Vietnam index near 4-wk high; foreigners buy blue chips

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  posted a week of all gains, climbing 0.64 percent on Friday to its highest close in nearly four weeks, supported by
foreign investors buying big-cap shares, an analyst said.
The index has risen a combined 3.4 percent this week to close at 562.02 points on Friday, a level unseen since May 7.
While many small and mid-cap shares lost due to profit  taking near resistance level, the index still ended higher as foreign investors were interested in some large-caps, said analyst Vu Duy Khanh at Navibank Securities.
PetroVietNam Gas, Vietnam's top firm by market capitalisation, increased 1.56 percent, and property firm Vingroup   was up 2.24 percent.
Blue chips are likely to gain further in coming sessions, analysts said. But more profit taking in other shares would keep the index around the current level, Khanh said.
Foreign investors net bought 125 billion dong ($5.91 million) worth of shares on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange on Thursday, above their average daily net purchase value this month of 98 billion dong, exchange's data showed.

SE Asia Stocks -Thai shares eke out slim gain in May; most others up

Thai shares climbed to their highest level in nearly a month on Friday, marking their fourth straight month of gains, as economic hopes brought buyers to
benefitting sectors such as banks   and retailers   though foreign fund flows remained weak.
The benchmark SET index   ended up 0.5 percent at 1,415.73, the highest close since May 2, eking out a slim 0.1 percent gain for the month. The market rally this week, which was led by domestic buyers, helped shares erase losses made early in the month.
 Foreign investors were net sellers worth a net 2.2 billion baht ($67.12 million), taking their net selling in seven days since the imposition of martial law on May 20 to 33 billion baht  ($1.01 billion), Thomson Reuters data showed.  
Domestic institutions and retail investors bought shares this month as the military government moved to restart public spending and make delayed subsidy payments to rice farmers.

Data from the Bank of Thailand showed a current account deficit of $0.64 billion in April and exports falling from a year earlier. Consumption edged up in April but investment dipped from the previous month.
Southeast Asian stock markets had a mixed month in May.
Indonesia  fell 1.8 percent ahead of trade data on Monday. Foreign selling hit stocks such as Astra International  and Bank Mandiri  , Thomson Reuters data showed. The Jakarta index rose for a sixth month, adding 1.1 percent in May.
Singapore   and Malaysia    extended gains for a fourth month, up 1 percent and 0.1 percent, respectively.
The Philippines  recorded a 0.9 percent loss, its first in five months, and Vietnam   dropped 2.8 percent, a second month of loss.

This year in Thailand-what next?

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. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

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
