Thai bourse begins outbound roadshows in Asia, Europe, USA in May-June

BANGKOK, May 14, 2014 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) joins hands with three securities companies to kick off first series of roadshows this year in Asia, Europe and the United States during May-June, aiming to present the strengths and potential of Thai listed companies and economy, thus boosting confidence among foreign investors.
SET President Charamporn Jotikasthira said that the bourse would continuously  attract foreign funds by holding roadshows to promote insightful information of Thailand's economic overview and Thai listed companies' growth potential among global funds in Asia, Europe and the United States in May and June. It would be the right timing to meet directly with foreign funds managers after Thai listed companies had announced their first-quarter financial statements.
"These three roadshows consist of 30 strong and high potential listed companies, with a combined market capitalization of THB 2.28 trillion (approx. USD 71.25 billion), accounting for 18 percent of the total market value.  The teams will meet and present information for investors in three continents, namely Asia, Europe and the United States. This will be a great chance for medium-sized listed companies to meet with foreign investors as about half of the 30 companies were not constituents of SET50," Charamporn added.
The first roadshow will be in Edinburgh, London and Paris from May 19-23 in  cooperation with CLSA Securities (Thailand) Limited, under the name "SET & CLSA EU-UK Outbound Roadshow 2014." Then, SET will join with BNP Paribas Securities and Finansia Syrus Securities  to meet investors in Hong Kong and Singapore, key financial hubs in Asia, from June 9-13. After that, the roadshow team will join with Daiwa Securities and Thanachart Securities traveling to Toronto Boston and New York from June 23-27. Each roadshow will be participated by about 10 listed  companies.
Earlier this month, SET, together with DBS Vickers Securities (Thailand) pcl,  held an inbound roadshow called "SET-Thai Corporate Day 2014" in Bangkok. In addition, "Thailand Focus", the annual major inbound roadshow will be held in Bangkok in August. In 2014, SET organized seven overseas roadshows and two domestic roadshows.

Vietnam index ends up 3 pct, but falls seen later this week

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  rose 3 percent to close at 529.53 points on Wednesday, boosted by buying in several blue chips including bank and
securities stocks, but weak selling could lead to more falls later this week, traders said.
Shares of Hanoi-based Vietcombank   rose 7 percent to close at 26,000 dong, followed by Baoviet Holdings   with a 6.91 percent rise and Saigon Securities   that rose 6.57 percent.
"In coming days the index may fall gain, because those who want to sell stocks only slow their selling today to wait for prices to rise higher, then they will sell," a Hanoi-based Vietnamese trader said.
A total of 108.22 million shares changed hands on Wednesday, up nearly 10 percent from the previous day.  
Traders and analysts say Vietnam's stock market has been on a downward trend, after the index hit a two-week high at 603.25 points on April 8, Reuters data show.

SE Asia Stocks - Rise amid inflows; Indonesia up on Jokowi hopes

Indonesian shares jumped to 11-month highs on Wednesday as chances of a win for a popular presidential candidate increased ahead of a July election, while Thai stocks rose the most in three months amid foreign inflows into markets across the region.
Jakarta's main index   closed up 1.4 percent at 4,991.64, after Jakarta Governor Joko "Jokowi" Widodo boosted his chances in the presidential election by securing the support of the country's second-largest political party.
The market brought in 1.26 trillion rupiah ($109.22 million), the biggest daily inflows since April 9, Indonesia's stock market will be shut on Thursday for a holiday.
Bangkok's SET index  rose 1.5 percent to close at 1,396.03, recovering some of the losses over the past five sessions. Brokers said the gain was in line with Asia, tracking the S&P 500 which closed at a record high overnight.
Net foreign inflows into Thai stocks were a modest 189 million baht ($5.79 million) after two sessions of outflows.
"External sentiment did help the local market. The issue about the election re-run was also among the domestic factors but it remains to be seen," said Koraphat Vorachet, an analyst at Nomura Pattnasin.
A meeting between Thailand's interim prime minister and the Election Commission to fix a date for polls that the government hopes will break a stalemate was postponed on Wednesday due to security concerns over the venue.
 In the Philippines, the stock market took in net foreign inflows of 2.86 billion peso ($65 million) amid strong buying interest in shares of Ayala Land   and Universal Robina

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
