Vietnam index ends up 1.44 pct, hopes for higher foreign stake

 Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   ended up 1.44 percent on Friday on expectations of an imminent rise in the foreign investment ceiling in listed brokerage firms, analysts said.

"There has been some information in the market that the government will be allowing foreign investors to hold 100 percent stake in listed securities firms on Friday," said analyst Nguyen The Minh at Viet Capital Securities.

Chairman of the State Securities Commission Vu Bang told local media on Friday afternoon that opening more rooms for foreign investors should be done soon.
Saigon Securities Incorp   advanced 6.87 percent and Ho Chi Minh City Securities  rose 7 percent.

SE Asia Stocks -Thai shares post best weekly gain since Jan on policy hopes

Thai shares closed above seven-month highs on Friday, ending the week with their best gains since January, due to buying in consumer   and  construction shares   as the government's investment plans revived economic outlook.
The SET index   was up 0.3 percent at 1,458.02, its highest close since Oct. 24. The benchmark rose 3 percent on the week, Southeast Asia's best performer, in part driven by shares  in the commerce sector.
Shares of retailers received a boost after the military government's acceleration of rice payments to farmers was seen to indicate better urban spending prospects. Big C Supercenter jumped 9.5 percent on the week to an around seven-month high.
The Commerce Ministry said prices of many comsumer goods would be capped for six months to November to hold down living costs, boosting the economy and confidence.
 Foreign investors bought Thai shares for a fifth straight day on Friday. Their net buying this week was worth 8 billion baht ($245 million) versus net selling of 33 billion baht ($1.01 billion) in nine sessions since the imposition of martial law on May 20.
The Thai economy has bottomed in May, economist Pragrom Pathomboorn of Broker KGI Securities said.
 "Foreign investors bought back shares after panic selling and investment policy limitations due to the martial law. The market upside is justified as economic recovery is on track on the back of fiscal stimulus," he added.
Other stock markets in Southeast Asia mostly gained on Friday in line with their local currencies as the European Central Bank's policy easing boosted hopes of increased capital flows to Asia.
Stocks in Indonesia  ended the day almost unchanged, up nearly 1 percent on the week, as investors awaited Bank Indonesia's interest rate review next week.
Philippine shares   were nearly flat after higher-than-expected inflation in May triggered expectations of higher interest rates. The Philippine index posted a weekly gain of 1.7 percent, the region's second best.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber

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
