Vietnam shares close down 0.6 pct on lack of supportive news 

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  closed 0.62 percent lower on Monday as lack of supportive news during the current parliament session prevented the market from breaking a strong resistance level of 580 points, analysts
and traders said.
Nearly half of the shares lost ground, led by dairy product maker Vinamilk  VNM.HM , Vietnam's top firm by market value, and PetroVietnam Gas  GAS.HM  with a fall of 2.17 percent and 2.6 percent, respectively.  
Vietcombank  VCB.HM  rose as much as 3.3 percent to its highest level since Jan. 4, after its officials said the bank
plans to issue new shares to foreign investors, equivalent to 10 percent of existing stock and worth an estimated $510 million.   It closed 0.94 percent higher.  
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  .VNI  at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Mixed; Philippine hits 7-mth closing high on inflows

Southeast Asian stock markets ended mixed on Monday, with the Philippine main index hitting a more than seven-month high amid continuing inflows, while a late rally in telecoms shares sent the Thai benchmark to a one-week closing high.
The Philippine composite index  .PSI  was up 0.95 percent at 7,376.41, its highest close since Aug. 14, 2015. The overall stock market saw net foreign investor buying for an eighth straight day worth 1.1 billion peso ($23.73 million).

Thai SET index  .SETI  finished up 0.8 percent at a one-week closing high of 1,393.63. Telecoms shares were the most actively traded, with Advanced Info Service  ADVANC.BK  up 3.5 percent and Jasmine International  JAS.BK  2.8 percent higher.
The Thai telecoms regulator said Jasmine has failed to meet a deadline on Monday to make the initial payment on a $2.1 billion bid for a 4G spectrum licence it won in an auction in December.  
Stocks in Singapore  .STI  slipped 0.9 percent, its first loss in four days, as investors awaited the city-state's 2016
budget announcement, expected on Thursday. Vietnam  .VNI  fell for a second day to a near two-week low.  
Malaysia  .KLSE  and Indonesia  .JKSE  ended little changed in line with Asia  .MIAPJ0000PUS  as a retreat in oil prices made investors cautious.
