Vietnam index ends up 0.5 pct; falls likely ahead

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  rallied 0.47 percent on Monday to close at 544.06 points on gains in some blue-chips, but analysts expect the index to
decline in the near future.

Hanoi-based lender Vietcombank led the gains, with shares rising 3.8 percent, followed by food producer Masan Group  with a 1.68 percent rise.  
Money also flowed into speculative stocks, said Le Dac An, an analyst from Tan Viet Securities. Property firms FLC Group   climbed 6.73 percent while Hoang Quan Corp  was up 2.99 percent.
"Rises in speculative stocks suggested a short-term gain for the market as investors would snap quick profits near the index's resistance level of 550 points," An said.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at the close.

SE Asia Stocks -Thai shares weaker; economic policy in focus after coup  

Southeast Asian stocks mostly  fell on Monday, with Thai shares declining for a second day as caution remained after a military coup last week, while Malaysia hit its lowest close in more than two weeks on selling by local investors.
The Thai SET index   ended down 0.6 percent at 1,388.29, coming off the day's low of 1,381.01. Shares of PTT , the country's top energy firm by market capitalisation, dropped 2.6 percent amid concerns about possible energy reforms by the military government, brokers said.
But builders such as Ch Karnchang  jumped on expectation that the military government would speed up disbursements for infrastructure projects that had been put on hold during months of political unrest, while consumer stocks, including Charoen Pokphand Foods , gained ahead of economic policies next week.  
Foreign investors sold shares worth a net 3.4 billion baht ($104.31 million) on Monday, after offloading a net 20.06 billion baht ($615.43 million) over the last four sessions following the military coup.
