Vietnam index ends at over 2-1/2 month high; seen gaining further

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   climbed 1.6 percent at the close on Friday, with robust trade in the afternoon session pushing the market to its highest since March 18.
Banking shares rebounded, with Vietcombank  , the country's biggest by market value, rising 1.35 percent, while Hanoi-based VietinBank   climbed 4.83 percent and BIDV  jumped 5.83 percent.
Analysts said investors returning to the market after some slight profit-taking sessions, especially in banking shares that hit record highs in early June, is a positive catalyst for some further inflows into shares at the start of next week.
 Volume hit 148 million shares on Friday, the highest in more than a week, with trading largely in small and mid-cap property stocks.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  at the close
                         VN Index       578.07            
                PREV. CLOSE       568.99            
                   % CHANGE        1.60%

SE Asia Stocks - Indonesia rebounds; Thai index above 1,500 mark

Most Southeast Asian stock markets rebounded to end higher on Friday, with the Indonesian benchmark recouping losses on late buying in battered banking shares while domestic mutual funds sent the Thai index above the key 1,500 mark.
Jakarta's composite index   ended up 0.09 percent on the day, trimming its weekly decline to 2.2 percent, making it the region's worst performer. Shares of Bank Negara Indonesia ended up 0.4 percent after early weakness.
The rupiah, which hit a fresh 17-year low versus the dollar on Friday, prompted investors to cut risky holdings on concerns over its impact on corporate production costs, which could hurt earnings.  
Bangkok's SET index   was up 1.1 percent at 1,507.37, the highest close since May 25. Shares of Airports of Thailand  climbed 1.7 percent to their highest in more than three months as an upbeat tourism industry bolstered its earnings outlook, brokers said.
"Shares of many blue-chip firms are underowned as the market has been too pessimistic. The SET index technically passed its bottom and investors took this view to buy again," said senior strategist Viwat Techapoonphol of Tisco Securities.
Domestic institutions bought Thai shares in three straight days to Friday worth a combined 5.3 billion baht ($157.18 million), countering net sales by foreign and retail investors.  
The SET index posted a weekly gain of 0.8 percent, erasing falls early in the week partly as investors awaited the central bank's interest rate meeting on June 10, with some economists expecting a 25-basis-point cut.    
 Indexes in Singapore , Malaysia   and the Philippines   posted a third straight weekly loss, falling 1.7 percent, 0.13 percent and 0.7 percent, respectively.
Vietnam  outperformed with a weekly gain of 1.5 percent.

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
