Vietnam index dips 0.1 pct on profit taking

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   eased 0.08 percent on Monday, with stocks moving in tight  ranges amid profit taking from recent gains.

Stocks had been on track for a third straight gain by the  break on Monday, following Vietnam's successful sales of its $1 billion offshore dollar-dominated bonds, before the market reversed on profit taking near the close. 
"It's quite a normal adjustment as short-term selling set in when market rises," said deputy manager Nguyen Tuan of An Binh Securities, adding that the index may move sideways this week.
PetroVietNam Gas , Vietnam's biggest firm by market value, lost 0.95 percent, while property firm Vingroup  rose 0.83 percent.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at the close

SE Asia Stocks -Most retreat; Noble Group shares lead Singapore gains

Singapore's key index scaled a more than 7-week closing high on Monday as quarterly results and special dividends boosted Noble Group    shares, while the Malaysian benchmark snapped five sessions of losses with large caps leading the rebound.
Singapore's Straits Times Index   closed up 0.44 percent at 3,301.00, the highest close since Sept. 19. Noble shares jumped 4.2 percent, their biggest one-day gain since April, and were the top percentage gainers on the index.

The rally in Noble Group shares came after the company's third-quarter net profit hit a 2-year high and it announced a special dividend payout.  
Malaysia's main index   edged up 0.2 percent, slightly recovering from its fall over the last five sessions. Shares of Tenaga Nasional , Public Bank   and Maybank gained in strong volumes.

Stocks in Thailand , Indonesia , the Philippines   and Vietnam   retreated after rising earlier on positive sentiment in Asia.
In Bangkok, late selling in shares of top energy firm PTT  sent the main SET index to 1,567.34, its lowest close since Oct. 30. Brokers said declining oil prices dented sentiment in energy shares.
