Vietnam index ends down 0.9 pct on profit booking

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   retreated 0.93 percent at close on Monday to 556.80 points as investors, many of them on short-term investment
plans, secured profits from stocks after recent gains, analysts said.
 Equities on Vietnam's major stock exchange advanced in all sessions last week, and gains in some large-caps pushed the index up a combined 3.4 percent in the past five sessions, Reuters data showed.
Buying demand was also weak on Monday as prices were high after a streak of gains, while there was no news to boost  sentiment, said analyst Hoang Huy from ACB Securities.
But low volume on Monday indicated that investors did not want to sell shares by all means, and the index is likely to hover around the support level of 540-550 points, Huy added.
Losing shares almost tripled those that gained. PetroVietNam Gas , the country's largest listed firm, lost 1.03 percent and property firm Vingroup    fell 1.46 percent.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at the close (0801 GMT).

SE Asia Stocks-Most up; Thailand at 7-mth high on economic reform hopes

Southeast Asian shares mostly gained on Monday, with the Thai SET Index   rising 1.78 percent to its highest level since Oct. 31 as investors pinned
hopes on an upcoming economic reform plan while Philippine shares   rallied on bargain hunting.
 Investors anticipated a spurt in the Thai economy due to economic policies expected to be released on Wednesday by the National Council for Peace and Order, said CIMB Securities analyst Kasem Prunratanamala.
Banking stocks are likely to benefit especially from the plan as requirements for investment loans would grow in the coming months, Kasem added.
Siam Commercial Bank Pcl   led the gains on the Thai Stock Exchange with a 4.4 percent jump, the highest single-day rise since January, Reuters data showed.
Sentiment was also helped by a positive Moody's rating on the Thai economy and a weekend protest against the military coup that was not as bad as investors expected, Kasem said.
 Moody's on Monday affirmed Thailand's Baa1 sovereign rating, saying the country's fundamental credit strengths were solid
enough to weather cyclical pressures on the economy and recurring bouts of political instability.
Volumes on the Thai bourse were solid, with 10 billion shares changing hands, a level not seen in nearly seven months, Reuters data showed.
Analysts expected the SET Index to gain further, with the next resistance level seen between 1,460 and 1,480 points.
The Philippine stock market   also rallied on Monday as investors looked for bargains in shares that were at one-month lows, hit by weaker-than-expected economic growth data, said Manny Cruz, a market strategist with Asiasec Equities.
The Philippine SE Composite Index rose 0.94 percent, reversing falls since Thursday after data showed the country's economy unexpectedly grew at its slowest pace in two years in the first quarter.  
Telecommunications firm Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co   led the gainers, advancing 2.06 percent, followed by property firm Ayala Land   that rose 2.17 percent.
Other markets moved range-bound, with Singapore's Straits Times Index  edging up 0.19 percent, and the Jakarta SE Composite Index    0.37 percent higher.
Malaysia    and Vietnam bucked the trend, falling 0.49 percent and 0.93 percent respectively.

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
