Vietnam index rises; PV GAS hits 9-month high on upbeat oil prices
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI closed up 0.81 percent on Monday, snapping the two-day losing streak late last week, with gains in real estate and energy stocks offsetting losses in most shares.
Property and retail company Vingroup VIC.HM rose 2.8 percent.
PetroVietnam Gas GAS.HM climbed 2.78 percent to hit the highest closing level since August 2015, while oil prices jumped as long-time bear Goldman Sachs said the market had ended almost two years of oversupply and flipped to a deficit following global oil disruptions.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index .VNI at the close.

SE Asia Stocks-Thai rebounds on GDP data; Indonesia hits 2-1/2-mth low
Most Southeast Asian indexes were flat to higher on Monday, with Thai stocks rebounding after first-quarter GDP grew faster than expected, while Indonesia closed lower as concerns over weak corporate earnings hit sentiment.
Thai stocks .SETI closed slightly higher after Southeast Asia's second-largest economy outpaced expectations in the first quarter to expand at the fastest annual rate in three years.
Indonesian .JKSE stocks however closed at a two-and-a-half month low, dragged down by consumer staples. Unilever Indonesia UNVR.JK lost 3 percent.
"We are hearing rumours that first quarter earnings are expected to drop on a y-o-y comparison, which collectively is
weighing down on the corporate earnings outlook," said Taye Shim, an analyst with KDB Daewoo Indonesia.
The Philippine index meanwhile extended gains from Friday to hit a fresh 9-month high as investor sentiment remained buoyant after maverick mayor Rodrigo Duterte emerged as the president-elect last week.
"President-elect Rodrigo Duterte disclosed his economic agenda upon his transition late last week, which had been taken positively by the market," said Luz Lorenzo of brokerage Maybank Kim Eng.
The Philippine main index .PSI closed 1 percent higher, led by consumer staples. It gained 6.4 percent last week on
hopes Duterte would continue pro-business economic policies that are good for markets.
"The stocks have been rising all day and it's still politics related. There is still residual thankfulness that the elections
went smoothly," she said.
Vietnam's benchmark index .VNI snapped two straight sessions of losses after the country posted a trade surplus in
April, better than government estimates.
Energy stocks led the gainers as oil prices jumped to a 2016 high after Goldman Sachs said the market had flipped into
Asian stocks posted modest gains, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS rising 0.4
