Vietnam index rises 0.3 pct, Vinamilk lends support

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  closed up 0.31 percent on Wednesday, snapping a two-day losing streak, thanks in part to the rebound of top listed firm Vinamilk  VNM.HM  despite the domestic currency's fall and foreign investors' selling.
The Vietnamese dong  VND=VN  dropped to its lowest level since Sept. 17 on concerns over a possible U.S. interest rate hike next month and demand of the greenback for import repayments.  
Dairy products maker Vinamilk rose 1.63 percent after having lost a combined 12 percent since Nov. 17, and PetroVietnam Gas  GAS.HM  rallied 0.93 percent following two straight losses after oil prices hit two-week highs on Tuesday.  
Foreign investors extended their net selling position for the second consecutive session, having offloaded a net 147.66 billion dong ($6.56 million) worth of Vietnamese equities.
The index, Southeast Asia's best performer this year, has lost 1.9 percent so far in November,
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  .

SE Asia Stocks-Philippines closes at more than two-week high

Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Wednesday, with shares in the Philippines closing at over two-week highs a day ahead of third-quarter economic data but the Singapore index reversed early gains after the city-state softened growth outlook.
The Philippine key index  .PSI  climbed 0.95 percent to a more than two-week closing high of 7,059.14, with shares of Aboitiz Equity Ventures  AEV.PS  and Energy Development Corp  EDC.PS  leading top gainers amid foreign-led buying.
Philippine economic growth likely slowed in the third quarter from the previous three months due to sluggish farm output and exports and as government spending lost momentum.  
The Jakarta Composite Index  .JKSE  rose 0.9 percent to a three-week closing high, the Kuala Lumpur composite index  .KLSE  extended gains for a fifth session and Vietnam  .VNI   advanced 0.3 percent, rebounding after two days of weakness.
Energy-related shares tracked strength in global oil prices.

Shares of Malaysia's Sapurakencana Petroleum  SKPE.KL  jumped 3.3 percent, among outperformers on MSCI's index of Southeast Asia  .
Stocks in Singapore and Thailand were among weak spots, with the Straits Times Index  .STI  sliding 1.1 percent and the Thai SET index  .SETI  down 0.3 percent, both touching one-week closing lows.
 Asian stocks eased on Wednesday as geopolitical tensions flared after Turkey downed a Russian fighter jet.
