Vietnam index closes up 0.2 pct; big-caps lead

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   ended up 0.2 percent on Thursday, lifted by gains in some large-caps while profit-taking was seen in most other blue-chips and penny stocks, an analyst said.
The country's top firm by market capitalisation, PetroVietNam Gas , rose 2.13 percent to end near a three-week high, while food producer Masan Group  gained for the fourth straight session, closing up 2.11 percent at a level unseen in seven weeks, Reuters data showed.
But many stocks fell as investors took profit around the resistance level of 560 points, said analyst Do Bao Ngoc of MB Securities.
 Sentiment is cautious around this level, so the index would move sideway in low liquidity for several sessions, Ngoc added.
 Here is a snapshot of the VN Index    at the close

SE Asia Stocks - Philippine near 1-month low; economic hopes further lift Thailand  

Thai shares rose for a third day on Thursday amid active buying in builders and consumer stocks as the military government has started working to revive domestic economy, while Philippine shares hit a near one-month low after a weaker-than-expected economic growth.
The SET index   was up 0.4 percent at 1,408.51, its highest close since May 19. Shares of builder Ch Karnchang    jumped more than 9 percent and retailer CP All   closed at a one-year high.
The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) is expected to unveil economic policies next week, including state budget.  
The Philippine main index   finished down 1.6 percent, its worst drop in more than a week, led down by Metropolitan Bank and Trust  , which fell 3 percent to a near one-month low.
The Philippine economy unexpectedly grew at its slowest pace in two years in the first quarter, hurt by the impact of last year's super typhoon, raising some speculation the central bank may delay an expected increase in its policy rate.
Singapore's index   climbed almost 1 percent to a near one-year high. Malaysia  rose for a second day to around one-week high and Vietnam  <.VNI>  extended gains for a fourth day.  
Indonesia was shut for a market holiday.

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.
