Vietnam index closes up 0.8 pct; eye on funds' restructuring

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  gained for the third consecutive session on Wednesday, ending 0.83 percent up on strong buying from retail investors
ahead of portfolio restructuring by exchange-traded funds, an analyst said.     

Two major exchange-traded funds in Vietnam are likely to buy a large amount of blue-chips during their portfolio restructuring in June. Investors, especially retailers, bought
shares on hopes of selling them later next month, said analyst Nguyen Hoang Phuong of Ho Chi Minh City Securities.  
Stocks of Ho Chi Minh City-based Sacombank  were among the outperformers, jumping 6.38 percent to its highest close in one month, Reuters data showed.
 Vietcombank, the country's biggest listed bank by market value, rose for the third straight session, up 1.4
percent to its highest close since April 25.

The Market Vectors Vietnam   and db x-trackers FTSE Vietnam  exchange-traded funds are scheduled to rearrange their second-quarter investment baskets by late June.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at the close

SE Asia Stocks - Most higher; Thai shares rise for 2nd day

Thai stocks rose for a second session on Wednesday as economic optimism revived appetite for consumer-related shares while Philippine stocks snapped three sessions of losses ahead of the release of first-quarter economic data on Thursday.

Thailand's military rulers have started working on boosting consumption and investment after they seized control of the government last week. Economic policies are expected to be announced next week, including the state budget.

Shares of retailer CP All , Kasikornbank   and Advanced Info Service were among those actively traded amid domestic-led buying. The key SET
index    ended 0.7 percent higher at 1,402.79, the highest close in almost one week.

 The market noted outflows for a seventh session since the imposition of martial law on May 20 followed by the coup two days later. Foreign investors sold shares worth a net 2.8 billion baht ($85.78 million) on Wednesday, Thomson Reuters data  showed.  

The Philippine main index   was up 0.1 percent, after a modest loss of 0.6 percent in three sessions to Tuesday. Shares of Philippine Long Distance Telephone    and Megaworld Corp  led among gainers.

The Philippine economy probably grew the most among regional peers in the first three months of the year, driven by private consumption and post-typhoon rebuilding that could continue to bolster expansion ahead.  

Malaysian shares   gained 0.2 percent as the market brought in net inflows worth a net 209 million ringgit ($64.97 million). Others in the region ended mostly higher as strong economic data in the United States bolstered sentiment across Asia .

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber

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
