Vietnam index falls 0.55 pct, OPEC lets down
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index    hit a fresh five-month low at its Thursday close as energy-related shares extended falls after expectations for OPEC
to cut oil output became low.
Brent crude fell to a four-year low under $76.30 a barrel on Thursday as it became increasingly unlikely that OPEC would cut output to support prices during a meeting in Austria.

Bargain hunting helped rising shares outperform the decliners by nearly two to one, but the index failed to rebound as PetroVietNam Gas  <GAS.HM> , Vietnam's top listed firm accounting for a fifth of the market value, broke its six-month low close hit on Wednesday to end 3.19 percent down.
Petrovietnam Drilling & Well Services , another subsidiary of unlisted state oil and gas group Petrovietnam, lost 3.01 percent to a level unseen in more than four months, Reuters data showed.
Crude oil is one of Vietnam's major cash earners in the country's export-driven economy.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  at close

SE Asia Stocks-Philippine index near two-week low after weak Q3 GDP

Philippine shares hit the lowest in nearly two weeks on Thursday after the country posted slower economic growth in the third quarter while most other indexes in Southeast Asia snapped rising streaks as energy related stocks fell in line with declining global oil prices. [O/R]      The Philippine economy slowed to its weakest pace in more than five years in the third quarter, hurt by a decline in public spending and farm output and signalling a longer-than-expected pause in the central bank's tightening cycle.
Manila's key share index    was down 1.24 percent at  7,265.34, the lowest close since Nov. 17.
Foreign investors bought a net 18.3 billion pesos ($408 million) worth stocks amid inflows into large caps such as SM Investments Corp    and Alliance Global Group while outflows hit shares such as SM Prime Holdings .
SM Prime Holdings dropped 4.8 percent after a share placement at a lower-than-market price.  
Malaysia's main index   slipped 0.7 percent after three sessions of gains, dragged lower by shares of Sapurakencana Petroleum . Singapore's key index
 eased 0.2 percent, nearly erasing gains over the past  two sessions.
Among losers in the region, shares of Singapore's Keppel Corporation   was down 0.4 percent and Thailand's energy firm PTT   slipped 1 percent.
The Thai SET index   ended up 0.6 percent, helped by selective buying in aviation shares such as Airports of Thailand   and Thai Airways Internationa , with traders citing lower oil prices as helping to bolster the sector's outlook.

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
