Vietnam index ends down 4.7 pct, buying may support

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   ended down 4.68 percent on Monday at a four-month low as investors continued selling due in part to repayment pressure, but the fall may not last long as bargain hunters could soon step in, an analyst and traders said.
The index lost 25.41 points to close at 517.05, the lowest since Jan. 9, 2014, Reuters data show.
 "There could be one or two more spans of decline before the market starts rising again," said Nguyen Tuan, a deputy manager of An Binh Securities. Each span would be equal to the drop in percentage on Monday, he said.
 A fall in share prices could have prompted a group of  investors to offload stocks to repay the loans taken for investment in equities, while other retail investors were worried and could continue selling, he said.
Major investors, both Vietnamese and foreigners, have been buying as shares become cheaper, and their purchase in coming days could provide support to the market, he said.
Traders said the fall on Monday was also caused by worries over tension in Vietnam's waters caused by China since early  this month.
Pharmaceutical firm DHG   topped the losers' list, with shares losing 6.98 percent, followed by technology firm FPT Corp  with a 6.91 percent fall.
Companies in the oil and gas sector also lost ground, including PV Drilling    and Petrovietnam Gas.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at the close

SE Asia Stocks - Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia weak ahead of holiday

Thai shares ended at a six-week low on Monday amid caution over political protests, while the Philippines snapped two days of gains as profit-taking hit large caps such as Philippine Long Distance Telephone .
Bangkok's SET index  ended down 0.16 percent at  1,375.14, the lowest since March 28, as foreigners net sold stocks worth 1.3 billion baht ($40 million) ahead of a  market holiday on Tuesday.  
The Thai stock market will reopen on Wednesday.
Two anti-government protesters were injured in a blast outside the Thai prime minister's offices, police said on Sunday, as the two sides in a long political crisis squared off over who would run the country.
Thailand's interim prime minister expressed hope on Monday that February's annulled general election could be re-run soon, and said anti-government protesters would not succeed in getting the Senate to impose an alternative premier.
In Manila, foreign investors led the selling, with data from the stock market showing net foreign outflows of 600 million peso ($13.8 million). The main index  eased 0.5 percent, coming off an 11-month high hit on Friday.
Singapore shares    shed about 1 percent to close at a near one-month low, while Malaysia   ended slightly lower.

Both are closed for a market holiday on Tuesday.  
Vietnam   dropped 4.7 percent to its lowest close in more than four months, as tensions with China mounted.
Indonesia   bucked the trend, extending its gains for a second session, with shares of coal miners such as Harum Energy    and Adaro Energy  outperforming after better-than-expected quarterly results, brokers said.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. 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
