Vietnam shares flat in mixed trade
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI stood flat at the close on Thursday as gains in energy stocks helped offset losses in most shares on profit-taking.
PetroVietnam Gas GAS.HM extended its winning streak to a fifth consecutive session with a 2.49 percent rise after oil prices edged up as an upcoming meeting of oil producing countries overshadowed record high U.S. stockpiles.
Vietcombank VCB.HM , the country's top lender by market value, dipped 0.24 percent and BIDV BID.HM also dropped 0.55 percent.

SE Asia Stocks-Singapore posts best gain in over 2 weeks; inflows lift others
Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Thursday, with Singapore posting its biggest gain in more than two weeks and Philippine index touching over two-month high, as upbeat data on U.S. jobs lifted sentiment in Asia.
The key Straits Times Index .STI jumped 2.2 percent, the best single day rise since Feb. 15. Better risk sentiment in the region prompted investors buying risky assets again despite data showing activity in the city-state's factories fell in February.
Thai stocks .SETI notched up about 1 percent gain in a choppy session as weak consumer confidence data brought in some profit taking. Indonesia .JKSE , where consumer confidence remained optimistic in February, gained slightly.
Philippine composite index .PSI advanced for a third day to the highest close since Dec. 28, with inflows continuing for a third day, stock exchange data showed. Vietnam .VNI erased early losses to finish the day in positive
Malaysia .KLSE , bucking the trend, was slightly down a day after the index closed at a more than two-month closing high on inflows. Malaysia's exports in January are expected to have grown at a faster pace than the previous month. The data is due out on Friday.
Foreign inflows to the region continued this month amid strength in regional currencies, with net inflows of Thai shares on Thursday worth 5.2 billion baht ($147 million) and Malaysia worth 392 million ringgit ($95 million).
