SE Asia Stocks-Tepid on lack of catalyst; Vietnam hits over 9-yr closing high

Vietnam shares hit their highest close in more than nine years on Thursday with consumer staples leading the gains, while other   Southeast Asian markets moved sideways in the absence of market-moving macroeconomic triggers.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific  .MIAPJ0000PUS  shares outside Japan fell 0.1 percent.  
"Broadly I think it's more of a mixed sentiment between profit-taking and what kind of next upside catalyst do we have,"  said Taye Shim, head of research at Jakarta-based Mirae Asset Sekuritas.
Vietnam shares  .VNI  rose 0.5 percent to their highest close since February 2008 and have gained 8.9 percent so far
this year.
Seafood processor Nam Viet Corp  ANV.HM  rose 16.4 percent, while Vietnam Dairy Products JSC  VNM.HM  gained 1.6 percent.
Thai shares  .SETI  closed 0.3 percent higher, helped by gains in material and real estate stocks. CIMB Thai Bank Pcl
 CIMBT.BK  rose 4.4 percent, while Origin Property Pcl  ORI.BK  jumped 13.4 percent.
Philippine shares  .PSI  edged up with industrials and consumer discretionary stocks accounting for most of the gains.
Aboitiz Equity Ventures Inc  AEV.PS  gained 0.2 percent, while Jollibee Foods Corp  JFC.PS  rose 3.5 percent.
Singapore shares  .STI  fell 0.4 percent, hurt by losses in industrial and real estate stocks, with Jardine Cycle & Carriage  JCYC.SI  and CapitaLand Ltd  CATL.SI  shedding 1.1 percent and 1.4 percent, respectively. Both stocks were among the worst performers on the index.
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  edged lower as consumer discretionary financials lost ground. Resorts operator Genting
Malaysia Bhd  GENM.KL  fell 2.6 percent, while Malayan Banking Bhd  MBBM.KL  dropped 0.6 percent.
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  closed flat after hitting a record high in the previous session.
