Vietnam index ends down 0.4 pct but most shares up

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   closed down 0.42 percent on Wednesday, led by Hanoi-based Vietcombank, Vietnam's top listed firm by value, despite gains in most other equities.
Shares of lender Vietcombank snapped a streak of four gains to fall 3.05 percent from its record high close in the previous session, while food producer Masan Group  lost 3.59 percent and VietinBank   declined 1.57 percent.
But nearly half the total equities rebounded from Tuesday's profit taking session, following a chain of rallies that led the index to over a 10-week high at the start of the week.
Volume stood at 125.47 million on Wednesday, slightly below the five-day average of 129.04 million, Reuters data showed.     
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  at the close

SE Asia Stocks -Most rebound; Thai banks up after finmin rate view

Most Southeast Asian stock markets staged a mild rebound on Wednesday, with the Thai index recovering from a near five-month closing low in the previous session as the finance minister's comment on interest rates lifted banking shares.
Bangkok's SET index   ended the day up 0.4 percent at  1,482.07.
The banking subindex  rose 0.6 percent, led by large cap Kasikornbank   after Finance Minister Sommai Phasee said two recent interest rate cuts were already sufficient to help the struggling economy.  
The subindex had hit a more than one-year low on Tuesday as further decline in May consumer prices raised expectations of a likely interest rate cut at the central bank's monetary policy committee meeting on June 10.
 "The lower rate adds downside risk to net interest margins of banks and so, the market took the rate view positively," said senior analyst Pichai Lertsupongkij of Thanachart Securities.
 Indonesia was an underperformer, with Jakarta's composite index   sliding 1.6 percent to a near five-week closing low of 5,130.49.
 Banking shares were among most actively traded, led by Bank Rakyat Indonesia , which dropped 4 percent, partly reflecting concerns about non-performing loans of the sector.

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
