Vietnam index drops but posts sixth straight weekly gain          

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI  ended down 0.21 percent on Friday for a straight second session of losses with most blue chips heading south led by food stocks.
Dairy products maker Vinamilk  VNM.HM , the country's top firm by market value, eased 0.69 percent, followed by food producer Masan Group  MSN.HM , which dropped 2.08 percent.
PetroVietnam Gas  GAS.HM  bucked the trend, rallying 2.86 percent after oil prices rose on Thursday with U.S. crude
hitting a six-month high, as investors weighed a forecast for tighter global supplies against signs of another storage build at the hub for U.S. crude futures.  
The index, Southeast Asia's best performer in 2015, has gained a combined 0.7 percent, posting the sixth straight weekly gain.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  .VNI  at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Malaysia falls over 1 pct, Philippines bounces back

Most Southeast Asian stocks closed lower on Friday, led by Malaysia which posted its slowest quarterly economic growth since 2009, while the Philippine index bounced back from the previous session's losses.
Malaysia's economy expanded 4.2 percent in January-March compared with a year earlier, broadly in line with expectations but down from the 4.5 growth percent in the previous three months, as exports and domestic demand were weak.  
"The balance of risks in 2016 is skewed towards growth disappointment and fiscal slippage, with inflation pressures of
second-order concern," ANZ stated in a note on Friday.  
The FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI index  .KLSE  closed down 1.26 percent, driven by basic materials.  
Investment bank CIMB Group  CIMB.KL  was the biggest loser with a drop of 5.78 percent, while oilfield services provider Sapurakencana Petroleum Bhd  SKPE.KL  finished about 3.1 percent down.
"Structurally, lower oil prices mean that Malaysia will still be confronted with significant growth and fiscal
headwinds, with residual concerns about 1MDB," adds ANZ.
The troubled Malaysian state fund, which is at the centre of a multi-billion-dollar graft scandal, said last month it was in default after missing some bond payments.
In the Philippines, stocks rallied after the country's central bank left the benchmark interest rate flat at 4 percent,
expecting economic growth to remain strong.  
The Philippine main index  .PSI  closed up 1.53 percent led by industrials.
Ayala Corp  AC.PS  closed higher 5.28 percent, while Petron Corp  PCOR.PS  finished 4.6 percent up.  
"President-elect Rodrigo Duterte disclosed his eight-point economic agenda upon his transition yesterday which has been taken positively by the market," said Luz Lorenzo, a Maybank KimEng analyst.  
The wide-ranging economic agenda includes tax reforms to accelerating infrastructure building to support services for
farmers and attracting foreign investments by reducing crime, according to media reports.  
Indonesia  .JKSE  fell 0.9 percent, dragged down by financials and materials, while Thailand's main index  .SETI  
closed marginally down.

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
