupiah   fell to its weakest in four-and-a-half months on Thursday.
Gains in the region included shares of Thailand's energy explorer PTT Exploration and Production , Indonesia's palm plantation firm Astra Agro Lesta   and Malaysia's newly-listed palm oil company Boustead Plantations .
 Brent crude oil held steady near $114 a barrel on Thursday, with traders watching developments in Iraq for the possibility of export disruption from OPEC's second-largest producer while Malaysian palm oil futures stretched gains into a fourth day.
Foreign fund flows were mixed in the region, according to Thomson Reuters and stock exchange data.
Malaysia noted a modest outflow worth a net 15.75 million ringgit ($4.9 million), Thailand recorded a net outflow worth 49 million baht ($1.5 million) and the Philippines brought in a net inflow worth 123.7 million peso ($2.8 million).

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
