Vietnam ends at 5-1/2-mth low, worries on sea dispute  

 Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   closed 1.15 percent lower at 537.44 points on Friday, a level unseen since December last year, as investors sold shares fearing political risks.
 Declining shares accounted for 55 percent of the total equities on the exchange, led by PetroVietNam Gas, Vietnam's top listed firm by market value, with a 1.61-percent fall, while food producer Masan Group  <MSN.HM>  lost 2.5 percent.
Analysts said investors sold shares on worries that Vietnam's dispute at sea with China may hype up again this month, a year after the northern neighbour placed a $1-billion oil rig in waters Hanoi claims as its exclusive economic zone.
Lack of supportive news also hurt sentiment, analysts and traders said, while foreign investors have been net sellers of Vietnamese shares in four straight sessions as of Friday.

SE Asia Stocks-Most up; Indonesia falls on weak trade data

Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Friday as investors waited for cues from U.S. data on when the Federal Reserve would hike interest rates, but Indonesian stocks fell after it posted weak April trade numbers.
 The Jakarta composite index   ended the day 0.4 percent lower, trimming its weekly gain to 0.9 percent.
The market posted net foreign selling worth 160.2 billion rupiah ($12.24 million) on the day, including selling seen in shares of Bank Rakyat Indonesia  and Astra International.
 Indonesia posted a trade surplus for the fifth straight month in April, but that stemmed from imports tumbling more quickly from a year earlier than exports did, showing that the economy remained sluggish at the start of the second quarter.

Vietnam's VN Index   shed 1.2 percent, its lowest close since December last year. It dropped 3.1 percent on the week, the region's worst performer.
 Indexes in Singapore , Malaysia   and Thailand   all recovered from early weakness and notched up gains on the week, in line with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .
The Philippine main index   ended 0.6 percent higher, a near two-week closing high, as domestic investors bought shares, while foreign investors sold a net 109 million pesos ($2.45 million).
The index was up 1.5 percent on the week, the region's best performer.
The Philippine central bank's decision after market close on Thursday to keep its policy rate   steady at 4.0 percent for a fifth straight meeting came in line with expectations and underpinned market sentiment.
