Vietnam index ends up 0.7 pct; bargain-hunting extended
The benchmark VN Index closed up 0.7 percent on Friday as bargain-hunting in blue-chips extended into a second session and investors expected companies to report positive earnings next month, an analyst said.
Food maker Masan led the gains with a 2.58 percent jump, while Vietcombank , the country's largest bank by market capitalisation, rose 1.32 percent.
"Bargain hunters focused on blue-chip companies, which are expected to deliver strong performance reports next month," said analyst Tran Thang Long at BIDV Securities.
The Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange had touched a two-week low on Wednesday as investors looked to cut margin trading levels.
